Information for District 97's Virtual Board of Education Meeting on May 26

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Illinois is under a stay-at-home order through the end of May. Additionally, Gov. JB Pritzker has issued an executive order that waives a portion of the Open Meetings Act that requires a quorum of members of a public body be physically present at a meeting location.

In order to protect the health and safety of our board of education, staff, and community members, District 97 has decided to hold its May 26 board meeting virtually, using Zoom. The public may join this meeting using the following link and dial-in information:
