Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

This week, in response to the tragic and heartbreaking killing of George Floyd, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lane Abrell issued this statement about District 202’s diversity, commitment to cultural competency and opposition to racism.

Now, here is this week’s selection of D. 202 news and information:

This Week's Highlights


  • It is more important than ever that Will County gets its full share of federal funds. YOU CAN HELP! Please complete the 2020 Census. It’s very simple!

Households should have received a letter with a personalized, 12-digit Census ID code.

Go to http://my2020census.gov, use that code to sign in, and you’re all set!

Census data help determine our legislative representation in Congress and our share of $675 billion in federal funding.


Thank you in advance for doing your part!



  • The Board of Education will meet in regular session on Monday, June 8, 2020. Board members will participate remotely in this meeting. Here is the agenda.

Week in Review


These District 202 social media posts got the most attention and feedback this week:
instagram image from instagram District 202 proudly champions our diversity. Since 1990 our community has experienced tremendous racial, ethnic and socioeconomic change. Racially, demographically, and socio-economically, today's District 202 is very similar to our society. We strive through our curriculum, hiring and professional development to encourage and support empathy and compassion for, and inclusion of people of all races, ethnicities, backgrounds and life experiences. Likewise, we strongly oppose racism, discrimination and bullying of any kind. Like the world around us, we are not perfect, but we are committed to doing better, and doing our best, every day for all our students and families. And with your valued support we will continue to prepare learners for the future. Visit http://www.psd202.org/page/district-diversity for more on our committment to diversity. #202proud #diversityandinclusion

facebook image from facebook Betsey Vinson, president of CAPE (the committee for the Coordination of Administration and Parents Groups for Educational Efficiency) received an Award of Excellence as part of the 2020 Distinguished Service Awards Program sponsored by the Illinois Chapter of the National School Public Relations Association or INSPRA. The statewide awards honor those whose efforts have enhanced education and conveyed its importance to the community on behalf of their schools and districts. INSPRA recognized Vinson in the Parent category for her role as CAPE president and for being a vocal champion for District 202 schools. Award winners usually are honored with a luncheon in the spring. INSPRA is developing an alternate plan to honor them due to the COVID-19 pandemic. #202proud CAPE Organization

Thank You


The name of the teacher in last week's banner photo was incorrect. The teacher was Creekside Elementary School’s Grace Zepeda. We apologize for the error.

With that, thank you for your continued support of our students and staff.


Please stay well and be safe.

Have a good weekend.
