June 2007


District 211 school board member Bill Lloyd has posted School’s out for summer and an update on District 211 business issues.

As far as negotiating salaries with the teachers union, Mr. Lloyd writes:

For those who have asked and those who may be curious, the board has chosen to continue to follow its established protocol, thus the board has opted to continue to use district administration along with the board’s attorney to handle contract negotiations on behalf of the board. There will be no board member at the negotiating table or in the room as an observer.

This should be changed, in my never-to-be-humble opinion.

The rumor I hear is that the hearing in front of a judge about whether District 211 violated state law by entering into a no-bid contract for energy with the Illinois Energy Consortium has been moved to Friday, June 22.
