The Lake Forest District 115 Board of Education announced on Tuesday morning that it will continue considering the candidacy of Dr. Chala Holland for the role of principal of Lake Forest High School and to that end it will schedule another Special Meeting between June 1 and its regular board meeting on June 9.
A standing-room only, vocal crowd filled the District 115 Board of Education meeting room on Tuesday morning to voice opinions about the principal search at Lake Forest High School. Many people expressed concern that website and Facebook posts for the candidate, Dr. Chala Holland, had been removed from the web after her name was leaked. Others said they took issue with her posts that remain in circulation. Others questioned the administration’s plans for tracking or detracking the LFHS curriculum. And some – but not all — of those in attendance responded negatively with shouts of “No!” when Dr. Holland’s colleagues from Oak Park & River Forest High School and Evanston High School took the podium to share their positive experiences and offer support for her candidacy.
The board and administration listened to public comments for about an hour and a half before moving into executive session, after which they returned to announce that they will continue the process and will scheduled another public meeting that between June 1 and 9. Daily North Shore will provide the date when it is set by the board.
