D210 Supt. Lawrence Wyllie explains how the U.S. Route 30 widening project has impacted bus routes and student safety in this final installment. Find out why the piles of black dirt in front of L-W Central is a blessing.

It's just a month into the 2012-13 year for schools in the Lincoln-Way High School District 210, and faculty, administrators and students are getting an idea of what to expect and what challenges are ahead.

As we've done in the past, Patch sat down with Supt. Lawrence Wyllie to discuss the school year as well as other topics. The final installment deals with the effect the U. S. Route 30 widening project has had on Lincoln-Way schools.

  • Part 1: Wyllie talks about how the beginning of the school year has started for the district.
  • Part 2: The superintendent discusses how the district can maintain high academic standards while state aid and budget numbers keep shrinking.
  • Part 3: Wyllie lays out some of the other revenue streams the district is examining.

Editor's note: The interview with Wyllie was done the week of Sept. 2.
