Niles super: 'We listened to the community'


NILES — Schools Superintendent Rocco Adduci reversed course Thursday and announced that the visitor stands at Bo Rein Stadium will not be demolished as part of construction plans for the new high school.

One month ago, Adduci had said he was going along with the district’s core construction committee, which had recommended demolition.

Instead, building plans for the new adjacent high school have been altered to accommodate the stadium.

“We had a number of residents opposed to demolishing the stands and we listened to the community,” Adduci said.

The district also eliminated fees for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
