New Student Information System and Financial Management System
At the October 23 Board of Education meeting, the board approved the purchase of a new student information system and financial management system. For the past 16 months, district administrators have been investigating options for a new system. The Board of Education authorized the purchase of Skyward’s School Management System.

Sale of Property
Also at the October 23 Board of Education meeting the Board approved a resolution authorizing the sale of the district owned property at 191st Street and Harlem Avenue in Tinley Park through a sealed bid process. Bid opening will be December 5, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.  Parameters of the sale include: minimum bid price of $5.9 million; security deposit with bid of $100,000; and closing within 18 months.

Board of Education
Several years ago the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) declared a day in November as School Board Members Day to recognize the nearly 6,000 elected school board members in the state.  This year Saturday, November 15 is designated as “School Board Members Day” in Illinois.

Lincoln-Way High School District 210 is strong today because of the work of all board members who have served this district since 1951. The Lincoln-Way Board of Education has supported high academic achievement, a strong extracurricular program, and fair-minded discipline for students while being fiscally responsible to taxpayers.

The Board of Education sets goals each year for the district to achieve. Listed below are the goals for the 2014-2015 school year:

  • Goal #1: Increase student achievement by developing highly effective programs for instructional coaching, teacher evaluation, staff development, and data-focused instruction.
  • Goal #2: Continue to improve parental and community communication opportunities.
  • Goal #3: Develop and implement programs to allow the district to strengthen its fiscal health.
  • Goal #4: Develop technological solutions to address the growing needs for students and staff in both daily instruction and student assessment.

Lincoln-Way High School Board of Education members are:
Dr. Arvid C. Johnson, president; James E. Gast, vice-president; Dee Molinare, secretary; Christine M. Glatz, member; Christopher A. Kosel, member; Kevin L. Molloy, member; and Stephen D. White, member.

Thanks again to all our current board members and all past board members for a job well done.

Senate Bill 16 – a reprieve
It appears we have received a reprieve from Senate Bill 16. However, there is no question that education funding will continue to be a hot topic in Springfield in the coming months. District 210 will actively participate in those discussions both locally and in Springfield, as it is essential that the policy makers hear from high-achieving, low-spending school districts. Lincoln-Way District 210 will continue to be part of the process.

Thank you for reading this eNewsletter. Our goal is to offer timely, accurate information about your schools in a quick, easy-to-read format, in a financially viable way.

Dr. R. Scott Tingley
Superintendent
Lincoln-Way High School District 210
