HAMMOND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
ARRANGES TOUR OF JORDAN
COMMUNITY ACADEMY TO VIEW THE
“COMER PROCESS”:
A local entourage of Hammond School Officials,
Purdue University, and Lakeshore Chamber members
recently toured 3 elementary schools in Chicago
(including the Jordan Community Academy; Chase
Elementary; and Dixon Elementary) to view firsthand the “Comer Process”. Created by East
Chicago’s own Dr. James Comer, Yale University,
the “Comer Process” provides a structure as well as a
process for mobilizing adults to support student
learning and overall development. It is a different
way of conceptualizing and working in schools, and
it replaces traditional school organizations and
anagement with an operating system that works for
schools and the students they serve. The School City
of Hammond is currently reviewing the “Comer
Process” in hopes of applying Dr. Comer’s techniques to Hammond Schools in the very near future.
STATE LEGISLATORS MANDATE 1%
INCOME TAX FOR LAKE COUNTY:
A last minute addition to Property Tax Legislation on
the final day of the legislative session, will force
Lake County to impose a 1% income tax next year,
and all proceeds will be dedicated to tax relief for
homeowners. If Lake County does not approve the
1% income tax (expected to generate approximately
$76 Million Dollars), county property tax levies will
be frozen, forcing cities, schools, and other taxing
units to continue operations without any new revenue
dollars. The 1% county income tax is expected to
significantly reduce the predicted budget shortfalls in
2010, when the tax cap takes full effect.
