We would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all who supported the 2011 educational referendum and took time to help CURB volunteers disperse information about it. While our efforts did not create the desired outcome, we hope and believe District 208 voters are now more enlightened about the tough financial constraints facing RBHS administrators and the school board.

It is our hope that RBHS decision-makers will continue to put RBHS students first, but to do that they will need the help of the community. It is important that citizens understand how education in Illinois is funded, so we hope the election will result in greater public involvement – attending school board meetings, reviewing and asking questions about the budget, and making a commitment to serve RBHS so that it continues to be a distinguished high school.

CURB members will continue to offer information and advocate for the best high school RBHS can be. We look forward to working with all members of the RBHS community to ensure its continued success.
