About this Article

Several parents and students gathered Thursday morning outside the Palatine Township Elementary District 15 administrative offices before an arbitration hearing was set to begin on the controversial late start/early release scheduling plan. They support the board of education's earlier vote to release students early on Fridays to accommodate weekly professional development time among teachers.
