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...

Guess Steve Jobs didn't envision this? Awesome tool being abused by idiots to cause pain andRead More suffering? We have become a mean, shallow, cruel society willing to dessimate anyone for self gratification.

Welcome, Dr. Heinz. You may have read over the past few years that D64 likes to spend money. Well,Read More that's changing. Grab what you can before you sign your contract. D64 tends to lock those things in before consulting with taxpayers. From then on, be ready for challenges from a newly-attentive school board, and the taxpayers who elect them. You can educate our children just fine without increasing budgets every single year. Good luck!

Please join the D64 Board in including as many voices as possible in our search for the best personRead More for the job. If not tonight, then please complete the online survey that is posted at the D64 website: www.d64.org

Dr. Paterno, thank you but I just now saw this article and of course it is days past the event. IRead More assume parents of current students got advance notices via their children...what about us taxpayers who are subsidizing the schools? I will complete the online survey, but have little hope my voice will be heard against those who have an incentive to buy the most expensive Cadillac available. The school board needs to start looking after the taxpayers automatically because it is (supposedly) a big part of your job.

Insanity. Ridiculous contract & perks. A squirrel could produce the same results.
Park Ridge Taxpayer October 17, 2013 at 01:38 pm
Why are we allowing this kind of salary increase? It only fuels more tax increases where theRead More taxpayers themselves mostly make the same salaries, only to have more and more of the money taken away by all levels of government. Thanks for nothing, D-207 school board!

It's not like there's nobody alive today that lived through those years were people dressedRead More conservatively for school.
Pam DeFiglio (Editor) September 30, 2013 at 09:48 pm
Of course, Mike Touhy! Just joking around a bit.

Don't let the door hit your rear end on the way out. It was gracious of the school board presidentRead More to praise Dr. Bender, because he could have added that the outgoing superintendent did everything he could to increase the D64 budget to the maximum allowable level, year after year. Will the board set as a criteria for the next superintendent a commitment to zero budget increases going forward? Or at least perhaps set the expectation that taxpayers have had enough increases?
