Community Participation

In a new procedure for community participation, community members submit their name and connection to the district in an online form, which opens before the start of the Board of Education meeting. Then, they pose their comments and questions virtually.

Nanette Ross-Meridith, teacher and president of the Glenview Education Association, shared her gratitude for the support of teachers. She also expressed the hope for continued respect of the teachers for their dedicated work with students.


The Board approved the consent agenda, which included a personnel report, payroll and vendor warrants and staffing allocations. The Board also approved resolutions for honorable dismissal and reduction of hours of teachers and elimination of network manager position and reduction in force.
