Agenda Item 7.0
Approval of the Intergovernmental Agreement between CCSD59 and the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago For After School Care Agreement – 7.01
CCSD59 and its various park districts have had agreements in place to provide before and after school recreation programs for CCSD59 families for elementary students. Junior high students are not eligible to participate in the park district’s elementary before and after school program. In an effort to provide services for junior high students, the District contacted the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago will be able to provide fee-based after school care for all CCSD59 students including junior high students and students with special needs. If approved, the fee-based YMCA program will be hosted at Grove Junior High School and at the YMCA site.
Student Transportation Policy 4.110 Transportation Section of the Family Reference Guide – 7.02
The board of education discussed CCSD59’s transportation policy to determine if changes were needed regarding transporting students to after school programs outside the District’s boundaries. After discussion, the board of education determined not to revise the current transportation policy.
Approval of the Educator Prep Memo of Understanding Between District 214 and CCSD59 – 7.03
