District 205 School Board Will Look at Final 2012-'13 Enrollment Numbers

The agenda also includes possible approval of tens of thousands of dollars in cash and in-kind donations to district schools.

Elmhurst Unit District 205 Board will hold its regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the , 162 S. York St. The public meeting will be preceded by a closed session to discuss employment of an employee and probable or imminent litigation.

The meeting will open with public comments. Members of the community are invited to speak for up to three minutes on any topic.

Three items are up for discussion under superintendent's communication:

  • District 205 Board committee structure
  • District enrollment figures and how they compare with projections
  • District 205's Annual Report to the Community, a pamphlet that will be sent to residents and includes information on educational initiatives, academic indicators and awards, as well as a message from the superintendent and board president, and a financial overview

The board will then hear reports from its four committees: Board Improvement and Policy, Curriculum and Instruction, Finance and Operations, and Performance Management.

The superintendent's consent agenda will include approval of bid results for after-hours security, and approval of donations to Conrad Fischer and Hawthorne Elementary, and Churchville Middle School.

The Fischer PTA donated $2,000 for the purchase of iPads, and an anonymous donor contributed $3,000 to Fischer, which will be matched by the donor's employer, for a total of $6,000 to be used at the discretion of Principal Jane Bailey.

Hawthorne received three in-kind donations for creation of an outdoor classroom. The donations are from Steinhebel Landscaping ($25,000), Maher Lumber ($980) and Peter Troost Monument Co. ($4,300 for granite benches).

Churchville's ongoing development of an outdoor classroom, now in its third phase, will receive a boost from a $3,000 grant from the DuPage Community Foundation for a split-rail fence barrier along the York Road property border.

Board members will then review their upcoming meetings and share any other communications.
