Back-to-School Family Survey - RESPOND BY 7/17

We are seeking your feedback as we plan for returning to school. Please complete our anonymous Back-to-School Family Survey to help us understand our families' needs and concerns as we plan for what school will look like for our community in the fall.

Please respond by Friday 7/17 so that we can consider your feedback during our planning process.


Sign-Up Now for Your Residency Verification Appointment

Residency requirements have been modified this year, and require scheduling an appointment for an in-person visit to your school.

Only families who are new to the district, new preschool students, or families who have students entering Kindergarten or 6th Grade must demonstrate that they live within District boundaries (even if you have proven residency in prior years).  Returning students not in one of those categories do not need to prove residency this year.

Back to School - Safe & Healthy! Fall 2020

Future Ready Learning Spaces

District 20 is working hard this summer on several construction projects to create Future Ready Learning Spaces for our students.  The projects include renovations in the libraries at Waterbury and Spring Wood, as well as upgrading some of our classrooms.  We cannot wait to share these exciting new spaces with our students and families this Fall!  Keep an eye on the Construction Updates to see how the work progresses!
