Oak Lawn Community High School
It was graduation night in for 392 Oak Lawn High School seniors, but dozens of seniors did not get their diplomas because of a community service scandal.
Four dozen Oak Lawn High School seniors won’t be graduating with the rest of their class on Wednesday, after allegedly cheating on their community service hours requirement.
All 1,800 students were offered the chance to get free EKGs, and Supt. Mike Riordan said he believes at least 1,000 of them got the four-minute heart scan.
Teachers and staff at Oak Lawn Community High School have voted to take smaller pay raises the next couple years, rather than face cutting staff by about 20 percent.
Teachers and other employees at Oak Lawn Community High School District 229 vote tomorrow on whether to accept smaller pay raises over the next two years or see nearly three dozen of them lose their jobs.
