Dear Parents and Community Members,

We have had a very positive start to the school year. The COVID and construction challenges are behind us, and it has been great to see our students and staff back and working together without those burdens.

After a 5+ year journey that included the involvement of a 27-member Community Facility Task Force, the development of a long-range facility improvement plan, our communities supporting an $18.5 million referendum and the pursuit of $23.5 million worth of improvements to our school district’s facilities, we have officially crossed the finish line!  We are planning to recognize our Task Force members and to provide public tours of the facilities in December.

Great things happen for our schools when we open the door for community members to share their voices when developing solutions. The facility improvement journey is a prime example of this. Our school district recognizes that we could not have achieved what we achieved without the involvement of and support from our community.

This winter, our school district will be providing another significant opportunity for community members to join us at the table to help develop solutions to guide the future direction of our schools. We will be working to update and revise our strategic plan. As we pursue this work, I encourage you to watch for opportunities to share your voice and to get involved by providing your input to help shape our schools’ future priorities.

You can review the most recent version of our plan (2020-2023) and previous plans at:  https://www.scschools.net/page/6351.

St. Charles Public Schools is a great place to learn and work. We greatly appreciate your continued support of our schools!
