As officials examine the 2012 property tax levy, worry grows over shortfalls that might hit the district.
An Orland Park mall's property tax dispute with Cook County and declining funds from the state could cause multimillion-dollar shortfalls for District 230, officials said Thursday. The dire forecast comes as the Consolidated High School District 230 School Board adopted resolution on an estimated property tax levy that includes a $1.4 million increase over what district taxpayers were billed last year. Even with some major shifting of funds, the district needs a 1.5 percent hike for the 2012 levy to help cover costs. The estimated levy, totaling about $100 million, was approved in a 4-1 board vote Thursday night inside Victor J. Andrew High School in Tinley Park. A final levy will need board approval in December before it can be submitted …

A fresh face could be roaming the halls next year of high schools in Palos Hills, Tinley Park and Orland Park.
Officials are hoping their new K9 selection will be friendlier than German Shepherds and Rotweilers, while also sniffing out drugs, gun powder and alcohol in local schools. Consolidated High School 230 board members are looking to bring a golden retriever named Goldie to their three area campuses—Sandburg in Orland Park, Andrew in Tinley Park and Stagg in Palos Hills, according to TribLocal. The suggestion comes from the Houston, Texas, company, InterQuest Detection Canines, the story said. Triblocal reports: The dog is docile and we like the fact that this isn’t a growling dog,” Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Kim Dryier said. “This isn’t a scare tactic. It’s just another way to keep things out of our schools that do not belong…
