The joint meeting of Evanston’s two school boards, originally scheduled to be held next Monday night, has been postponed to May.
The announcement was made last night at the Evanston/Skokie School District 65 board meeting by Suni Kartha, board president.
“Our Northwestern University colleagues who are presenting some data to us,” she explained, “needed more time, so that joint meeting has been postponed until May.”
Each year, the District 65 board and the Evanston Township High School District 202 board meet jointly in an exercise they informally refer to as “virtual consolidation” to discuss issues of importance to both districts, which cover the same geographic territory in Evanston and a portion of Skokie.
Students who attend public schools go to kindergarten through eighth grade in District 65 and then move on to District 202 for high school.
