Evanston Township High School District 202 issued the following announcement on Oct. 8.
The ETHS District 202 Board of Education is hosting two events during the 2019-20 school year to discuss progress since the adoption of District goals and how the Board manages the work of the goals. Community Conversations with the ETHS Board will take place from 7:00pm to 8:30pm on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center and Thursday, January 23, 2020 at the Levy Center. Both events are open to the public.
The D202 Board adopted the 2017-2022 District Goals in May 2016 with input from ETHS students, parents/guardians, staff, and community members. In conjunction with the Board’s Equity & Excellence Mission Statement, the goals are designed to close academic achievement gaps and prepare all students for success after high school.
“Community feedback has been so instrumental in bringing clarity and focus to our equity work,” said ETHS D202 Board president Pat Savage-Williams. “In order to strengthen our partnership with community members and organizations, we want to continue to engage the community and hear from stakeholders to support the policies and programs impacting all ETHS students every day.”
The policies and goals of the school board are designed to enhance equity, belonging, and well-being for all ETHS students. ETHS families and community members will have an opportunity to learn about the role of the ETHS D202 Board, hear an update on the implementation of the District’s Goals, and share perspectives on this work.
Registration is not required to attend the Community Conversations events. The Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center is located at 1655 Foster St, Evanston, IL 60201. The Levy Center is located at 300 Dodge Ave, Evanston, IL 60202. Spanish language interpretation will be available.
