An anonymous blog is run dealing with neighboring elementary and middle school Pleasantdale School District 107. The blog can be found at:
Not only does it appear that D107's board of education has its share of problems, but they too are going to have a new superintendent soon, since their current one has just announced his impending retirement. We encourage you to read some of the posts on just how bad the administrative situation got in D107 before a detailed survey was finally commissioned and an outside auditor was hired to figure out if representations made by the superintendent regarding Common Core alignment were true. You will be shocked by what you read.
Closer to home, Hinsdale High School District 86 now has a blog that is being run by a community member. This brand new blog can be found at:
According to the author's first post,
"This is my first blog in what will be a running commentary about the Hinsdale High School District 86 Board of Education. I will share my observations about their regular meetings, business items that are currently or soon will be before the Board of Education, and hopefully allow the reader to better track issues important to them during BOE proceedings. Today I will address what I see as major flaws in the philosophy and conduct of the current Board. In future blogs we will look more closely at specific decisions."
We encourage you to begin following this blog because many of your children currently, or in the future will, attend Hinsdale Central High School, and the actions of the D86 board of education today may significantly impact your children's education tomorrow.
Now more than ever, it is critical that parents, community members and all taxpayers of our public school districts remain vigilant, informed and active. The onus remains on all of us to demand transparency and accountability in all things that impact our children.
