LEEA concerned about school construction issues
members of the Lincoln Elementary Education Association, the
professional organization for District #27 teachers, would like to
express a few concerns about the recent District #27 Board of
Education decision regarding the Central School/Lincoln Junior

used not only by students in the school district, but also by many
residents from the community. This athletic facility will be

work in the schools and are in daily contact with the students
deserves conscientious consideration.
