D303 boasts a healthy budget and a high financial score of Recognition 4.0 rating but Administration continues to focus on Capital Projects and to grow administration. There should be more focus on student well-being and academic needs.
The Board does not hold the Superintendent accountable for academic improvement results. The Board and Superintendent have not created a long range strategic plan, executing the academic goals through action items.
The Superintendent has not presented academic data results by school and grade to show improvement and/or success for all students in all programs. Among Elementary and High schools, there is a significant difference in enrollment and academic performance. This imbalance must be addressed.
The Board needs to complete a Facility and Academic Usage Plan for all schools/buildings, according to all student needs and programs. D303 has an imbalance in enrollment and program offering. The Superintendent has not presented an enrollment analysis since he was hired in 2016. Some schools are underutilized/over utilized due to the lack of planning and making decisions in isolation building by building.
All the information and objective data we collect is directly from D303 from meeting presentations (Boardbook), Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), administrative staff, or Illinois State Board Of Education (ISBE). The accuracy of this information is as good as its source: District 303.
