D203 Oppose Resolution

The District 203 board unanimously voted to oppose a resolution that would support arming faculty and staff in schools. Dozens of of community members came out in opposition of the resolution, which had been proposed by down state districts to the Illinois Association of School Board’s 2018 Resolutions Committee for consideration. Among them were representatives from the Naperville Unit Education Association, Moms Demand Action, and two eighth grade students in the district. The board commended the community’s involvement and voicing their concerns. Those comments will be incorporated in a statement district staff is currently writing up for why they oppose the resolution, to be presented at the IASB delegate assembly in November, where IASB will decide whether to approve or deny the resolution.
