Strategy Team Meetings 2016-17
Participate in the Strategy Team Meetings
Posted on 09/02/2016

Strategy Team MeetingEach year, School District 197 provides opportunities for our parents and community members to engage in dialogue around the Strategic Framework and the six goals that have been identified by the school board as priorities for growth and development.

These meetings seek to gather a wide range of input regarding the district’s current initiatives and future direction. The feedback from parents and area residents helps the school board and administrators ensure they are advancing programs in a way that meets the needs and expectations of the community.
