The District 89 school board will hold a public hearing on a proposed charter school tonight, Thursday, April 6, 6 p.m., at its headquarters at 906 Walton St. in Melrose Park.
Dr. Elaine Lee, a D89 psychologist, has been trying to start Mastery Academy Charter School for the last several years. She’s presented before the school board numerous times over the last four years.
In a flyer promoting the public hearing, Lee noted that the school has the support of numerous clergy members, politicians, village officials and community members.
They include Reverend Marvin E. Wiley, pastor of Rock of Ages Baptist Church; Maywood Police Chief Vladimir Talley; Maywood Park District Board Member Bill Hampton; and former Maywood clerk and trustee Gary Woll, among others. VFP
