D51 board voices frustration following rowdy meetings

The Daily Sentinel: District 51 School Board members are expressing sadness and frustration after a pair of recent meetings devolved into raucous rallies.

An Aug. 3 meeting was temporarily suspended after parents in the audience yelled at the school district for discussing incentives for vaccinated staff. And, just this week, the in-person portion of Tuesday’s board meeting ended with the board receiving a police escort to their cars as some in the audience called for School District 51 Superintendent Diana Sirko to resign or be arrested.

The board reconvened on a publicly available virtual livestream over Vimeo later that night, disappointed in how the meeting unraveled.
