Fieldcrest Community Unit School District 6 school district was formed in 1992 when the Minonk-Dana-Rutland (MDR), Toluca, and Wenona school districts consolidated.
Fieldcrest CUSD 6 is located in the heart of Illinois, close to the Bloomington-Normal and Peoria hubs. Covering approximately 267 square miles, it is home to the communities of Dana, LaRose, Minonk, Rutland, Toluca, and Wenona, as well as farms, rural businesses and residences.
I-39, the interstate connecting the Bloomington-Normal and Rockford communities, runs through the center of the Fieldcrest school district. I-39 provides quick connections to I-55 and I-74 at Bloomington-Normal, to I-88 at LaSalle-Peru, to I-88 at Rochelle, and to
I-90 at Rockford.
The three larger communities in the district (Minonk, Toluca and Wenona) all have a presence, either public or private, on the web.
