Change needed, residents tell District 161 school board

Flossmoor School District 161 Superintendent Craig Doster, on a leave of absence for the last two weeks, was not present at Tuesday’s Board of Education committee meeting.

Frances LaBella, the district’s assistant superintendent for business, has been coordinating operations since the start of Doster’s leave, and she represented District 161’s administration at the board table.

About 50 residents were in the audience Tuesday. It was the first board meeting since Doster began his leave on Oct. 18, one day after the school board received a letter, reportedly signed by 400 residents . . .
