WORK UNDERWAY ON COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT OUTCOMES
This past fall, District 34 teamed up with a group of local residents to launch an extensive community engagement program – 34Next: Community Views on Glenview 34 Schools. The purpose of the program was for District 34 to gain a deeper understanding of the community’s values and help further shape the district’s priorities for its future. Following four engagement sessions and much community feedback, a set of five recommendations were presented to the Board of Education in December and finalized in February. A review of these recommendations and information on how they are being addressed is listed below. As work continues, this will again be shared with the local community. View the full article here.
