Dear Readers of The Extra Mile:
We hope the school year has started off well and that you are feeling settled into your school routine. Now that it is October and officially fall, hopefully cooler weather will replace the summer heat – and with it bring baseball playoffs and the return of other fall festivities.
October also brings new additions at the firm. George Acosta, Kristen Kinast, and Valerie Robert have joined the firm following their graduation from law school. Some of you may know George, Kristen, and Valerie from their time with the firm last summer, and we are excited to have them back on a full-time basis.
As a reminder, our annual “The Year in Review: The Highlights and Lowlights of Illinois School Law” seminar will be held virtually on October 28 from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Please scroll down for additional information and to register.
In this month’s edition of The Extra Mile, we are highlighting a Seventh Circuit retaliatory discharge employment case and several Board Governance/Corporate issues, including the Open Meetings Act, the Prevailing Wage Act notice requirement, and contract authority. Also included is a link to our article summarizing the recent Executive Orders, ISBE/IDPH Emergency Rules, and updated guidance documents.
