Naperville Community Unit School District 203 believes an exemplary school district is the result of a collective partnership of students, staff, parents and community.

Throughout our schools, students are benefitting from the guidance and mentorship of local professionals through our Business Partnership program. Partnerships are happening in our classrooms at all age levels, from guest speakers, to classroom projects, to work alongside local businesses.
Small businesses and multi-national corporations are sharing their diverse business experiences to provide our students with unique and authentic learning experiences that promote skills to ensure college and career readiness.
On February 9th, we held our annual Exemplary Business Partnership Awards to celebrate those that embody our mission and beliefs by partnering with Naperville 203 to advance our curriculum, providing mission-driven, and transformational engagement opportunities for our students. This year’s award recipients were RR Donnelley, who hosted six students through their summer internship program; the City of Naperville, for their summer internship program; RPC Leadership and Edgewood Clinical Services for their work and sponsorship of our Student Leadership Institute; and the Lisle Library and Literacy DuPage for their English Language Learner support for Ann Reid Early Childhood Center families. 
More exciting partnerships are continuing throughout the school year. This semester, Naperville Central and Naperville North High School Architecture students are redesigning the Iroquois Shopping Center along the East Ogden Corridor. They are working alongside representatives of the City of Naperville and the Naperville Development Partnership to revitalize the area with shops, dining, residential, and open space.
We’re proud to celebrate the inspiration and impact of collaboration between businesses and education in Naperville 203! Whether it is speaking to a class or hosting an intern or somewhere in-between, we know that the expertise of our local business professionals can help our students better prepare for their future.

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
