 Public Hearing Notice

      PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given that the Board of Education of Frankfort CUSD #168 in Franklin and Williamson Counties, Illinois, will hold a Public Hearing for the purpose of receiving public comment and questions regarding the District’s application and plan for a Waiver of the Illinois School Code found at 105 ILCS 5/10-20.12a on Monday, August 5, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.  at the Central Junior High School Library located at 1500 East Ninth Street in West Frankfort, Illinois.  This waiver would allow the non-resident children of full-time employees to attend without the requirement to pay tuition.  The reasoning for the waiver request is an attempt to recruit and retain quality employees.  The waiver will be for a five-year period. 

      Following the Hearing, the Board will convene a Special Meeting at approximately 7:15 p.m. for the purpose of considering personnel issues.  Notice for the Special Meeting will be forthcoming in a timely manner prior to August 5, 2019.
