Board members disagree over what criteria should prompt reopening in D161

Smith, during a special meeting of the board of education held Monday, Nov. 30, asked the board to consider using information available from the Illinois State Board of Education and the Cook County Department of Public Health to guide them in choosing what indicators would enable District 161’s reopening to its general student population.
