This has been going on for years. I live in one of the few houses in New Lenox that is in this district, there have been multiple attempts over the years to get out of this district by a number of home owners. It is a really BAD school. I sent my children to St. Jude as did most of my neighbors and some of them are not even Catholic.

I think there are 80-100 houses in New Lenox that are in district 81 for grade school and 210 for high school. When we built our house we were told that Union school would be closing and we would then be in then be in the New Lenox district. It never happened. The taxes we pay are even a little higher rate than what is paid by those with houses in the New Lenox district. I used to compare tax bills with a neighbor with almost the same house 2 doors away but they have moved. District 81 has always been a cash cow for somebody
