Students who returned to Lincoln K-8 School this month entered a drastically different environment, compared to last year.
Peoria District 150 allocated about $270,000 to implement the ELITE program at Lincoln last fall. That change, among others, is helping turn things around.
ELITE founder Carl Cannon says he and his colleagues were shocked by what they saw when they arrived at Lincoln last year. The scene was so chaotic, he called it a “Hollywood” School.
