It's been another great week of making connections and engaging with the community. 
I continued my tour of partner school parent organization meetings, which I do twice per year to assure the lines of communication are open between families of future Eagles, Chargers and Tbolts. I also met with my Student Advisory at Stagg, as part of monthly meetings with students at each of the high schools. This morning I attended a legislative breakfast with several of our elected officials, as well as Illinois State Board of Education Chairman James Meeks and Illinois State Superintendent Dr. Tony Smith. 
Read below for information about two special events the District hosted this week, as well.
Realtor Breakfast
We held a Realtor Breakfast this week in order to tell the District 230 story to the real estate professionals who work with potential students' families. More than 20 industry leaders attended the event.

The Principals and I shared highlights about our district and schools. Carla Erdey shared resources they could use as they sell homes in the community. Included was a demonstration of the new interactive map that pinpoints which school an address is assigned to. Our hope is that this map will help alleviate confusion sometimes experienced by buyers. 

The Realtors shared their appreciation for the outstanding reputation our schools have garnered. Being in District 230 certainly is attractive to potential residents.

S4 Summit: CTE
This week we also hosted the next installment of our Successful Schools - Successful Students (S4) Summit. The focus was on career and technical preparation as nearly 50 representatives from local skilled trades, manufacturing and related employers, School Board members, administrators, and teachers met. 

School Board President Rick Nogal, Director of Curriculum Dr. Stacey Gonzales and I shared an overview of the district, current CTE offerings and the ongoing visioning process. The bulk of the evening was spent in table discussions with industry leaders, division chairs and teachers to pinpoint the skills needed for success in these fields as well as channels of communication and hiring processes. 

It was a great night of making connections and learning from the experts to help us better prepare students for their future.
