The Board of Education will gather on Monday, May 20 at 7 pm at the Mikaelian Education Center for its monthly business meeting. During this meeting, the Community Review Committee (CRC) will present its final report titled “Harnessing the Power of Free Play to Advance Educational Outcomes” and share updated committee bylaws to the Board for review. The Board will also be presented with a student and staff planning report for the 2024-25 academic year and is expected to approve transportation contract renewals for both regular and special education. Additionally, the Board is expected to approve several fantastic new District 39 employees, including two Grade Level Administrators (GLAds) for Wilmette Junior High School.

Parent Education Event – Supporting School Transitions
As families begin to prepare for the conclusion of the 2023-24 school year AND look ahead to the 2024-25 school year, I want to encourage those who have students making school transitions this coming Fall to check out our most recent Parent Education recording titled “Supporting School Transitions.” This was a wonderful overview of the many ways in which our schools partner to support student and family transitions between schools. Whether you have a child moving from EC-K, 4th-5th, 6th-7th, or 8th to high school, this is a “must-watch” for any family! A recording of this presentation is now available. Please visit our D39 Parent Education website to find archived recordings of our wonderful and informative Parent Education events.
