As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I also find myself hitting an important milestone in my first year on the job. Thank you for your welcoming spirit, support, and encouragement during my first 100+ days as your Superintendent! I am grateful for each connection and conversation I have had with students, staff, families, and community members as I listen and learn about what is most important to our District 67 and District 115 communities.
A significant part of these early months has been focused on gathering qualitative feedback. Learning about the Lake Forest experience is critical to understanding what we are doing well and strategizing on initiatives for continued improvement. To date, I have met with more than 80 faculty and staff members and dozens of District and community groups. This input, gathered through one-on-one and small group conversations, has been immensely helpful and insightful.
It is also important for us to gather quantitative feedback and our recent Community Satisfaction Survey did just that. This study, conducted by professional polling firm Fallon Research, engaged a randomly-selected sample of our community including District parents/guardians and those residents who do not have students in our schools. These results (found here) allow us to better understand where we are today and what the community at large sees as priorities for District 67 and District 115 moving forward...
Consistent with schools throughout Lake County, we are currently experiencing an uptick in COVID-19 at DPM, with 14 positive cases since November 1. Please use this link to read this communication from Dr. Michelle Shinn.
