Board Update (Committee of the Whole): 10/23/2023
Agenda Item 5.0
Approval of Resolution Authorizing SRO Agreement – 5.02
At the board meeting on October 9, 2023, the board authorized the district to develop intergovernmental agreements (IGA) with Des Plaines, Elk Grove Village, and Mount Prospect to assign a school resource officer (SRO) to each junior high school. Once the agreements are approved, the district will work with each municipality to implement an SRO program at each junior high.
The IGA with Elk Grove Village is complete, and the board approved the agreement. The IGA was also approved by the Elk Grove Village Board at their meeting on October 24. With the IGA now approved by both CCSD59 and Elk Grove Village, an SRO will be assigned to Grove Junior High with a projected start date of Monday, October 30.
The district will continue to work with Des Plaines and Mount Prospect to complete agreements for an SRO to be assigned at Friendship and Holmes Junior High. The board will take action on the agreements with Des Plaines and Mount Prospect at a future board meeting once the agreements with each municipality are completed.
Agenda Item 7.0
Wold Presentation – 7.01
The board continued discussions regarding possible actions to address physical conditions, capacity, and enrollment concerns at Brentwood Elementary. Wold Architects presented a variety of options for consideration based on their recent educational alignment study findings. The board discussed the potential benefits and challenges of each option, and considered factors such as cost, impact to the learning environment, and potential effects on other schools in the district.
The board will continue discussions and potentially take action to authorize Wold Architects and the district to begin drafting a more detailed plan and construction timeline at the board meeting on November 13, 2023.
