It is back to school time at Naperville Community Unit School District 203! This year, some of the exciting changes that began last school year are continuing throughout the school district. We are excited to get back to learning.
 
As you know during 2015-2016 school year, the Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) provided every high school student with a Chromebook loaded with Google Apps for Education (GAFE).  DLI has expanded to the junior high school level this year, with each junior high student receiving a Chromebook with GAFE, and piloting continues at the elementary level. Again this summer, professional learning and collaboration among the junior high school teachers, administration and staff took place in preparation for the launch of DLI in our junior highs. 
 
After last year’s successful event, the District is again hosting a Welcome to 203 Picnic at Naperville North High School on August 28th from 2-4 pm. This is an opportunity to connect with new families in the District while meeting representatives from all our schools and dozens of community organizations. 
 
We know we are an excellent school district because of our community support and business partners, who collaborate with us and provide avenues for our students to learn outside the classroom. We are all in this together to provide our students with the best possible educational experience. Your advocacy for children and your commitment to a high-quality public education results in a high-achieving school district that continues to be a draw to our community. We Are 203!
 
Welcome back to school! I look forward to a great 2016-2017 school year with many accomplishments to share with our community throughout the year. 
 
Sincerely,
Dan Bridges, Superintendent of Schools 

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
     
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
     
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
     
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
