Please see the message below from our Superintendent and don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour this weekend, we don’t want anyone to be late on Monday.

MESSAGE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT

 

Dear CCSD 46 Families,

 

I am writing to inform you about work that has been occurring in our school district, and to in invite you to an upcoming community-wide remote meeting, which will take place at 7:00 pm on Monday, April 3, 2023.

Earlier this year, CCSD 46 determined we needed to have an in-depth review and discussion of our facilities as they relate to educational delivery and our strategic planning goals as a District. For many in our community, you may only see the outside of the buildings or select areas during performances, meetings or events. However, of course the buildings are even more complex than we see from the outside, and need to meet many needs to  provide appropriate environments for every one of our students, teachers and staff on a daily basis. In order to assist us with this process, the District has brought in Wold Architects and Engineers to facilitate this review and subsequent conversations. They are a nationally recognized firm in Educational Planning and Design and have worked with our District on projects previously so they have first-hand knowledge of our buildings.

Over the past months, Wold has been walking our schools and meeting with our District staff to gather data and information about our buildings. It is important to D46 that this process also engages our community at each phase. On April 3 we would like to ask you to participate in our first Community Meeting of the process where we will be reviewing the “Educational Adequacy” of our buildings and have the opportunity to add to the discussion. At this meeting you will hear about important aspects of the schools including:

  • Physical Conditions – what pending repairs and maintenance are needed

  • Capacity and Enrollment – the ability to accommodate the student population

  • Safety and Security – current approaches and considerations

  • Educational Alignment – how the spaces accommodate the many ways we teach

  • Activities and Community Use – how the buildings are used outside of school hours

This presentation will review both current conditions as well as areas that might be future considerations. While Wold can certainly provide perspective on current educational design and what may be important to consider, ultimately these are our schools and must reflect our own criteria and beliefs. This is the first phase of our process, and it is important that we have consensus in the community that we have gathered the appropriate information before the next phase where we will be developing Options and potential solutions for implementation, so it is critical that we hear from you.

This meeting will be an online event to allow for greater participation and the ability to record it for those who can’t attend that evening. We understand that everyone is very busy, and hopefully this format will allow you the least amount of disruption to be able to participate. We will also be using a tool called “Thought Exchange” to allow you to provide feedback and responses to ensure broad representation from the community in the process.

To attend this online meeting on Monday, April 3 at 7:00 pm, please go to this link , or join via zoom.us website and enter Meeting ID: 838 6275 1883. We hope that you will join us on Monday April 3 and help us continue this process with your voice.

Sincerely,

Dr. Lynn Glickman

Superintendent

 

MENSAJE DE NUESTRA SUPERINTENDENTE

 

Estimadas familias del CCSD 46

 

Les escribo para informarles sobre el trabajo que ha estado ocurriendo en nuestro distrito escolar, y para invitarlos a una próxima reunión a distancia de toda la comunidad, que se llevará a cabo a las 7:00 pm el lunes 3 de abril de 2023.

 

A principios de este año, CCSD 46 determinó que necesitábamos tener una revisión en profundidad y la conversación de nuestras instalaciones, ya que se relacionan con la entrega educativa y nuestros objetivos de planificación estratégica como un Distrito. Para muchos en nuestra comunidad, es posible que sólo vean el exterior de los edificios o áreas selectas durante las presentaciones, reuniones o eventos. Sin embargo, los edificios son mucho más complejos de lo que se ve desde fuera y deben satisfacer muchas necesidades para ofrecer un entorno adecuado a cada uno de nuestros alumnos, profesores y personal en su día a día. Para ayudarnos en este proceso, el Distrito ha contratado a Wold Architects and Engineers para facilitar esta revisión y las conversaciones posteriores. Son una empresa reconocida a nivel nacional en Planificación y Diseño Educativo y han trabajado con nuestro Distrito en proyectos anteriores por lo que tienen conocimiento de primera mano de nuestros edificios.

 

Durante los últimos meses, Wold ha recorrido nuestras escuelas y se ha reunido con el personal del Distrito para recopilar datos e información sobre nuestros edificios. Es importante para D46 que este proceso también involucre a nuestra comunidad en cada fase. El 3 de abril nos gustaría pedirle que participe en nuestra primera reunión de la comunidad del proceso en el que se revisará la “adecuación educativa” de nuestros edificios y tener la oportunidad de añadir a la discusión. En esta reunión usted escuchará sobre aspectos importantes de las escuelas incluyendo:

  • Condiciones físicas – qué reparaciones y mantenimiento pendientes son necesarios

  • Capacidad y matriculación – la capacidad de acomodar a la población estudiantil

  • Seguridad – enfoques y consideraciones actuales

  • Alineación educativa: cómo se adaptan los espacios a las distintas formas de enseñar.

  • Actividades y uso comunitario: cómo se utilizan los edificios fuera del horario escolar.

 

Esta presentación repasará tanto las condiciones actuales como las áreas que podrían considerarse en el futuro. Si bien es cierto que Wold puede ofrecer una perspectiva sobre el diseño educativo actual y lo que puede ser importante tener en cuenta, en última instancia estas son nuestras escuelas y deben reflejar nuestros propios criterios y creencias. Esta es la primera fase de nuestro proceso, y es importante que tengamos consenso en la comunidad que hemos reunido la información adecuada antes de la siguiente fase en la que vamos a desarrollar Opciones y posibles soluciones para la aplicación, por lo que es fundamental que escuchemos de usted.

 

Esta reunión será un evento en línea para permitir una mayor participación y la capacidad de grabarlo para aquellos que no pueden asistir esa noche. Entendemos que todo el mundo está muy ocupado y esperamos que este formato le permita participar con el menor número de interrupciones. También utilizaremos una herramienta llamada “Thought Exchange” para que pueda aportar sus comentarios y respuestas y garantizar así una amplia representación de la comunidad en el proceso.

 

Para asistir a esta reunión en línea el lunes 3 de abril a las 19.00 horas, vaya a este enlace , o únase a través del sitio web zoom.us e introduzca Meeting ID: 838 6275 1883. Esperamos que nos acompañe el lunes 3 de abril y nos ayude a continuar este proceso con su voz.

Atentamente,

 

Dr. Lynn Glickman

Superintendente
