Two unique factors have come together that would allow District 186 to become a world-class school system. They are the railroad relocation project and the county sales tax for schools. Alan Woodson, Tom Kerins and Jack Pfeiffer, all former teachers and school administrators, will present their research on how that can be achieved. The discussion will touch on related topics such as student achievement, the cost comparison between the construction of two new schools and remodeling old buildings and student population versus cost savings to the taxpayer. The meeting will begin with a coffee reception at 7:30 a.m. followed by the program at 8 a.m. Public Policy Breakfasts are hosted by the Citizens Club of Springfield.
