School District 204 Superintendent’s Message / March 21, 2024


Above / The Crouse Education Center (Administration Building) for Indian Prairie School District 204 is located at 780 Shoreline Drive in Aurora, DuPage County, Illinois.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Adrian B. Talley, Ed.D., Superintendent

As the weather begins to turn warmer, Spring Break marks a time for renewal, planting, and planning for the future growth that is sure to come!

As a District, we have continued to plant seeds for our own future growth, as was shared in a Facilities Master Plan presented and accepted by our Board of Education this past December. This plan identifies and prioritizes districtwide facility needs and proposed solutions, with a special focus on safety and security, building infrastructure, and classroom upgrades.

The District has also been carefully evaluating our need to enhance student access to mental health services and reduce class sizes.

This spring, the District will be gathering the community’s feedback on a funding proposal that may appear on the November 2024 ballot to address important building and operating challenges, without imposing a net tax rate increase. Many months of planning have gone into this proposal, and we are excited to share it with you.

Future updates will focus on our planning efforts completed to date, details about the proposed improvements, and how you can provide input on the funding proposal.

Our goal is to keep you informed and engaged. These are your schools, and your voice is important as we discuss how to protect and improve them.

Have a relaxing Spring Break!


Adrian B. Talley, Ed.D.

Crouse Education Center, the school district’s administration building where most school board meetings are held, is located in DuPage County.

In late 2023, District 204 completed a comprehensive facilities assessment. Wight & Company, a well-recognized Chicago-based architecture, engineering and design-build firm, was contracted to support the process. Residents that might have missed the presentation at the board meeting with Q&A from school board members are encouraged to watch the overview of the plan that features a summary of identified needs and priorities at 35 buildings throughout the school district.
