Students at Libertyville and Vernon Hills high schools who are in danger of failing or considering dropping out will have the extra support of a new educational program next year.
Libertyville-Vernon Hills Area High School District 128 officials are developing a program to help at-risk students succeed in school.
"It's something we've been talking about for a number of years," said Joseph Wojtena, principal of Libertyville High School. "Now that we've completed the opening of Vernon Hills High School, we're trying to spend more of our time on curriculum, instruction and special programs."
