The cadets performed choral, guitar, clarinet, and violin versions of several Christmastime favorites. The Fisher House staff stated that this was the first time any group had visited the facility to perform, and those family members who attended expressed great appreciation.
The Board of Education met last night at Lincoln-Way East for its monthly meeting, which included an update on the district's strategic plan. This meeting discussed the progress made by all goal areas in the strategic plan (finance, curriculum, buildings & grounds, human resources, public relations, and technology) which is currently in its final year. The presentation can be viewed on BoardDocs. In addition to the strategic plan, the Board of Education approved the 2021 property tax levy. The operating levy is 3.54% more than the previous year. The total overall levy – which includes bond and interest payments – will be higher because of outstanding capital bonds, however the Board is investigating options to limit the increase to taxpayers.
