WATCH: What About Wage Freezes or Pay Cuts for the Superintendent and Administrators?

Miss one of the previous videos from this week? Here's what was discussed:

Wyllie's first video question dealt with closing Lincoln-Way West High School and why it wasn't an option the district's board of education has looked at.

Part two dealt with the possibility of wage freezes or pay cuts for administrators and the superintendent.

WATCH: Why Wasn't a Referendum Considered as an Option at This Time?

The third segment discussed why a referendum wasn't one of the options on the table during his presentation of solutions to the district's budget issues. 

In the fourth video, Wyllie responds to D210 residents who believe the board has already decided what it's going to do when it comes to developing new revenue streams and making budget cuts.

Paul - thanks for these video clips esp one at a time. In our harried lieves, we wouldn't sit and listen perhaps, to the entire interview, but being able to watch a clip per day was really inciteful. I have always admired Dr Wyllie's leadership of District 210 and that certainly has not changed.

Like Sands Through The Hourglass, So Are The Taxpayer Dollars during Dr Wyllie's leadership of Dist. 210

Thanks, Jane. However, Joe Vince of Frankfort Patch is the guy behind all of these.
