Illinois--Belleville Mayor Says Daytime Curfew Will Be Dropped

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

In a meeting yesterday with J.C. Harrison and Tim Jones, Belleville
Mayor Mark Eckert agreed to drop the proposed daytime curfew. This is
highly encouraging!

On the other hand, the mayor indicated he would seek changes to the
city's truancy ordinance. When we obtain a copy of the revisions, we
will provide an analysis.

ACTION REQUESTED

Clear your calendar for July 5 at 7:00 p.m. so you are available to
attend the Board of Aldermen meeting. We expect the ordinance to come
up for a vote at that time. We need to remain vigilant. We have not
yet seen a written copy of the newest proposed changes.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

It is not uncommon for proposed ordinances to go through several
revisions. If you would like to track the various proposals that have
been discussed, the easiest strategy might be to identify them by
date.

The first proposal we alerted you about was dated June 7, 2011. After
the recent large public meeting, a revision dated June 22 was
submitted. These two versions are no longer current. We are waiting
for an official copy of the next revision.

The city's truancy ordinance (section 30-1-44) is currently stricter
than state law in that it allows a penalty the very first time a
Belleville student is absent from school for part of a day without
valid cause.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!
