The board gathered recently in regular session for their October meeting. Superintendent Dr. Rob Underwood reports that the year-long project to repair the leaking stucco areas and roof sections of the high school and middle school is finished. Covid-relief money paid for most of those fixes. Additional Covid dollars will now be used to pay for another major upgrade in the district.
Underwood says, "We're really excited the board was able to make good use of those ESSR-Covid Relief funds that will help to improve the overall air quality and the learning environment for our staff and students."
The project will also include new ceiling grids and new LED lights down the corridors in the original 1968 portion of ILHS. 

Superintendent Underwood says ESSR 2 Covid Funds will pay for approximately  $770,000 of the estimated $1.3 million dollar project. The district will pay for the rest. The project will begin at the conclusion of this school year.  
The next IL Board of Education meeting is set for Monday, November 21st at 6:30 pm.
