District 203 Speaks Out

At last night’s District 203 Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Dan Bridges addressed some recent discussion in the community about the pressures students face. Bridges reminded residents of many resources for parents and students that are available through the district’s website. And urged individuals who are struggling, or those who may know of someone who is struggling, to seek help.

Lacrosse Sanctioned in 204

Lacrosse is now officially a sanctioned extracurricular sport for District 204. Approved at last night’s board meeting, this means that 204’s lacrosse teams will be able to compete against other official teams in the IHSA’s state series, like those of District 203. Due to budget constraints, the sport, which will cost over $200,000 during its first year, will be paid for entirely by parents. Though the district has promised to revisit this funding model in two years in hopes of providing financial support.
