Message from the Superintendent


Happy Spring!

While many of you may think of the school year as winding down, my senior leadership team is actually in full blown planning mode for 2018-19.

Next year the District will move to a standards-based report card at all of its elementary schools.  Currently, the District is piloting standards-based reporting at Hawthorne and Field Schools. Special thanks goes out to teachers at those schools who have worked hard to get this project off the ground.  A detailed plan is in place for training teachers, beginning this spring, and more specific information will be communicated to parents through the building principals.

I am pleased to inform everyone that the two-way Spanish Dual Language immersion program, scheduled to begin in kindergarten at Fischer Elementary School in Fall 2018, is at capacity. This is quite an accomplishment in year one.

The administration and a variety of consultants presented information to the Board of Education on January 27, February 24, and February 27 on draft concepts that could form the basis of a Master Facilities Plan. The District is forming a Community Advisory Team that will assist our core planning team in communicating the ideas to the community at large.

Be sure to follow my blog for the latest information on the various instructional priorities in D205.

As a national leader in future ready learning, D205 is committed to a culture of innovation that will ensure that all students graduate college, career and life ready.
