In early 2019, the District 97 Board of Education adopted an equity policy that seeks to promote a strong sense of belonging in all of our schools, and is aimed at ensuring that every student we serve has access to an excellent and equitable education. We know that we cannot achieve equity without effectively engaging all of our students, staff, families and community members. As part of our renewed commitment to keep stakeholders informed and engaged, we are excited to introduce our new communications campaign, "MyD97."
As part of our "MyD97" campaign, we will use social media and our new "Weekly Wrap-Up" newsletter to share regular updates on the district's equity work and ways that the community can get involved.
Do you know someone—a teacher, staff member, parent, student or community member—who is helping to make D97 a better place for all? CLICK HERE to share their story and nominate them for a "Making MyD97 Better" Award!
Each month, an individual will be selected, and will receive a gift card for a local business—plus they’ll be highlighted on the district website and social media pages. The great work being done shouldn’t be a secret. Let’s share and celebrate it as part of “MyD97.”
Social Media Ambassadors
District 97 is seeking social media ambassadors who are willing to share news and information about our efforts to support all students. Whether you are sharing posts from our Facebook or Twitter pages or shouting out a teacher or student, being a social media ambassador is great way to be part of the "MyD97" campaign and support District 97 schools! If you are interested in being an ambassador for the 2019-20 school year, please complete our online form. If you have any questions, please email the district's director of communications, Amanda Siegfried, at [email protected].
