Intermediate District 287 brings new approaches to new school year
With a growing demand for its services, Intermediate District 287 is rolling out a variety of new approaches this year to meet the needs of its students and teachers.
The district welcomed its staff back for the 2015-16 school year at the beginning of the month, and students began filling classrooms Sept. 8.
“Everybody is always excited at back-to-school time, but I think this year especially, people are excited about our new strategic plan and some of the emphasis we’re having on supporting our staff,” said D287 Supt. Sandy Lewandowski.
The school board approved the district’s strategic plan for 2015-2020 in June. It is focused on increasing student outcomes and increasing racial equity for all students. Teams are currently working on recommendations for implementation.
