Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
Dear District 20 Families and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year! We hope you had a wonderful summer and we are very excited to begin what we know will be a very successful school year! As District 20 enters into its second full year of implementation of a comprehensive strategic plan adopted by the Board of Education in March of 2016, we will implement our One to One Student Technology program providing a Chromebook for every student in grades 2-8. Our implementation during the 2017-2018 school year is a full year sooner that originally projected. We look forward to working with our students and families in providing a quality 21st Century Learning experience.
District 20 will also begin implementing our Social Emotional Learning plan. Each school has identified supports, resources, and programs which will best support the social emotional learning and development of our students.
This summer, the Board of Education established a new YouTube Channel and will post video recordings of its monthly meetings. Currently, recordings of the May, June, and August 2017 meetings have been posted. We invite you to visit the channel and view. Please click here to visit the channel.
We have many exciting things happening in District 20 and we look forward to working in cooperation with parents, families, and the community to ignite the power and potential of each student.
Dr. Michael Connolly
