Longstanding boundary error lets student attend wrong district in Chicago suburbs

Sept. 30, 2011
Students on one street were enrolled in the Lombard district, but should have been attending Glen Ellyn schools

From The Chicago Tribune: A school boundary error that long went unnoticed allowed some students living on one short street in Glen Ellyn, Ill., to improperly attend schools in the Lombard district for at least nine years and possibly longer. The street, the 100 block of Surrey Drive, is lined with apartment buildings and a few homes. The misperception that it's within Lombard District 44 was so common that even the Lombard district's website shows it to be within its borders. The street actually is in Glen Ellyn Elementary District 89
