MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202

Hello Education Partners,

Welcome to the Second Semester!

Hope you have had a good first week back to school. Here is today’s District 202 news and information:


As well, community members can also comment during the “Citizen Comments” portion of the regular Board of Education meeting on January 22, 2018. The Board is expected to vote on January 22, 2018.


This year’s Great Read-related events include an evening of stories about Dr. King’s childhood (February 1st); the Great Read Art Contest for artist of all ages; and a performance of Civil Rights-era music (February 28th.)

  • For the remainder of January, the Jon Balke Student Art Gallery is proud to feature works from Crystal Lawns, Eichelberger, Ridge and Thomas Jefferson elementary schools; Drauden Point and John F. Kennedy middle schools; and the Bonnie McBeth Early Learning Center. Please check out the gallery the next time you are at the District Administrative Center.
  • The Board of Education recently approved the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school year calendars. These are posted in English and Spanish on the District 202 website under “District Calendars”.
  • District 202 will offer limited full-day kindergarten again next year. We expect that a lottery will be held in February after the attendance zone process is done.
