Bourbonnais schools back to full days; teachers

By Stephanie Markham

BOURBONNAIS — The Bourbonnais School Board approved the 2020-23 teachers contract and heard about the first day back to regular in-person school hours during a Tuesday evening meeting.

The union declined to release the vote total but reported that it was “close to unanimous.”
