The District 233 school board, on a 5-2 vote, agreed to purchase vehicles from Sutton Ford so that it can resume offering behind-the-wheel driver’s education to students at Homewood-Flossmoor High School.
H-F will purchase four Ford Fusion vehicles from the Olympia Fields dealership for $20,583 each, and pay $1,650 to have the special driver’s ed braking system installed in two of the cars. The high school owns that equipment.
District 233 school board members are working to reach an agreement on whether students should return to Homewood-Flossmoor High School in the fall for in-person learning with a hybrid model, or continue with all-remote learning.
They continue to solicit comments from parents. The board will meet remotely at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, to reach a decision on the matter.

The board will meet remotely as a Committee of the Whole at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, to decide a plan for the 2020-21 school year.
