D97 State of the District 2019-20: Trimester 1

Image: State of the District Report, Trimester 1 2019-20The 2019-20 school year is well underway, and we are so proud of all the wonderful things that are happening in support of our students, staff and schools.

This fall, we reaffirmed our commitment to advancing the district’s vision of creating a positive learning environment for all students that is equitable, inclusive and focused on the whole child. We shared our FY20 Collective Action Plan and individual school improvement plans, which not only support the implementation of our new equity policy, but also help promote greater transparency around the work being done to achieve our goals. We also embarked on a new Communication and Community Engagement Plan, which reflects our commitment to keep the community informed and engaged around the district’s equity work.

We have produced a State of the District video (see below) and report, which includes district-level highlights from Trimester 1 and information about our next steps for Trimester 2 and beyond. We will continue to provide opportunities for the community to share their thoughts and ideas on our equity work through future community feedback sessions and surveys, and we invite you to share your thoughts via our Let’s Talk page (http://bit.ly/D97LetsTalk).
