President’s Report
Board President Sonali Patil gave a brief overview of the 2018 IASB Joint Annual Conference (Triple I) in Chicago. This was the 86th meeting of the Illinois Association of School Boards, Illinois Association of School Administrators and Illinois Association of School Business Officials.  The District’s board members, superintendents and several administrators and staff attended the event, which took place on November 16, 17 and 18. Ms. Patil said that District representatives attended different sessions and shared information with each other. She spoke about the benefits of attending the conference. It is the only time that district representatives have an opportunity to learn what other districts are doing across Illinois.

Ms. Patil also thanked Julie Simpson for her two years of service on District 73’s Board of Education. Ms. Simpson will resign in early December when she officially becomes the County Board member for District 18. Ms. Simpson thanked everyone and said she learned a lot while serving on the board.
