At the school board's most recent meeting, the board approved a resolution to fill several positions in the district. Congratulations to BFT members Katie Hoerner, East's new social studies department chair; Lee Meyer, West's new PE, health, and drivers education department chair; and Jenny Hotze-Wilton, East's new world language department chair!
The board also approved the hiring of a new assistant principal on the East campus.
In other business, the board adopted a new textbook for the forensics classes, approved next year's calendar, and approved Tom Shimmer as next year's opening day keynote speaker, who will conduct what will surely be a riveting discussion on assessments.
Finally, BFT's President Cyndi Oberle-Dahm addressed the board to garner support for House Bill 3428, which would mandate that all Illinois state schools award college credit for any student who scores a three or higher on an advanced placement exam.
