THE DIXON SCHOOL BOARD IS LOOKING FOR FIVE COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT COMMUNITY-SCHOOL RELATIONS TO SERVE ON A BRAND NEW COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT COMMITTEE. We are making community engagement a top priority in our district’s vision, because a proactive and ongoing conversation with our school community—including families, businesses, and civic and social groups—is essential for thriving schools. Specifically, we want to better listen to and understand the community’s aspirations for education, to advocate for those desires in district decision-making, and to clearly inform the community of the district’s performance. Members of the Community Engagement Committee will shape how we actively collaborate with all stakeholders in the community about the direction and day-to-day functioning of our schools. This committee will meet from 3:30-4:30 PM on the second Tuesday of the month, beginning on January 14th, 2020. Child care will be provided. If you are interested, please contact the district’s Central Office at 815-284-7722. You can also email our Board representatives of your interest in serving on this committee. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
All Dixon Public Schools will be closed on 11/27, 11/28 & 11/29 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday, December 2nd.
