Community Review Committee

communityThe Community Review Committee (CRC) serves in an advisory capacity to Wilmette Public Schools District 39 Board of Education to research specific topics that will lead to improvements in teaching, learning or managing the District’s operations. In the fall, the CRC selects one or more topics of interest to the community that its members believe hold the promise of leading to improvements in District 39. During the year, the CRC members work on committees to study the topics and understand the situation in District 39 (often with administrative support and IT support from the District and other key groups, including the Wilmette Education Association). The CRC then develops its recommendations, and makes a presentation to the Board of Education in June. The Superintendent of Schools then offers thoughts regarding the presentation and recommendations in late summer, and the Board determines how to proceed early in the following school year.

The CRC is comprised of parents (typically two representing each of the schools in the district, and invites parents in the parochial schools in the district to participate as well), administrators (including the superintendent), teachers and citizens. The Board of Education has a representative who participates in CRC meetings. The CRC began in 1973 in response to a state mandate for more citizen involvement in education, and its role and composition have evolved based upon the needs and interests of the community.

At the February 24, 2020 Board of Education meeting, the Board approved the Consortium for Educational Change (CEC) to be the District's strategic planning facilitator to guide and define the strategic planning process through a multi-year plan. The CRC's role for the 2020-21 school year will shift to an advisory group to directly support the District 39's strategic planning process. Therefore, CRC's membership will not include any district employees as in previous years.
