Board Briefs: Votes Coming on Final Teacher's Contract Document, RTI Coordinator

Here's a look at items that are expected to be on the Grayslake District 46 Board agenda in March.

The Grayslake District 46 Board hopes to approve the finalized 2012-14 teacher's contract at its next meeting.

The final document wasn't ready for the board's Feb. 20 meeting.

"It's not finished yet," said Board President Ray Millington. "It should be done by the next meeting."

The board voted unanimously Feb. 6 to approve the tentative agreement between the district and the teacher's union. Board Secretary Sue Facklam noted at that meeting that when the board votes on the final document, the contents will not change.

Curriculum/Response to Intervention Coordinator

Also at the next meeting, the board may vote on whether to hire a coordinator for curriculum and Response to Intervention.

Superintendent Ellen Correll explained that the district needs someone to handle a variety of tasks, including looking at assessments, looking at writing standards in kindergarten through eighth grade, examining social studies and coordinating communication amongst the buildings so there is consistency.

"This is a position I feel very strongly that you need to have in the district," said Correll. "I would ask the board to consider it. It is in our budget."

Of course it was, Sandra- just a joke! How exactly do you know I have absolutely nothing to do with D46? You don't even know who I am. I would wager I know a lot more about how the district works than you do.

I would wager you DO know a lot about the district. You seem to devote your life to it. You yourself have admitted you don't live or work in D46, and you don't work for D46. You have posted so many thousands of times on D46 threads that apparently you've forgotten what you've posted. Understandable. What is not understandable is your deathless obsession. But as long as you stay away from the kids, I guess if you want to spend your life posting about something that doesn't concern you, what the hell. Just please avoid responding to any queries or comments I might make. I actually live here, and pay taxes here. I haven't the slightest interest in your completely irrelevant opinions.

Apparently, life provides him nothing more. It's his "precious". Gullum, Gullum. Gullum.

Sandra, I'm guessing my comments go right over your head. Not all of my posts are opinions; they are facts. I know it's hard for you to tell the difference. Considering how little you really know, I suppose I should expect you not to know there are other ways to work for a district without being an actual employee of the district. Again, I really don't expect you to understand that. Just a word here, Sandy- I'd also wager I'm a hell of a lot safer with kids than you are. Imagine how many kids could be screwed up by your simplistic and close- minded views of the world. Now that's scary.

And what's your excuse, Tony? I'm invested in education. How about you?
