Barrington Area Unit District 220 will receive public feedback Tuesday night on proposals before the Illinois Association of School Boards, including one that would support legislation allowing districts to arm teachers and staff members.

The District 220 school board meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the administration headquarters, 515 W. Main St. in Barrington, but the public comment on the proposals before the state association isn't scheduled until 8 p.m.


District 220 officials are to vote Nov. 19 on which proposals before the school board association to back at its annual convention late this month. The school board is asking that comments be limited to 90 seconds. Even if supported by the association, the state legislature and Gov. J.B. Pritzker would have to back any measures for them to become law.
