Thanks to a very supportive community two referenda, passed in 2002, and two more referenda passed in 2006 allowed the District to add additional staff, more programs, and open a 33,000 sq. ft. addition to the high school, a new Intermediate School for 750 students in grades 4-6 which opened in the fall of 2004, an addition of five classrooms to Bristol Grade School housing students in grades K-3 opening in 2005, and thanks to a joint agreement with the developers of Grande Reserve, a new Elementary School was built at no cost to the taxpayers, which opened in August 2006.

In the fall of 2007 District 115 opened another new elementary school for 650 pre-k-6 students at Bristol Bay, also constructed through an agreement with the developers who put $6 million towards that effort. Additionally in 2009 another pre-K-6 grade elementary school at the Autumn Creek subdivision opened to stay ahead of a growing student body and keep the student/teacher ratio low. The Yorkville High School Academy was also opened in the fall of 2008 and houses the entire freshman class in the original high school building that has been reconstructed to meet the needs of the new advanced freshman high school curriculum. Yorkville Grade School and Circle Center Grade School were both completely renovated with new paint, air conditioning, new lighting, and flooring in 2007.  Passage of the building fund referendum in 2006 also allowed the District to build a new middle school for 1,000 students in grades 7 and 8 in the Raintree subdivision located south of town, opening in in the fall of 2008, enrollment exceeded 800 students.
