The District 58 Board of Education will hold a Regular Board Meeting on Monday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Downers Grove Village Hall, 801 Burlington Ave. Under Governor Pritzker’s guidelines for Phase 4, a limited number of seats will be available for the public to attend the meeting in person. The public is strongly encouraged to participate in the meeting remotely. 

The meeting agenda covers many topics, including:

  • A vote to adopt an American Education Week resolution
  • A vote to adopt the 2020 Certificate of Levy
  • A vote to approve the District’s position on resolutions in the 2020 Illinois Association of School Boards’ Resolutions Committee Report. Delegate Emily Hanus will cast her vote accordingly at the Delegate Assembly meeting this month.

  • A vote to approve mechanical engineering services for Pierce Downer School’s roof project

There will be a standing action item on the Board Agenda for the duration of the pandemic in the event the Board is required to respond to rapidly changing events that may impact the District's learning plans.

How to view the meeting:

The public may view the meeting via a live stream on the Village's YouTube page. After the meeting has concluded, this live stream will be saved on District 58’s YouTube channel and shared on the District 58 website.  

For those who choose to attend the meeting in person, seating for visitors will be limited to 25 on a first come, first served basis. Social distancing must be adhered to and all visitors must wear a mask. The doors will open at 6:45 p.m.
