    On Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:00 p.m., District 200 will host a State of Our Schools presentation at Hubble Middle School. 

    The State of Our Schools presentation kicks off the District's community engagement efforts of the school year: Planning for Our Future, and will be the first of four community engagement sessions.

    On September 23, Superintendent Jeff Schuler will provide an update on student achievement, support systems, technology, district finances and our 23 facilities. Last school year, the District began a facility master planning effort and we need your feedback and input to identify community priorities to guide planning for the future of our schools and buildings.  
     
    Board President Jim Vroman looks forward to a very productive community engagement effort this year. "My hope is that our residents have meaningful dialogue with our Board, Administration and other community members regarding District issues, challenges and opportunities, especially as it relates to our facilities. Anyone in our community who is interested in having an impact on the future of our schools is encouraged to attend.”  
     
    Join District 200 for a presentation in Hubble's auditorium followed by conversation in the commons. For questions, please contact communications@cusd200.org or 630-682-2000.
     
    Next Week - Middle School Parenting Seminar
    What's your child's digital footprint? Today's youth have integrated the use of digital devices into their daily lives and utilize social media apps to communicate with the world around them. Technology integration that encourages social interaction and self-expression presents new opportunities for youth, while at the same time challenging parents and teachers as we work together to keep youth healthy and safe. Join us, along with the Internet Safety Specialist from the Attorney General's Office, as we continue our efforts to protect and educate our children.
