U-46 Equity audit among expense items set for vote

By Seth Hancock
  School District U-46 is planning to spend $163,250 as part of an equity audit.
  The contract, with Curriculum Management Solution and paid through the education fund, if approved, was part of $312,695 in expenditure proposals presented to the Board of education on Monday, March 1 with a vote planned for March 8.
  U-46 openly opposes equality in favor of equity. It defines equality as “giving all students the same support” and equity as “supporting each student according to their need.”
  The proposal states the “goal of an equity audit is to identify institutional policies and practices that either advertently or inadvertently create discriminatory trends in data that negatively affect student outcomes. Our district will engage in an equity audit to identify inequities and discriminatory practices followed by re-aligning the work of the Equity Committee to ensure we have a robust equity plan based on the equity audit findings.”
  The district is asking for $65,000 (education fund) for a one-year contract with Ellen Kamps as a website consultant. The contract states she will work between 15 and 30 hours a week.
  We are fortunate to be able to tap the expertise of a dedicated, highly skilled, and reliable consultant who can support our district and school websites, family engagement, and vital communication efforts for our staff of more than 5,000 full-time employees and families of our 37,000 students,” the proposal states.
  A contract with Workforce Software has a price tag of $49,945 (education fund) for annual support and licensing updates.
  For lead and asbestos abatement as well as demolition pertaining to a library relocation project at Elgin’s Lowrie Elementary School, the district is asking for $34,500 (operations and maintenance fund) with High Efficiency Professional Abatement, Inc.
