D128 Host Families Needed for Chinese Students

Over the past eight years, LHS and VHHS have shared meaningful learning experiences with a high school in Changchun, China, through an exchange program between the two school districts. During that time, more than 75 students have been involved in this D128-sponsored cultural exchange program. In the summer of 2015, a group of students, teachers and administrators visited China to develop a program that will bring students and teachers from China this August for the fall semester of 2016-17 school year. We are in need of District 128 families to host our Chinese guests from mid-August to mid-December while they live, work and learn in our community. If you are interested in hosting for all or part of this experience please contact Associate Superintendent Al Fleming at (847) 247-4520 or al.fleming@d128.org for additional information. 

2016-17 Senior Parking Sticker Information

2016-2017 parking ​sticker registration is now closed. On Friday, April 15th, 2016 all incoming seniors received an email to their student email account ~ Senior Parking Sticker Information.

During the week of May 2nd, a random lottery was used to determine eligibility for the parking sticker. An email was sent to the your SCHOOL EMAIL ACCOUNT that week letting you know the status of your submission.

The stickers will be hand applied to each student’s vehicle by our security department starting July 5th and continuing through the summer. Students will be unable to receive their sticker unless it is hand applied by our security staff to the vehicle that is being parked on campus during the 2016/2017 school year. This process will be done in the front circle of the main entrance at the high school.

Please contact me at 847-327-7006 or diana.gratz@d128.org with any questions.


Thanks.

District 128 Board of Education Approves $4 Million Tax Abatement for 2015

The Community High School District 128 Board of Education has voted to abate, or not collect, $4 million (4.97%) in property taxes this year. Following months of financial analysis and discussion, the Board voted to approve the 2015 abatement at its Nov. 16 meeting.

Over the five-year period from 2011-2015, the D128 Board has abated, or not collected, $18.6 million less in property taxes than allowed under Illinois Property Tax Extension Limitation Legislation (PTELL), which includes Bond and Interest abatements of $15.8 million and a $2.8 million reduction in the Operating Fund Levy in 2014. Like all public school districts, D128 receives the largest amount of its operating revenue through property taxes. D128 Superintendent Prentiss Lea stated, "We are not aware of any other Illinois property taxing body that has abated, or not collected, as much property tax over a similar period as the D128 Board has abated."

The D128 Board, administration and staff are thankful for the tremendous local support of the district and its two world-class high schools and also realize the burden of property tax on constituents. D128 Board President Pat Groody noted, "Balancing the needs of all of our constituents is at the heart of everything we do. The generous support provided by our taxpayers has been key to the success of building the strong programs we offer in D128. Using reserves in place of incremental tax revenue to pay down our debt provides some measure of tax relief and is the prudent thing to do in this economic environment."

LHS Athletic History Touchscreen and Website

An exciting new addition to LHS this school year is the LHS Athletic History touchscreen. With a touch of the screen, users can view the accomplishments of LHS athletic teams, All-State athletes, and Newsom Award winners. The touchscreen is located in the LHS front foyer. The information is also accessible online.

Thanks to LHS Athletic Director Briant Kelly and Coach Dale Eggert for their work in making this project possible!
