Plainfield central is unranked. Scores are about the same as Joliet West.

So the questions are: "What does #1 do that's better than HPHS? How can HPHS improve? What'sRead More holding us back?" Compare and contrast.

The 'quality adjustment' to the AP results appear to be the only basis as to why DHS wasn't rankedRead More above Stevenson - as the # 1 truly 'public' [taking all comers - not getting to pick and choose its student body - like the academies and/or magnets] in the State of Illinois. OK, so, DHS will have to 'try harder.' As for Highland-Park, what's the story over there; and the same goes for New Trier? My, how the once mighty have fallen. Go Big Red!

"Virtual walls"? Geezus... GPS spoofing is but one way around the geofence. The otherRead More is simply walking up to someone and saying "HEY *(&*(^^#&*(Y($*() !!!!!" Or use a different app created with a bogus email account... *sigh*. Sticks and stones people... sticks and stones... Walk it off and move on...

Yes, the first priority of any school should be safety. If it is recommended to stay inside thenRead More our kids should be home. Doctors report frost bite can occur very quickly.

All Chicago Public Schools will now be closed Monday as well.

Morning laugh: "Burkhart took issue with making Columbus Day a student attendance day. "WeRead More are losing the ability to celebrate our culture," he said."

What is laughable is the 2.52% increase. Don't they know most people have taken a decrease inRead More pay...some as much as a 100% decrease!! And the cost of health insurance further decreases all resident's ability to pay these continuously rising district increases. Something has to change and I think it might be the board members.
