have you recieved your property taxes look at the portion that states how much is going to school taxes its the biggest chunk People on this site are upset over the city mishandling of money but here people steal our tax money by sending children that do not even reside in our area the district 218 and 130 state we have people working or looking into it sound familar?How many times do see kids being dropped off with chicago city stickers or your neighbors have relatives using their addresses or that moved away or kids at bus stops. It amazes me that the people in this communty do not demand that school districts stop aiding and abeting these theives How many people do they have working what are their actual hours actually looking into it how many cases do they do in a day.What ever they call there team or person looking into its is a farce. I have called in the past to report this theft but the response was well we are going to let them finish here they have only one more year or they have two more years I realized later they were sport jocks or were high academically so to bring up the schools ever failing scores then to boot to see they were awarded scholarships I was happy for them then thought that could have gone to someone that actually lived in the district. This abuse of tax dollars must have accountability 60% of your taxes went to the school districts The money that goes to the city is less than half of what the schools get anywhere between 29 and 28 % I ask myself and they get away with that; no one says nothing are you scared of the teacher still?

The schools are trying their best to weed out these parasites but somehow allot of these people have legit addresses and utility bills which show their address as in Blue Island. How does the district go about trying to see who's the phony & who's real? Then there are law suits that are threatened by those that say racial bias is being used against them & their kids for the purpose keeping Blue Island schools mostly Hispanic. This has become a difficult and messy affair. The teachers and their assistants can only do so much.

The Mayor has no control over the District. The District is a separate entity with a life of it's own. The Mayor can suggest & ask but he can not demand or order the District to change policy. The District is controlled by the State. And in some ways by Steve Erkel ...OOOPS I mean Todd Strogger. So let's place the blame of those responsible...not the ones we liked too blame. OK?

onething not mentioned here is that the local school board is an entity that is voted in by the community people vote them in and have no knowlrge of what is going on behind closed doors. when was the last time anyone you know had attended a meeting how many of you know of what is decided for the school year the food served, or any other inklings yes it is a seperate enity from the city BUT the community does have some input have any ever observed the legal ads they place in the papers for special meetings and as to go to to 218 building easier said than done apparently he has not tried they cover each other backs the city is small chump change compared to what the schoiol district does

"make me laugh" I've been to a few. And yes you are correct. The school board meetings are a study in total futility. Those who sit on the Board try to do the right thing but there is a hidden agenda by some of the professionals who work not as teachers, but as the administrators, that one can not put a finger on. It is an almost unspoken thing, like taboo to discuss anything about the problems with outsiders attending BI schools. Very odd. Also the labor relations between these same people and the teachers, bus drivers, school aids is so strained, you can taste it. Who is calling the shots in BI's schools. Not the principals, that's for sure. Somebody else(maybe a single person) is pulling the strings. It's not the new Superintendent either. Maybe a bureaucrat?

To clarify to those who are a bit dense in comprehending what I posted in my reply to "Make me laugh". When I say "bureaucrat" ...I don't mean "Politician".
The bureaucrat or bureaucrats are those who work in the Administration of the School Board and /or District. These are the unseen & unknown people who really are the power behind the scenes. They can make or break a Principal or a teacher or any employee of the system. They are undisputed in their power and are arrogant enough to know that they can not be made to tow the line when it comes to policy.

Kerr failed to make adequetly year progress Lincoln failed paul revere failed paul revere primary failed-whitter failed veterans passed but barely Eisenhower continues the trend failed 5yrs and going strong richard failed shepard failed. I thought you look at the schools andthat also effect your property values that want people want to mone here. How compliant tax payers are to accept this for our children do you think thats why people are leaving in droves so their children can have a better ed. In chicago they clean house this is not acceptable. The school is a completely different enviroment are children are entrusted to these adults for enrichment for education these scores speak volumes

The failing scores for Blue Island schools have not been a secret.

The large number of students who are not living with a birth parent; is also not a secret.
Those children are allowed to attend the school in the area where they reside and/or can attend their previous school as part of the homeless act.

Again who verifys this act does not entile them to be free of the school verifying their status of living or rather to follow up to verify whether they are commoting fraud what are the numbers of those claiming this status. If they use a relative address in a apt. building then they violating the contract with the landlord and with the city under how many people can live in a 1 or 2 bedroom apt. and as for not living with a birth parent request to see tax forms to see who is claiming the child as a dependent or in some school districts they require legal parental gaurdianship papers as proof again agin the emphasis on proof, documentation and verification by the the district. Once the enforcement of verification by the district is administered the abuse will stop. I failed to mention That I knew of someone that would do this they would make surprise visits thruout the school year of the supposed homeless student and other means of verifing their actual status. It is a lame excuse, to abuse our tax dollars that permits and is aided by the district in crossing their arms and state the homeless act nothing in the act does noe exempt them from the district making periodic checks or forgoes them of the district verifing. After all does not the school social workers make well home checks or other district personnel,to check on their well being
