On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Glen Oak Community Learning Center.
STUDENTS WITH MORE THAN FIVE (5) UNEXCUSED ABSENCES IN A GRADING PERIOD, INCLUDING OUT OF SCHOOL SUSPENSIONS, WILL RECEIVE AN “F” FOR THAT GRADING PERIOD. IF A STUDENT MISSES AN EXCESS OF 20 ABSENCES DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR, A STUDENT COULD BE SUBJECT TO RETENTION. PARENTS, THIS POLICY EFFECTS EVERY STUDENT. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CALL OR SEND A NOTE FOR EVERY DAY THAT YOUR CHILD IS ABSENT.
