At their Nov. 13, the Lyons- Brookfield School District 103 Board of Education voted 5 to 0 to remove 13 students who officials say did not live within the District 103 boundaries. 

The vote came after an investigation by the firm National Investigations, which handles residency issues for the district.

The firm has been reviewing all district students this year, and more investigations are ongoing.

"This year they actually had everyone prescreened through National Investigations," Hubacek said.

Baker says that she expects more students to be removed from the district in the near future as more investigations wrap up.

"That was only the first step," Baker said. "We're going to have more. I'm anticipating probably 20 to 30 more."

Mikhail Hike & Igor Kalinin They go after the parents to pay back to the school for the time they were at the school. Whether they actually pay the school I don't know.

@Mikhail I dont disagree. BUT... I would like to see strict fines associated with this. Not just some slap on the hand! These are OUR tax dollars, and registering your kid for a school that's not yours is theft. It may not be the child's fault, but at the same time, putting together a plan, and spoon feeding everyone costs a lot of money. This should all be on the parents. We cannot be a nanny city. we already have a nanny government, and nanny state.. its time for some accountability.

I do not oppose removing the students. However, there should a plan in place where the students are transitioned into an appropriate school. We shouldn't punish children for their parents' mistakes.
