ED, R-B seeks extensive renovation [BF]

Riverside/Brookfield Landmark (Bob Skolnik) has the story. District 208 leadership is avoiding specific dollar figures, but the piece mentions a possible range of $30-50 million.

It doesn't appear that the architect contributed money to the campaigns of the school board members. But I'm also having trouble finding any campaign disclosure on school board candidates in Riverside or Brookfield. It's conceivable they stayed under the minimum that triggers the requirement to file with the state.

And here's how RB is doing on the Prairie State Achievement Exam. See Landmark (Bob Uphues).

  • How much does R-B spend per student?

    $8,154

    How much does District 209 spend per student?

    $14,093

    Proviso Township High Schools spends almost 73% more per student.

    Paging Rep. Yarbrough and the liberal establishment. Hello?

    Insufficient money is not D209's problem.

  • I found out this is an apples and oranges comparison. The R-B # is money spent per student on education. I assume the D209 # is for all the district expenses, including buildings and stuff.
