notice regarding board Meetings

Governor Pritzker recently extended the disaster declaration related to the COVID-19 pandemic for all Illinois counties to February 7, 2021. Based on the current public health concerns, the Board Presidents of Lake Forest School District 67 and Lake Forest School District 115, as heads of the public body, have determined that it is neither practical nor prudent to hold in-person meetings of the Boards of Education. Board meetings will be remote and comply with the procedures set forth in Public Act 101-640 that Governor Pritzker signed on January 8, 2021.

Individuals who wish to make a public comment at a virtual meeting should notify Chief Technology Officer, Jordan Salus, at jsalus@lfschools.net no later than 12:00 p.m. noon on the day of the meeting. During the afternoon of the day of the Board meeting, Mr. Salus will be in contact with those individuals regarding instructions on how to call in to make public comment.  If comments are submitted by community members in writing only, they will be added to the meeting record but will not be read aloud by a representative of the District at the meeting. Community members may read their own written comments once registered with Mr. Salus. It is not required, however, that community members submit their comments in writing.

A link to the live stream of virtual Board of Education meetings will be available on the District 115 Board of Education website approximately two hours prior to the start of each meeting.
