Meeting roundup

Hinsdale High School District 86

Among other business at their meeting Tuesday, board members

• heard an update on attendance for hybrid students and learned that district families will receive a survey this week asking students to choose hybrid or remote for the rest of the school year starting March 8. The district will offer a four-day schedule if numbers allow. Hybrid students who have three unexcused absences after March 8 will be moved to full remote.

• listened to finance committee Chairman Erik Held provide a brief update on the plan to borrow $3 million to $4 million to renovate space the district is leasing at 361 Frontage Road in Burr Ridge to provide an additional 13,317 square feet to serve students who attend the district’s Transition Center programs. The board will take an official vote to issue the debt at its March 25 meeting.

• approved an amendment to extend the interim human resources director contract with Mary Dudek for an additional 32 days at $750 per day. Dudek has been filling in on an interim basis since July after former chief human resources officer Domenico Maniscalco resigned in June.

“She has been working five days a week since we hired her,” Superintendent Tammy Prentiss said, noting there should be less heavy lifting on contract tracing and quarantining now after all D86 staff members are vaccinated.

The district has hired Cheryl Moore to be the new assistant superintendent for human resources effective July 1.
