Board Update 8/10/20

English|Español

Discussion Items

Agenda Item 6.0

Discussion of Appointment of Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) Authorized Agent – 6.01
Strategic Direction (SD) 4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity
As an IMRF employer, CCSD59 is required to appoint an IMRF Authorized Agent. According to the Illinois Pension code (40 ILCS 5/7-135), an IMRF Authorized Agent files payroll reports, pays contributions, files benefit applications for members, and acts as the agent of the governing body in IMRF matters. 

CCSD59 Assistant Superintendent of Business Services/CSBO Ron O’Connor was recommended to the board to serve as the IMRF Authorized Agent.

Discussion of Permission to Bid for Vestibule Project – 6.02
SD 4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity

The board discussed security improvements budgeted for this year for vestibules at Brentwood, Clearmont, and Juliette Low to direct visitors to check into the main office prior to accessing the rest of the building. The work falls under the capital improvement plan.

As improvements require a public bid if construction exceeds $50,000, the board will vote on approval of the public bid for this project work at the board meeting on September 14, 2020.


Action Items 

Agenda Item 8.0

Adoption of Budget: Fiscal Year 2020-21 – 8.01
SD 4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity
CCSD59’s 2020-21 budget has been on public display since July 1, 2020, meeting the thirty day requirement of the state. 

The board approved the fiscal year of the district to begin on July 1, 2020, and end on June 30, 2021, and adopted the budget for the 2020-21 fiscal year. A copy of the budget will be sent to the office of the Illinois State Board of Education and copies of associated documentation can be seen in the links below.

  • Revenue and Expense Report – 8.01a
  • State Budget Form 50-36 – 8.01b

Adoption of E-Learning Plan – 8.02
SD 1: Student Growth – Educating the Whole Child
Section 10‐20.56 of the Illinois School Code [105 ILCS 5/10‐20.56] requires that school boards hold a public hearing before the adoption or renewal of an e‐learning program. At the August 3, 2020, board meeting, a public hearing was held for public comments and/or requests for consideration regarding the district’s e-learning plan.

Approved e-learning plans allow districts to utilize “e‐learning days” in lieu of emergency days. The number of e‐learning days may not exceed the number of emergency days in the approved school calendar. 

With the public hearing portion now complete, the district’s e‐learning program will be verified by North Cook Intermediate Service Center (NCISC). Prior to implementation, NCISC will verify that the e‐learning proposal will ensure access for all students; ensure that the specific needs of all students are met, including special education students and English learners; ensure that all mandates are still met using the e‐learning program adopted, and contain provisions designed to reasonably and practicably accomplish the additional elements in the E-Learning Program Verification Form

The board approved the adoption of the district’s proposed E-Learning Plan.

Approval of 2020-21 Return to School Plan & COVID-19 Board Policy – 8.03
SD 1: Student Growth – Educating the Whole Child & SD 2: Communications and Community Relations
The board approved the district’s 2020-21 Return to School Plan, which can be viewed here

Highlights of the plan updates include:

  • All students will start the year assigned to their typical in-person teacher.
    • This is a change from the previous plan that had students who registered for the Remote Academy starting the year with their Remote Academy teacher. All students will start remote, but with their in-person assigned teacher.
  • Class rosters and teacher assignments were finalized and posted in Skyward for families to access on August 11, at 9:00 a.m.
  • The period of remote learning is extended through at least October 30, 2020. The timeline for potentially transitioning back to in-person learning will be evaluated and updated in October.
    • The previous approach was to re-evaluate the environment following Labor Day on September 8 and determine if remote learning would continue or in-person learning would potentially start in September.
