Palatine School District 15 board members are hosting their first Community Communication Forum of the school year tonight.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday and will be held at the Joseph M. Kiszka Educational Service Center, 580 N. 1st Bank Drive, Palatine.
At the forum, officials are expected to take questions from the community on the district’s annual board goals, its implementation of the new Common Core Standards, and its second semester launch of weekly release time that will provide teachers with professional development opportunities.
Last week, an arbitrator ruled that the early release would begin in January, and take place on Friday afternoon. Parents are hoping for more specifics on the issue at the meeting.
The Board’s Community Communication Forums are designed to create additional opportunities for community members to share feedback with, and ask questions of, Board members and the administration on a variety of topics. Board members who are participating in the forums cannot share their personal opinions, nor can they take action on issues discussed at the forums unless the whole Board does so at a regular Board meeting.
