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.
Dan Bridges, Superintendent of Schools
