Strategic Planning - We Need Your Input!
Dear Parents and Community Members,
As District 124 embarks on its long-range planning process beginning March 3rd, we need your input on two important issues whether you have formally volunteered to participate on the strategic planning committee or not. First, you are undoubtedly aware by now that Central Jr. High will officially become a "middle school" in the Fall of 2015. Renovation on the building will begin in May 2014. Once completed, we need to know what to call the new facility: some people think that "Central Jr. High" is too iconic a name to change, even if the philosophy of the school is middle school in nature. Others point to the fact that when they attended school here in the 1950's and '60s, it was called Evergreen Park School and would like to see a return to that traditional name. What do you think? Click here to take our quick, one-item survey and let us know what you think. Another important aspect of the planning process is to review the District's vision and mission statement; we'd like your feedback to see if the current statement, as written, still reflects the values of our community as it did five years ago when it was created. The long-range planning process will include a sub-committee that will review community feedback and make a recommendation to the Board of Education about a new mission statement. Please click here to share your feedback no later than Sunday, March 2nd.
