CHAMPAIGN — Champaign high school students would like to see future high schools to be relevant to their interests and future careers.
That’s the general conclusion of a survey of 542 students at Central, Centennial, Novak and READY schools conducted by student ambassadors and graduating seniors Summer Choi of Centennial and Mac Dressman of Central.
In a perfect world, Champaign's middle schools would come equipped with wider hallways, better teacher's lounges and adequate parking.
Another bucket list item for those sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders: gender-neutral bathrooms.
CHAMPAIGN — Turf at Tommy Stewart Field. Special ed classrooms at both high schools. More parking spaces at Edison.
These are among the needs a facilities-focused committee of Unit 4 faculty and staff members has identified as priorities for Champaign's two high schools and three middle schools.
CHAMPAIGN — The seven-person Champaign school board is in the market for a sixth new member in less than a year.
Former board President Laurie Bonnett announced Monday night she’s moving to Pittsburgh with her family. Her last meeting will be Jan. 25.
URBANA — The Champaign County Board may have turned down a budget request Tuesday to fund two positions and continue the work of the Access Initiative program, but it’s going to happen anyway.

CHAMPAIGN — Unit 4’s tab from the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District next school year will be $25,000-plus more than it was a year ago.
The Champaign school board voted 6-0 on Monday night to approve a contract with the MTD to provide transportation for middle and high school students.
The total cost: $344,084, up from $318,825 in 2014-15, district attorney Tom Lockman said.
