The "Choice" RFP is up

I have not yet had a chance to read it (working late tonight). More to follow later.

The High School dilemma: weighing the options

Giving out a shout out to Holly Nelson and her website about the study of what to do with Central. Especially take a look at the “booklet” she has created – very succinct yet also very informative:

I have read bits and pieces of the source document and research as it has accumulated, but have not taken it all in at one reading session, yet. Holly has done a great job exploring the topic and the options from many different angles and has presented as clear and as unbiased a picture as possible.

Now the task is ours to digest this information and figure out what we really want. Sooner or later, Unit 4 is going to send a PE firm asking similar questions, and then followed by a referrendum in which we all get to make a binary choice. The more we cogitate on this now, the better informed we will be and the more fruitful discussion we can have.

PS – Holly is presenting at the June 11th Board meeting.

Services planned for Gene Logas

re: http://www.champaignschools.org/news/news_view.php?action=view&news_type=press_release&id_news=447

 

Visitation for Gene Logas will be on Friday, June 8th from 4:00-7:00 at First Baptist Church of Champaign, 1602 S. Prospect Avenue, Savoy.

There will be a second visitation on Sunday, June 10th at 12:00 p.m. at Irwin Funeral Home, 3960 Maryville Road, Granite City, IL 62040.

Funeral services will be held on Sunday, June 10th at 3:00 p.m. at Irwin Funeral Home in Granite City, IL 62040.

 

Nina Logas does not family nearby (her sister will be staying with Nina for an indefinite period of time); those of who live near Nina are trying to figure out how best to do some long-term TLC on Nina. Any ideas? Our goal is to surround her and embrace her. I asked if I could stop by every couple of days just to check on her, and Nina said she would like that.
