Next Engage 204 on Dec. 7

The second Engage 204 session takes place December 7 from 7 to 9 pm at Still Middle School, 787 Meadowridge Drive, Aurora. This session will focus on "Changing Enrollment: Balancing Buildings and Boundaries."

Engage 204 is a collaborative process between the community and District 204 to ensure a strong future for the district and its students. The community engagement sessions explore different aspects of the district, including, enrollment, district finances, and other key issues involved in maintaining a successful educational experience for students. Key to the success of this process is the collaboration and discussion between participants. District residents who attend will have the unique opportunity to share ideas and discuss topics in small groups in order to provide feedback to the Board of Education. Key findings and recommendations will be presented to the Board of Education by July 2018. All District 204 residents are invited to participate in Engage 204.

RSVP is appreciated, but not required at
