Champaign Schools Future Facilities

Following an eight-year discussion and two-year intensive planning process, the Unit 4 Board of Education voted  to place a question on the November 4 ballot to fund the construction of a new Central High School and an expansion and extensive renovation of the current Centennial High School.

The two projects, totaling $149 million, would address the District’s pressing capacity needs while providing 21st Century learning spaces for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs, computer science, innovation and entrepreneurship, the arts and music, early childhood programs, and project-based learning.

The conversation about where to build a new Central High School has been ongoing since 2006, and in the past two years the District has worked to engage the community on this topic. Here you will find information about the Planning and Programming Process, the New Central Site Selection Process, Community Engagement Efforts, and Frequently Asked Questions.

If you have specific questions or feedback, please feel free to contact Community Relations Coordinator Stephanie Stuart at or share your thoughts with our Board of Education at
