Welcome to the Hawthorne Public Schools 
2019 Referendum Homepage


September 25, 2019

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!  As many of you are aware, the official referendum results show that voters have overwhelmingly approved the Hawthorne Public School District's $24.4 Million District-Wide Facilities Referendum Program with 1412 Yes votes (68.7%) and 643 No votes (31.3%).

We are very appreciative of the overwhelming voter support and truly excited about the future of the Hawthorne Public Schools. The items in this referendum will provide much needed facility, safety and security upgrades as well as state of the art educational spaces for students in all five of our schools. On behalf of everyone in the Hawthorne Public Schools, we want to thank our parents and community members for supporting this referendum and the children of this community.

As stated in my recent back to school night presentations, these upgrades and renovations are expected to be completed in approximately three years. With that being said, we've already begun meeting and look forward to sharing regular updates regarding our progress.

Once again, we thank all of you for your support and look forward to beginning the upgrades and renovations as soon as possible.

With sincere thanks,

Richard A. Spirito
Superintendent of Schools
