School Board Meeting Time Changes
Superintendent's Department
News Photo

During an August board meeting, the Libertyville District 70 School Board voted to change the start time of its regular monthly board meetings to 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of the month. The Board also voted to discontinue the practice of engaging in a Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting on the same evening immediately prior to each regularly scheduled board of education meeting. COW meetings are open to the public and provide the school board with an opportunity to discuss, but not act upon, matters pertaining to the district. 

 

In the spirit of continuous improvement and transparency, the District 70 School Board will now hold conversations that have historically occurred in the COW meeting during regular board meetings.  

 

Information on the District 70 website has been revised to reflect this change.

Our District 70 buses are on the road. Please obey the law. 

In Illinois, all lanes of traffic in both directions must stop when a school bus is stopped to pick up or drop off kids while traveling along a two-lane road. This also applies to one-way streets no matter how many lanes of traffic.

On a four-lane road with at least two lanes moving in the opposite direction, only motorists going in the same direction as the bus are required to stop
