The District 203 school board recently gave an update on plans to put cell towers near district schools.
Superintendent Dan Bridges announced at the recent Board of Education meeting, that the proposal to build cellular towers at Kennedy and Lincoln Junior High has been dropped because the vendor, AT&T, is no longer interested.
“There is no longer any proposal before the board for your consideration. Should a new proposal come before us, we’ll continue to evaluate what’s brought forward to us,” said Dan Bridges, Superintendent.
Over the summer, residents were concerned about the plan as they were worried about potential health risks to students.
After more than nine years – the tax dispute between the district and the City of Warrenville has come to an end, after board members voted unanimously to approve a settlement.
District 203 filed suit in 2005 claiming that funds from a Cantera Taxing District near I-88 and Winfield Road, which was formed to improve infrastructure and fund other improvements, were improperly diverted to Warrenville Park District and other taxing bodies.
Officials declined to comment further on the litigation.
Also announced – Naperville North and Washington Junior High were chosen by the Robert Crown Center to participate in an anti-heroin education pilot program this year.
Because materials and curriculum will be provided by Robert Crown through funding from DuPage County, the program will be free to students.
It will be reviewed at the end of the year and could be expanded to more schools.
The district also announced the composite class of 2014 ACT score of 25.1. That’s an improvement from 24.8 in 2013.
