District 161 hires firm to look for illegally enrolled students

Flossmoor School District 161 is looking for residency cheats.

That means school officials will take a second look at the students to make sure they truly live within District 161’s boundaries.

Board of education members Tuesday approved a contract with National Investigations, Inc., which will look into whether some students who live outside the district are illegally enrolled in the schools . . .
