Schools: Turf Field Vote Scheduled; Food Workers Needed

Elwood school district voters will be asked to decide on amending a 2017 bond project to allow for a turf athletic field at Elwood-John H. Glenn HIgh School.

The project, scheduled for a vote Oct. 18, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., would cost an additional $2.45 million.

The Elwood School District’s Board of Education adopted the resolution at its July 7 meeting.

“Our Board of Education and administration greatly value community input,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Bossert. “After hearing from a large percentage of our community regarding the addition of a turf field, we are asking our community to reconsider this portion of the bond work.”

In addition to replacing the existing grass field with turf, the project includes the installation of new football and soccer goalposts, as well as lacrosse goals and accessories. Perimeter safety netting would also be installed, and new high jump, long jump and pole vault runways would be added.

If approved, field work would likely be completed next summer.

The district  plans a community forum to address questions. District residents are encouraged to visit the district’s website,, for more information on the proposal.
