Board of Education Meeting
The Board of Education held its regular monthly business meeting last Monday. The Board was presented with the final report from the Community Review Committee (CRC) titled “Harnessing the Power of Free Play to Advance Educational Outcomes” and also reviewed updated CRC bylaws. The Board also reviewed the annual Student/Staff Planning Report for the 2024-25 academic year and approved transportation contract renewals for both regular and special education. Additionally, the Board approved several outstanding faculty and staff candidates for the 2024-25 academic year, including Jeffrey Batt and Robert Miller as new Grade Level Administrators at Wilmette Junior High School. Agendas and materials for all Board of Education meetings are available online.

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 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 presentation provides an 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! Please visit our D39 Parent Education website to find archived recordings of our wonderful and informative Parent Education events.
