Lincolnwood School District 74 may have set a record on Tuesday evening for latest start-time to an open session, 11:14 p.m., and fastest finish, less than two minutes.
Only two audience members were in attendance; a teacher from Rutledge Hall and a village employee. The meeting provided no new information.
Despite residents demanding transparency between them and the school board, many recent open sessions have lasted for only a handful of minutes. Much of the time has been spent in closed session, as the board prepares to deal with the recent departures of its superintendent and assistant superintendent. The district's business superintendent, Kevin Nohelty, is also on administrative leave.
Meanwhile, compensation details regarding former Superintendent Klaisner's departure has yet to be made available. Board president Amy Frankel has said in the past that she's "legally obligated" not to disclose any financial details, despite the fact that Klaisner was a public employee.
Skokie Patch has submitted a Freedom of Information Act requesting those details. Once that information becomes available, Skokie Patch will update.
