D97 Equity Policy - Community Engagement
The District 97 Board of Education is in the process of creating a policy that will not only formalize its steadfast commitment to equity but also guide the work being done by the schools and district on a daily basis to help every student learn, grow and achieve. The next step in this process is to engage the community in a dialogue about the policy in an effort to:
- Educate the residents of Oak Park about why the district is pursuing an equity policy, and what it hopes to accomplish through its creation and implementation;
- Answer questions about the policy (e.g., purpose, goals, etc.);
- Get feedback about how best to ensure that the policy accurately reflects and effectively addresses the needs of all children.
