Organizational Meeting Tonight For Streator Parents Upset At Their School Board

Posted by wlpo on March 25, 2014

While the protest scene in Ottawa has quieted down, a group opposing school board decisions in Streator are trying to ramp up support.

Organizers of the group “Streator District 44 Parents & Community Unite” are having an informational meeting tonight a 6 inside the Silver Fox banquet hall in Streator. The group sprung up after the Streator Elementary School Board voted to cut four teachers while giving contract extensions and raises to administrators. The group’s page on Facebook has over 700 “likes”.

A few people in the group have picketed outside the Streator Elementary administration building. They’re also planning to circulate petitions asking for a “no-confidence” vote against Superintendent Matt Wilkinson.
