FOIA - CUSD 205 - Dock Days

The purpose for this request was to help ascertain the total effect of the Galesburg Community Unit School District #205 Board of Education’s decision to limit the number of school days below the required number of attendance days as outlined in 105 ILCS 5/18-8.05.

The preceding is an excerpt from the documents provided as a result of my FOIA request to CUSD 205. It outlines a list of pros/cons to amending the current, 168-day schedule, presented by Board President Mike Panther to Superintendent Bart Arthur, and, subsequently, Board Member Tom Coclasure.

The first document is the excerpt in its original form. The second document is the result of running the first through an OCR processor in an effort to make the text within the scanned images searchable. I’ve provided both versions to ensure transparency in the event of errors in the conversion process.
