Plan to attend Focus 205 Community Engagement Session #6, Vision for the Future, scheduled for Wednesday, February 1, from 7 to 9 PM in the York High School Commons. Results of the fall Thoughtexchange survey will be shared, along with facility scenarios to address District 205's needs for the next 50 years, including a discussion of Lincoln and Field elementary schools, all-day kindergarten and increased STEM opportunities for our students. RSVPs appreciated, but not required. Childcare available for ages 3-12.

Through the Focus 205 series of meetings, community members have the opportunity to help shape the direction of the District by providing input regarding key issues that need to be addressed. Only with diverse and informed voices can an effective master plan for our District be created, implemented and executed.

This year’s “Coffee With the Superintendent” opportunities are again being organized by the PTA Council and are open to any interested District 205 parent or community resident.
