Funny, I thought GuyFawkes10 was suggesting that the people would indeed fly to STL, and then shuttles would drive them back to Quincy. Sounds like enplanements to me.

With all due respect, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there has got to be a rule against what you are suggesting. In order to receive the federal aviation grant, there have to be 10,000 enplanements. (Enplanements are not the number of tickets that are sold, it's the number of ticketed passengers who actually travel on the flights.) If what you're suggesting was allowed, the…

Is there a list somewhere on the city's website of how many council meetings attended and or missed by aldermen? If not there should be. That is just as important if not more than Mayor Moore's City report card ie., "how are we doing".

This is off topic, but your claims like this really need a link, instead of you spewing Democrat talking points on every issue. "a guy paid by oil companies to tell you that extreme levels of his company's byproduct are okeydokey can be more convincing than the near-entirety of Earth's scientists" Who is that oil company guy? And who is "the near entirety" guy? I read the actual…

Quincy School District to seek further input on facilities

Quincy School District to seek further input on facilities

8 months ago by Bob Gough

The first step task for the superintendent’s steering committee of the Quincy School District is to gather information.

QSD 172 Business Manager Joel Murphy said the 27 member committee has met twice and in the process of putting together a survey to gauge public opinion on how to proceed with new and refurbished buildings.

The survey will ask about grade configuration, financing options, going with new or remodeled buildings and a priority list. Murphy said he hopes to gather 1,500 signatures, which is about 1,000 more than the district used in a survey done last year.

Murphy, who was placed in charge of the committee by Superintendent Steve Cobb, said the district wants input from all members of the community, whether they be teachers, parents or even if they have no current ties with the district.

Cobb said he wants a recommendation from the committee that he can present to the School Board in June. 

The Board also discussed plans to enforce a policy to possibly hold back students who fall behind and do not meet certain reading standards.

The District is considering following the already existing policy with the 2014-2015 school year in grades kindergarten through 8th. .

The policy applies to students in kindergarten through 8th grade.

The Board also approved a resolution to extend the expiration date of the Quincy and Adams County Enterprise Zone to July 1, 2016.

Economic Development officials are in the process of applying for a 25-year extension of the Enterprise Zone with the state of Illinois.
