Focus 205 Community Engagement Final Report


To: Board of Education, Elmhurst District 205

From: Focus 205 Facilitating Team

Re: Focus 205 Statements of Recommendation

Since the spring of 2015, we have been serving as a team of individuals to facilitate a community engagement program initiated and sanctioned by you, the District 205 Board of Education. We have taken this task very seriously because we realize our work has significant implications for the future of our students and our community. We have spent approximately 40 hours in actual meeting time that included twelve Focus 205 Facilitating Team meetings, six community-wide sessions and one focus group evening, not to mention the time individual members have devoted in preparation for the meetings and other activities related to promoting the community sessions and review of related materials—PowerPoint presentations, verbatim and executive summary documents.
