With the 35th Ethnic Fest now in the books, it is an apt time to hear from the District 97 school board about its plans for the future of the district’s Multicultural Resource Center. There has been discussion of moving the facility from Percy Julian Middle School to the new administration building. That creates some bureaucratic complications. There was a passing suggestion to blend it with the new Historical Society facility.
Our point is that this is a vital program, often overlooked, and its future needs to be assured.
