    February 21 - Focus Groups

    Search firm BWP & Associates will be holding open Focus Group conversations with the community on Thursday, February 21.

    • 2 p.m. at Central Services Office, 793 N. Main St. Glen Ellyn
    • 6:30 p.m. at Hadley Junior High School, 240 Hawthorne Blvd. Glen Ellyn

    To ensure that the entire community has the opportunity for equal involvement, the Board has decided to take the approach of holding two community based focus groups that will be open to everyone instead of choosing interest-based community focus groups that would only represent a subset of the community. All District 41 community members are welcome to attend. Additional smaller Focus Groups will also be scheduled on February 21 for staff, administration, building administration, union leadership, and Board members.
    More details will be provided soon.
