Winnebago District 323

Mission StatementWinnebago CUSD #323 is located in the Village of Winnebago and services students from five rural communities. Students and families from Burritt, Rockford, and Winnebago Township as well as from the Villages of Winnebago and Seward are part of our education family.

Winnebago CUSD #323 is a PreK-12 grade district that provides comprehensive, strong core academic programs. The district is comprised of one high school, one middle school, and two elementary schools.

Our mascot, the Winnebago Indian, is a copyrighted mascot that was researched and drawn by local artist Tom Heflin.

Registering to Vote
In cooperation with Winnebago County Clerk, residents of District #323 will now be able to register to vote at the District Office or in the office of any of the District’s schools. If you are new to the District or if you have moved since you last registered to vote, you can register at the school nearest you.

Contract Negotiations

The Board, District Administration and the Winnebago Education Association (WEA) have worked diligently since April, 2017 to reach an agreement on a contract that will allow our schools to continue providing the best education possible for all of our children. The current collective bargaining agreement expired in August, 2017, and everyone continues to work hard to get a new agreement in place. Teachers continue to receive compensation, benefits and protections under the contract that expired in August, 2017.  

The parties jointly agreed to participate in federal mediation in January, 2018. Through mediation, the parties have reached tentative agreements on a multitude of issues. However, the parties have not reached an agreement on the important economic items of salary and retirement.

In April 2018, the Winnebago Education Association (WEA) initiated the public posting process, pursuant to Section 1130.35(c) of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board (IELRB).  The public proposals may be viewed on the State of Illinois Educational Relations Labor Board web site

Intent to Strike

The District is in communication with the WEA and the mediator.  The parties are working on scheduling additional negotiation sessions to bring this matter to a conclusion for the benefit of the School District, WEA, and our students and citizens of the community.
