Bernie's Books Come to District 20

Fall 2019

Each and every student in Keeneyville District 20 from Preschool through 6th Grade received a full bag of books to add to their very own home library this Fall.  Bernie's Book Bank donates free books to qualified schools twice a year to encourage literacy and help build home libraries for students.  The kids were so excited to receive their OWN bookos and we are grateful to Bernie's Books for their generous and heartfelt work!

District 20 Joins Collaborative Community Visioning Initiative

Keeneyville District 20 has joined efforts with other community partners in what is likely to be the most extensive public engagement process ever undertaken in Roselle.  Community leaders have collaborated to create the Envision Roselle Task Force to identify a desired long-term future for the community. The group will engage residents, business owners, local not-for-profits, and other stakeholders to find out what their shared goals and important priorities are, and how to make them into a reality that shapes Roselle for the next 30 years.

The Envision Roselle Task Force will gather data from stakeholders in a variety of ways this fall, including during a public forum on November 6, 2019, at Lake Park High School West Campus, 500 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., starting at 7:00 p.m. This session will be open to all members of the community and will employ a keypad voting system that allows participants to provide real-time feedback.
 


Stakeholders will also be invited to provide feedback to the task force through planned focus groups and a community survey that is currently being developed for the effort.

Initiated by the Village of Roselle as part of its 2018-2021 strategic plan, the Envision Roselle community visioning project includes Keeneyville District 20, as well as other partners from Lake Park High School District 108, Medinah School District 11 Roselle School District 12, IL, Bloomingdale School District 13, Roselle Public Library District, Roselle Park District, Medinah Park District, and Bloomingdale Park District. All of these partner organizations provide direct services to Roselle residents, and their participation will help ensure that long-term goals best reflect the wants and needs of the community.

The Envision Roselle Task Force timeline calls for citizen feedback to be gathered this fall, followed by data analysis, and a final report to the community in March 2020.

This collaboration includes community members, arts and educational organizations, and families to support students to maintain academic gains made during the school year, focusing on reading comprehension, math concepts, and social-emotional growth. The performing arts engage the children to express themselves and their ideas, bridging their development as thoughtful and creative thinkers.
