An increase in the Equalized Assessed Valuation (EAV) reflects upward movement in the economy.
For the first time in four years, the tax levy for Lincoln-Way High School District 210 is slated for an increase of roughly $3.5 million. Details of the proposed tax levy were presented Oct. 25 at the board of education meeting at Lincoln-Way East High School. The total property taxes to be levied for 2012 are $77,927, 589, according to Sawin. “As you know from previous levies, levying a certain amount does not guarantee that the district will receive the amount requested.

The final official equalized assessed valuation for the district, the prior year’s extension, new property value, the adjusted tax rate, and the consumer price index all help …

Bullying is bound to get you in hot water at Lincoln-Way High School District 210. A new online bullying reporting system is in place.
No longer does a kid have to battle bullying in fearful silence. At Lincoln-Way High School District 210, board members learned the details at their meeting Thursday at Lincoln-Way East High School of an online bully reporting system.

Lincoln-Way East moves to 7-0, while holding onto the Dave McKay Gridiron Grail trophy for the twelfth consecutive year in its 36-6 rout of Lincoln-Way Central.
Breaking It Down: A good portion of Lincoln-Way East fans were able to leave the frigid, metal bleachers at halftime of Friday night's contest feeling confident about how the rest of the game would go, as Tom Fuessel was able to help build a comfortable 24-0 lead over Lincoln-Way Central. Fuessel frustrated the Lincoln-Way Central defense gaining over 300 yards combined through the air and ground, until he and the majority of the Griffin starters were pulled mid-way through the third quarter. Lincoln-Way Central's defensive line was able to sack Fuessel four times, yet was worn down quickly by trying to chase the quarterback down on his scrambling attempts. If not for Lincoln-Way East having over double the amount of penalties that the …

Only a few weeks left of the summer. School starts between Aug. 16-21 for most children in New Lenox and surrounding suburbs.
In the three-to-four weeks before school starts, many of the kids and parents of school-age children begin to get excited. Elementary students may or may not yet know who their teachers will be, but for those that do they've no doubt heard the news from friends or perhaps older siblings. This teacher or that teacher is "awesome, easy or tough." They know which building they'll be spending the bulk of their day. They have in-hand the school supply list. If it has been misplaced, the stores in town, including the Walmart on Route 30, have supply lists from every school in New Lenox and surrounding communities. But when exactly does school begin? While it seems to start earlier every year, it's not really the case. For more than 10 years …
