The Geneva District 304 school board heard from parents both praising the district for how it was handling a return to in-person learning and criticizing that volunteers were not allowed back into the school buildings.

Like other school districts across the state, St. Charles School Dist. 303 is experiencing a bus driver shortage. The National Association for Pupil Transportation, which represents school bus drivers, has said the pandemic is partly to blame because older drivers have to consider the health risk.
