Lengthy discussion at this week’s board meeting leads board to seek clarification of protocols from superintendent.
The agenda for Wednesday’s Pleasantdale School District 107 Board of Education meeting at the district’s administrative center called for 10 minutes of discussion on residency protocols.

The topic had dominated the discussion at the board's Aug. 17 meeting and was scheduled for a vote Wednesday night.

But board members Karen O’Halloran and Mark …

The board discussed at Wednesday night's meeting how often families should be required to validate residency.
The District 107 school board Wednesday night took a look at the question of how often the board should require families to validate residency. After discussing the issue, the board decided not to change its policy of validating residency at the time of enrollment and surveying families with affadavits on file every year. Superintendent Mark Fredisdorf said there are currently eight families attending school in the district that do not have a mortgage or lease, but do have an affadavit stating that they are living with someone who resides in the district. "Should we have a policy in place that says at its sole discretion the district is allowed to request additional documentation within seven days?" Fredisdorf asked. The board considered …
