    February is the month for friendship and love, and one of the things we love about our school is the great diversity we have and appreciate in our school.  We continue to celebrate our diversity and work as a staff to meet the social emotional and academic needs of each student.  This year our staff has been participating in professional learning about math instruction in our classrooms.  On February 2nd Dan Finkel, a math consultant, will be working with several of our grade levels.  Dan has devoted much of his life to understanding and teaching the motivation, history, aesthetics, and deep structure of mathematics.  His goal is to give everyone a chance to fall in love with mathematics.  Please click on the links below to see what our teachers have been learning:

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
     
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
     
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
     
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
