411: October 15 Board Meeting

Four Items from One School Board Meeting in One Minute!

1.  School Board members and staff wore pink shirts to honor the district’s Together on Tuesdays breast cancer awareness campaign, which is an early kick-off to the 2014 D300 Relay For Life (April 4-5 at Dundee-Crown High School).  The final two Tuesdays for this all-staff campaign will be Oct. 22 and Oct. 29.  Photos from throughout the district so far this month can be seen here.
 
2.  Students in Director Mona Jethmalani’s Bella Voce choral group from Dundee Middle School wowed the audience during the secondary showcase.  (They even wore pink ribbons to join the Together on Tuesdays campaign!)  Student names and more info about the acclaimed Bella Voce can be found here.  To watch the Board meeting performance, click here, then choose the October 15, 2013, Board meeting, click Watch Video, and select agenda item #6.1.
 
3.  President Michele Meyer of DESA (the district union of paraeducators) urged all D300 schools to actively participate in DESA’s upcoming collection of supplies to send overseas to American servicemen and women.  This collection has been very successful in past years and is always greatly appreciated by the troops.
 
4.  The Board heard a report from Chief Financial Officer Susan Harkin that the district was able to maintain its good credit rating with the credit agencies (Moody’s, and Standard & Poor’s) despite their concerns about Illinois’ troubled finances.   To watch this discussion, choose agenda item #6.3 from the October 15 video link.
