Quick Notes from the Board Meeting

At the Board of Education meeting held on Thursday, July 17, 2014, the board:

  • Heard a report about the Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered to students. It was reported that the AP program has steadily grown over the past several years, with 74% of the students who take the AP exams scoring a 3 or higher, qualifying for college credit. Lincoln-Way offers 26 different AP exams per school across 7 different departments, ranging from art and music to math and world language. This year over 1,200 students district-wide took nearly 2,200 AP exams, which means several students took as many as 3 to 5 exams each.

  • Approved the proposed 2014-2015 Lincoln-Way Area Special Education District 843 budget. Each of the 843 Special Education Cooperative member districts must approve the proposed budget, prior to it being made available for public inspection.

  • Approved notice of a public hearing for the proposed 2014-2015 Lincoln-Way High School District 210 budget. The hearing will be on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:00 p.m. at the district office located at Lincoln-Way Central High School.

  • Heard Dr. R. Scott Tingley, Superintendent, report that the district will begin the 2014-2015 fiscal year with positive fund balances and will continue its commitment to fiscal responsibility.
