Riverwalk additions policy:
The Naperville Riverwalk Commission has approved a new procedure for groups to follow when seeking to add a feature to the path along the West Branch of the DuPage River. The three-page policy document spells out the information required to submit a new feature for consideration and the process by which advisory and governmental bodies in Naperville -- including the Riverwalk Commission and its planning, design and construction subcommittee, the Naperville Park District and the Naperville City Council -- will review the submission. All groups proposing additions must work with the park district to estimate the feature's five-year maintenance costs and decommission costs, as well as its expected life span. Organizations seeking to add elements to the Riverwalk will be responsible for funding maintenance costs for the first five years, but once an addition is installed, it becomes the property of the city. For additional information, contact Jan Erickson, Riverwalk administrator, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (630) 305-5984.
Dual-language in Dist. 44:
Lombard Elementary District 44 is sponsoring a tour of dual-language classrooms and inviting parents to learn more about the program. The tours are scheduled for 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. Feb. 25 and Feb. 27 at Madison Elementary School, 150 W. Madison St., Lombard. Madison offers a voluntary dual-language program featuring Spanish and English, with all entering kindergarten students eligible to participate. If more students want to join than there are slots available, the district will conduct a lottery to decide entry. The program aims to promote high academic achievement in all content areas and embrace diversity while teaching students to become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural.
