A couple of people have left comments about programs being put on hold at District 150. Of course, the biggest concern for most who comment here appear to be the disposition of the Richwoods IB Program.
From what I have been able to find out, ALL PROGRAMS are under review for the 2011-2012 school year and all information going out (if any) regarding ALL PROGRAMS, will come from Administration.
Personally, I'm pleased that Dr. Lathan is reviewing ALL PROGRAMS. It's evident that ALL PROGRAMS as they currently stand DO NOT WORK FOR THE MAJORITY OF STUDENTS.
Additionally, I am pleased that Dr. Lathan's highly qualified team, who appear to be open to equality in education, are from outside of Peoria. We see where the teams from Peoria have left the students of the District.
Riddle me this... Exactly what is wrong with a new administration putting a moratorium on processes until they get a handle on things? Absolutely nothing, that's what. They would be remiss if they didn't. I'm comfortable with letting this group do their work and have no desire to try and get out in front of them with speculation about what they should do.
