A July 23rd report by Jean Lotus of the Forest Park Review detailed the community conversation held at the School and Community Safety Forum on July 16 at Proviso Math and Science Academy. According to the report:

“An anonymous hotline, school uniforms, parent volunteers and reviving the district’s peer mediation program were some of the audience suggestions generated July 16 at a School and Community Safety Forum held at Proviso Math and Science Academy.

But attendance was sparse at the event. The handful of audience members in the largely empty auditorium at PMSA were outnumbered by police and village representatives from nine of the district’s 10 feeder communities, D 209 school board members and Superintendent Nettie Collins-Hart.

The forum was prompted by student fighting incidents involving both Proviso East and West high schools last school year, Collins-Hart said.”
