After an in-depth conversation between Board members and administrative leaders during a public meeting on Monday, July 29, 2013, the Board unanimously approved new long-range strategic goals and objectives for the district.  These goals and objectives were drafted by the independent research firm ECRA Group Inc.

D300 elementary schools are planning to conduct four additional “early release” dates this school year to support school improvement efforts, provide district-wide professional development for faculty, and continue implementing the new Common Core State Standards.  These four dates will be August 30, 2013;  October 31, 2013; February 5, 2014; and April 17, 2014.  Early release days occur on varying days of the week to reduce the impact on teacher planning time and on “specials” programming.

The Board of Education meeting orginally scheduled for Monday, June 22 has been changed to Monday, July 29 at 7:30 p.m. at Westfield Community School, 2100 Sleepy Hollow Road, Algonquin, IL.
