Despite a teachers strike, Lake Forest High School opened Monday with certified teachers, non-certified teacher assistants and community volunteers.
It is unclear whether the school session will be recognized as an official attendance day by the state. Lake County Regional Superintendent of Schools Roycealee Wood will find out from the state if the day was official.
Wood called the effort by District 115 as “precedent setting.”
“It’s a very impressive school and very impressive programming,” she said.
