Local School Community Blogs

D181 Parents for Accountability and Transparency
D181 Parents for Accountability and Transparency
Two local blogs are making it easy for community members to stay on top of what is happening in their respective districts. These blogs can be used as a resource for new home buyers hoping to understand the educational politics in the school districts they are considering or during election time when deciding which candidates to support.

Hinsdale School District 181 parents have created a blog to keep other parents, community members and the general public apprised of what is going on in their district. "D181 Parents for Accountability and Transparency" can be found at http://www.hold181accountable.com. This blog showcases an informative and honest view on the affairs and shortcomings of Hinsdale School District 181. 

Pleasantdale School District 107 is featured in a blog called "Everyone's Voice - What have you got to say? A Pleasantdale Community News Blog - Raising awareness one resident at a time." This blog, found at http://www.pleasantdaleblog.com, occasionally touches on Pleasant Dale Park District and Village of Willow Springs affairs, but its main focus lately is on the school district.  Pleasantdale 107 encompasses parts of Burr Ridge, Countryside, Indian Head Park and Willow Springs. The blog mixes cold hard facts with humor and sarcasm. Video and links to monthly board meetings can be found there as well as learning websites for kids, educational websites for adults  and a link to find teacher salary information statewide.

If you want to get the low down on either of these school districts, click on over to their blogs and read away! Warning ahead...you might get sucked in for hours!
