District 203

Last night the District 203 Board of Education discussed the 2018 Resolutions Committee Report. Board member Terry Fielden spoke about his disagreement with a newly proposed Student Safety and Protection Plan resolution. It proposes that faculty and staff who have gone through background checks, appropriate training courses, and have a current Illinois concealed carry license, can be active and armed. According to Fielden, districts down state brought about the resolution due to having less funding for Student Resource Officers in their schools. The rest of the board agreed to discuss the resolution further, before it goes before the IASB’s Annual Delegate Assembly in November.

Also of note at the meeting, Fielden announced he won’t be seeking a fourth term as a board member after his term ends this November. Fielden has served on the board since 2007 and hopes another will step into the role honoring 203’s underlying community values.

This morning students met with prospective mentors looking to help out the budding businesses from the ground floor, and working all the way up to pitch night in May. Last year, groups from the class earned investments as high as $13,000.
