Superintendent Highlights

Superintendent Dr. Keisha Campbell shared a Recap of the 2023 State of the District 
We had the opportunity to connect with so many community members as we gathered for the State of the District Address on November 1.  

There is so much to celebrate in D205 and I was proud to share the many accomplishments of our students and staff from the past year. As mentioned many times over the last month, we have made significant progress in elevating student achievement and there is certainly a lot to celebrate.  Concurrently, we recognize that there is still work to be done and I could not be more confident in our team, with the support of the Board of Education, to continue along our journey of elevating student growth and achievement. I am excited to continue this great work along with our administration, building leaders and staff in partnership with the entire community. 

Anyone that was unable to attend the event can still watch it by visiting our District YouTube page @ElmhurstD205 or by visiting the community Connections page on our website
