The Board of Education of Crescent-Iroquois Community Unit School District #249 met Monday, June 22, in the Crescent City Grade School gym, following social distancing standards.

It was announced the district audit would be done by Russ Leigh July 20-21, and interim Superintendent Rod Grimsley is hopeful the board will again be able to lower the tax rate next year. Butzow questioned financials, with Grimsley noting the state has passed its budget and he is “fairly confident” the state will pay its bills in regards to education.
