The lawsuit isn’t seeking money – just for the district to stop allowing out-of-district students to enroll.
“My client isn’t doing this for financial gain,” Coghlan said. “My client wants the school district to stop facilitating the known admission of out-of-district students, and to stop facilitating enrollment violations.”
Figures from the Illinois Report Card website show enrollment in DeKalb School District 428 has grown from 6,245 to 6,450 between 2013 and 2016. Current year enrollment is at 6,491, plus another 125 outplaced students. The biggest changes from 2016 include a 61-student jump at DeKalb High School, and a 32-student drop at Huntley Middle School.
