This month, we are spotlighting our cornerstone of INTEGRITY.

We would like to celebrate and recognize those individuals who consistently demonstrate integrity through their words and actions. If you have someone that you believe should be recognized for their example of integrity, please share that with us by going to https://d93.org/integrity.

Proposed Policy Changes

At their regular meeting on January 11th, the Board will consider approving two important policies: our COVID and Respiratory Illness Response Plan and our Emergency School Closures policy. If you would like to provide your input on either of these, you may use the link below. These comments will be sent to the Board on Friday. You may also share comments during the public input session of the Board meeting on Wednesday or send written comments to Sam WIlliams, Board Clerk, to be read to the Board during the public input session.

D93 News

Happy Birthday D93 News!

D93 News started on January 5, 2015 when Samantha Williams came up with the idea for the weekly newscast during Christmas break. The flagship program for our communications team has had millions of views since its launch. Phil and Sam have many other responsibilities with the district but this is probably their most visible task each week.

D93 is committed to keeping our community in the loop through innovative communications such as D93 News, the Weekly Family Update, D93 Live, the We are D93 podcast and other platforms.
