Statement - April 26, 2018 - For Immediate Release

Contact: Jean Sophie, Superintendent of Schools - 847-234-9400

LAKE BLUFF, IL— Today, the Lake Bluff 65 School District Board of Education has learned that five former students have filed suit against the District based on claims of inappropriate behavior by Charles Ritz, who taught at Lake Bluff Junior High School between 1975 and 1985.

While the Lake Bluff School District 65 Board remains saddened by the painful events of over 30 years ago as described by these individuals, to fulfill our duty as fiduciaries on behalf of the District’s taxpayers, we will defend these claims in court and not in the public domain.

We want to reaffirm our commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of our students.  Our schools have a comprehensive system of practices, policies, procedures, and programs in place to help keep our students safe. Those protocols are reviewed annually and implemented rigorously.  We will continue to adopt and enforce all best practices within our control for the protection of our children.
