ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Southern Illinois University system's new president says he understands feelings of betrayal surrounding his planned departure from Ohio's Youngstown State just seven months into that job.
 
But Randy Dunn says that as a former Illinois schools chief who once worked at SIU in Carbondale, he believes critics eventually will appreciate his chance to return to where he calls his home.
 
The SIU board on Monday introduced Dunn as Glenn Poshard's successor.
 
Dunn's three-year contract at Youngstown State requires him to give 180 days notice that he's leaving that job. That would take him through mid-August, though it's unclear if that university's board will hold him to that.
 
As an Ohio state lawmaker from Youngstown, Rep. Bob Hagan, says Dunn's abrupt departure leaves that university and region hurt and disappointed.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Officials with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, or DESE are due to make recommendations on how to improve failing school districts today. Officials have been examining six proposals.

 

One plan continues the current system of allowing students to transfer out of failing districts with the district footing the bill. Another proposal would allow students to transfer to better schools inside their own district. And yet another plan would eliminate failing districts and allow them to become independent.

It may not feel like it quite yet, but campers and boaters planning ahead may need to know the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is considering closing another campsite on Table Rock Lake.

 

The corps announced Monday that the Viney Creek Recreation Area near Golden, Mo. is the targeted site. Lake manager Greg Oller says federal funding for Table Rock was reduced $600,000 this year. The rec area faces a problem in that it doesn't have a commercial marina. Viney Creek does offer campsites, a playground area and swimming area.

 

Oller says boaters will have seven other nearby public areas to use to gain access to Table Rock Lake.
