Virtual Board of Education Meeting April 8

The District 15 Board of Education takes its role as elected officials very seriously. In response to COVID-19 pandemic, it will be changing the structure of its April Board meeting to ensure, first and foremost, that all members of the Board, District 15 and community are practicing social distancing and abiding by rules about social gatherings, but while also allowing for District business to continue.


Since Illinois is currently under a Stay-at-Home Order enacted by the Governor due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a recent provision (2020–07: COVID-19 Executive Order No. 5, Section 6) allows a change to the Open Meetings Act where “in-person attendance by a public body” is suspended. As a result, the District 15 leadership has worked with the Board President to hold the Wednesday, April 8 meeting virtually. Out of an abundance of caution, no members of the D15 Board or Office of the Superintendent will be gather in the Board room for the meeting. Instead, Board and Administrative participants will participate through video conferencing software.


A video live stream of the open session beginning at 7 p.m. will be available to watch on our District 15 Facebook page and website, so residents can view the meeting live online per our usual practice. If you'd like to address the Board through public comment, please complete the Google Form prior to the meeting being called to order.


Any submissions we receive will be read aloud at the start of the meeting as long as they comply with Board Policy 2:230 - Public Participation at Board of Education Meetings and Petitions to the Board. Submissions will also be posted in BoardDocs and on the District’s website so that members of the general public are able to view them after the meeting concludes.

We appreciate the public's patience and understanding as we work together to safeguard the health of our community and continue to run Community Consolidated School District 15.

District Meal Delivery Continues Through Duration of School Closure

We know that many of our students are dependent on school meals for nourishment, and in the interest of ensuring this need continues to be met while District 15 schools are closed due to COVID-19, we have established a schedule for food distribution in the community during the duration of the school closure.


District 15 will deliver food to specific locations weekdays through the duration of the closure. Food will not be delivered on Friday, April 10, as the District Office is closed on that date.

Lunch and breakfast for the following day will be distributed together during scheduled delivery times. Meals will be provided to any child (age 18 and under) regardless of financial need. Children do not need to be present for a parent to collect meals for them.


Visit our website for the pick-up locations and times.
