School District 91 is looking for participants for focus groups to be held in April. The District 91 Board of Education is interested in hearing from a broad-based sampling of our diverse community. The information gained from the focus groups will assist the Board of Education with identifying the core values of the community. In 2007, the District 91 Board of Education used a similar process to identify the current core values of the community. The current core values are as follows:
District 91 values innovative instructional strategies and programs that result in the continuous improvement of each individual child.
District 91 values open, honest and timely two-way communication with all constituents to promote involvement in the educational process.
District 91 values comprehensive character education, and social and emotional development that includes students, staff, families and communities.
District 91 values clean, safe, nurturing environments and facilities that support the continuous improvement of each individual child.
District 91 values the recruitment, hiring, continuous development and retention of highly qualified individuals who are representative of our diverse community and committed to the district’s mission, vision and goals.
District 91 values fiscally responsible planning that ensures resources are used appropriately to support district values and goals.
Holding the focus groups will allow District 91 to evaluate if the current core values are still what matter to the community. The core values will be updated, beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, to reflect the current values of the community. The District 91 Board of Education and administration will set goals and create strategies to accomplish those goals that reflect the current values of the community.
If interested in participating in a focus group, please fill out the demographic questionnaire. Participants will be randomly selected to represent as many demographics as possible. Participants who are selected and are involved in the focus groups will be compensated $100.00 for their time.
