Comcast provides spotty tech support and dealing with their customer service is a torturous experience . Can the Village help deal with alternatives or getting Comcast to change for the better.

BruceBrandt

New Trier Sophomore’s are bringing home permission slips to be able to participate in sexually explicit discussions. How young is the district targeting students for these type of discussions
Kelly Matthews-Pluta
59:42
I would like to ask about composting.
Kitty Brandtner
01:02:56
anyone friends with any higher ups at AT&T? :)
Melissa Mitchell
01:09:10
Kelly, there are private composting companies you can arrange service with for your residential homes. We use WasteNot for composting and they've been great.
William Herst
01:13:30
Regarding the Post Office site: Rather than an outright sale of land, if such is being considered, may we consider a 99-year lease, such as was done at Willow and Waukegan Road in Northbrook? Royal Ridge (gated community) is on such land. There’s a 50-year extension connected with the lease.One benefit - the value of such lease may be close an outright sale, so Winnetka can potentially realize approximately the same proceeds. And our great-great-great-grandchildren would then have the opportunity to use the land for whatever purpose may be optimal, at such date.

When will the Library Strategic Plan be finalized and made public on the Library website? I understand some of the language was being revised to make the plan more readable
Connie Henry

According to ISBE, D36 enrollment is down over 20% since the 2007 referendum.
Marc Hecht
01:18:01
Scott and Ryan As the screen is now set up, I cannot see the "raise hand" button to make a comment. Am I missing it?
Melissa Mitchell
01:18:52
Marc, on the bottom if you click on "Reactions" you'll see "Raise Hand" there
John Peterson
01:19:24
Click on "Reactions" and it will be at the bottom of the small pop-up screen.

FYI re composting (sorry for delay replying - technical issues), the Village supports it, is looking to expand it, and currently offers service to residents, businesses, organizations and events through two container swap providers, Collective Resource Compost and WasteNot. Here is the URL to the Village web page re composting - https://www.villageofwinnetka.org/231/Composting. Thank you for raising the issue!
BruceBrandt
01:24:11
Why does the state dictate schools what can be taught and not the parents
Laura Buchanan
01:24:14
For Schools: What specific early literacy intervention curriculums / technologies does D36 currently use and/or what are we planning on using to address the gaps here?
Melissa Mitchell

Dawn Livingston
01:31:10
In response to Laura's last question,,one specific example is that we have committed to providing training to certify at least one teacher in each building in Wilson Reading, which is a comprehensive and highly structured evidence informed program that supports struggling readers.
Laura Buchanan
01:32:57
Dawn: Thank you, super helpful example!
