Welcome New Teachers!

At the September Board Meeting, it is a tradition to introduce and welcome all of the new teachers to Keeneyville School District 20.  Principals from each school introduced each new teacher to the board, sharing a little about their background and their role in our district.  It is a great time to meet the new staff face-to-face and welcome them to the Keeneyville D20 Family!

Board Meeting Highlights

  • The Board approved consent agenda items including routine financial and personnel reports.  Other consent agenda items included the following items:  EIS Administrator and Teacher Salary and Benefits Report for FY23, and the policies presented in August for first read.
  • The board approved several additional items, including the 2023-2026 Strategic Plan which was presented at the August Board Meeting.

    • On October 3, our School Board will be recognized during the IASB Fall Division Meeting for engaging in activities that lead to excellence in local school governance in support of quality public education.  Only 45 boards in Illinois will receive this School Board Governance Recognition this year.  We are proud of District 20's Board of Education and all of their accomplishments!
