Important information from the Board of Education

Posted Aug 31, 2015 | Category: BOE

As you may have heard, the Board of Education of District 96 has launched a strategic planning process. We are gathering community input about what the District priorities and goals should be over the next five years.

The first step in this process is to survey the community. An online survey is now available on the District website (www.district96.org) and hard copy surveys are also available from the District by request. We encourage as many community members to respond  by September 15th as possible.

We would love your assistance in spreading the word about this survey! We would  truly like to get as much feedback from as many community members as possible.  If you can pass this information on to members of your PTA/O’s, any other community organizations and your neighbors, that would be very helpful.

Also, after the survey data has been gathered, we are looking for volunteers to participate in one of five focus groups.  Using the survey data as input, each focus group will work to identify the top District priorities in the areas of Instruction, Climate and Culture, Finance, Facilities, and Human Relations. The focus groups will meet in two sessions of roughly four hours each on the evenings of October 15th and 16th. 

If you or someone you know is interested in serving on a focus group, please contact our interim Superintendents Mr. Patrick Patt (pattp@district96.org  ) and Dr. Griff Powell (powellg@district96.org).

Thanks for your partnership and assistance!
