Charter Commission Accepting Public Comments Via E-mail
Posted on 04/01/2015
We want to thank all of you who took time to attend the Illinois State Charter School Commission Public Hearing yesterday evening. It was wonderful to listen to so many passionate testimonials from staff and parents about what makes Waukegan Public Schools great. Unfortunately, not everyone had an opportunity to speak during public comment, due to time constraints. There is still an opportunity, however, to share your thoughts with the Illinois State Charter School Commission. The Commission will accept written testimonials via email until April 8. Public comments can be submitted to state.charter.commission@illinois.gov.

I am writing you today to ask you to stand with the District in opposition to LEARN’s proposal.  READ MORE...
