Board Meeting Highlights: August 26, 2019
Board reviews draft school calendar for 2020-21

The Board has reviewed a 2020-2021 draft school year calendar, which is based on a traditional calendar as in years past. The Board expects to officially approve the calendar at its next regular meeting on September 9.  


In recent years, the district has explored a potential shift from our traditional calendar to one that starts earlier in August and conducts final exams prior to winter break. The district conducted surveys and collected feedback through various channels. After extensive review, it was clear that there was not a community-wide consensus behind changing the calendar.  However, the district will continue to further explore creative options to help reduce student stress over winter break.  


Further,  a committee of school community representatives formed last year to review calendar options for the future and to revise the district’s School Calendar Preparation Guidelines.

Administration presents a summary of summer construction projects

The summer of 2019 was filled with a variety of life safety projects as well as critical renovations to help with building upkeep, improve operations and enhance safety on both Glenbrook campuses. At GBN, the pool deck, student activities areas, and a dance room were renovated. At GBS, athletic offices were moved to a more visible location, hallway furniture, and outdoor seating were added. New flooring, lighting, and safety barriers and bollards were also installed in key exterior areas. These projects were completed on time and under budget.

Board approves Concussion Oversight Teams

In response to growing concerns for student-athletes, recent state legislation now requires the formation of a Concussion Oversight Team for each school. The Teams, approved by the Board, will be responsible for establishing a return-to-play protocol in compliance with state guidelines. Members of the Teams include a neurologist, along with athletic trainers, nurses, counselors, and athletic directors from both Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South.
