IL-FPS hosts candidate forum for Waukegan school board

School board elections are this coming Tuesday April 6th around the state (except Chicago!) IL Families for Public Schools and the Partnership for Equity and Education Rights hosted a virtual candidate forum on April 1, 2021 for Waukegan District 60 moderated by Kim Holmes, IL-FPS board member and former Waukegan school board member, and with guest speaker State Representative Rita Mayfield.

You can watch the full recording of the forum here. It covered a wide-range of topics from the district's response last spring to the start of the pandemic, the role of SROs in schools, how the district should best tackle learning loss in the fall, the district's relationship to families and community members, and whether high-stakes testing should be administered this year. Thank you to all the candidates who participated!
