The board is scheduled to meet in executive session -- again -- on Tuesday, February 20, at 8 pm. (Source: http://www.boarddocs.com/il/hccsdil/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=AW2RS46EA04F) The only substantive item on the Agenda is a Personnel Discussion.

Since no 6 day notice has been posted, we do not believe the BOE will be voting to approve any new hires at this meeting. But since there haven't been any more series of closely held meetings, perhaps this means that all the BOE has left to do is hammer out a new contract for the incoming Superintendent.
We hope the BOE has something to publicly announce by its next regularly scheduled meeting, which per the online calendar will take place on Monday, February 26. (Source: Board Meeting Calendar). By our count, to do so will require the BOE to post the 6 day announcement no later than Tuesday night, February 20. (Source: 5 ILCS 120/7.3(b))
We will check the district website again on February 20 and notify our readers of any announcement. Until then, stay tuned!
