I’ve never understood the logic of scheduling an inspection if the intent is to see what it really happening. Is the real reason to show complete compliance instead of reality?
The email below is from the principal of BHS to all staff. It was received by FOIA.
“ROE Inspection” is Regional Office of Education. The inspections are required by state statute and Illinois administrative code. https://www2.illinois.gov/sites/sfm/About/Divisions/Fire-Prevention-and-Building-Safety/Pages/School-Inspection-Program.aspx
The law was meant to keep kids safe. I bet BHS passed, potential violations got a temporary fix.
How long was it before all of the items mentioned returned? Note the importance: High.
This is just another example of lawmakers wanting to make sure kids are safe and then a program is developed that does nothing but cost taxpayers money. It appears that beginning in 2016 these inspections are done by local fire departments. Do local businesses get an inspection warning or just schools?
