Board members participate in self-evaluation
The Kaneland School Board members, Superintendent Charlie McCormick and associate Superintendent Jeff Schuler participated in a self-evaluation on Monday, facilitated by a representative of the Illinois Association of School Boards.

The purpose of the session was to help board members work more effectively with each other on behalf of the community, School Board President Lisa Wiet said.

The meeting took place in a session closed to the public. The Illinois Open Meetings Act allows the board to meet in closed session for the purpose of self-evaluation when it meets with a representative of its statewide association.

Board approves additional funding for Harter Road campus
The Kaneland School Board on Monday signed off on an additional $99,754 for the Harter Road Middle School construction, to shore up poor soils found under Harter Road at the entrance to the school.

A portion of the money, $30,000, is covered by an unsuitable soils allowance, and $5,000 will be taken from a contingency allowance. The remaining $64,754 was approved through a change order by the board.
