Forum with Dr. Wiegand to discuss the November referendum

The PTA Council is hosting a forum to go over the November 4th $150 million tax referendum. The forum is open to the public. Central is located at 610 West University Avenue (you may have to park on the street). The library is upstairs and one of the few rooms that has AC. 🙂


From Anna Simon:

Our first meeting will be Thursday, September 4 at Central HS in the library. We will have our business meeting from 7 pm until 7:30 pm followed by our speakers. We will be having a forum with Dr. Wiegand and others concerning the upcoming referendum.

    This is an opportunity to ask very well defined questions and maybe pass out info sheets showing the cost differentials of plan b, I-74, and a third scenario.

    I’ve got to get this off my chest. Put it in the pie-in-the-sky category. Or perhaps Plan Q.

    We already have a school (Uni) that represents a collaboration between the three C-U high schools and the U of I. Why can we not have a vocational/technical high school that represents a collaboration between Champaign, Urbana, and Parkland?

    These programs take up a lot of space and require expensive and current equipment, and are certainly lacking at Central and Centennial (don’t know about Urbana). Why can’t they be centralized?

    I offer as a model the award-winning joint vocational school from my home county in Ohio.

    In fact I was quite surprised that nothing similar existed here. Students in these programs attend the vocational school for their junior and senior years (thus relieving overcrowding, ahem!) but participate in extra-curriculars at their home high school.

    WHY NOT?

    Good to read alternatives not mentioned so far. Actually what you are doing is the job of any consultant.

    One of the ideas we are already discussing is a program similar to CAPS ( which we could house at the old Central.
