WHEATON – The committee behind Engage200, Community Unit School District 200's community engagement initiative, has formally announced the topics and dates of its remaining meetings.

Though possible subjects of discussion have been publicly addressed previously, committee co-chair Liz Corry said topics were narrowed down after feedback from the first meeting in January.

After Wednesday's upcoming session involving student achievement, the final four will cover:

• March 26 – Programs and services such as extracurricular activities and education programming

• April 16 – 21st century learning environments, including technology in the classroom and facility issues

May 7 – Finance

June 18 – Summary meeting

About 450 people attended the first Engage200 session, according to the district. Among these were a large number of residents who don't currently have children enrolled in district schools.

Corry credited this early success to fellow committee members, including district staff and community members.

"They really have done a lot of behind the scenes work," she said. "They are the people that are there hanging out, passing things and really worked really hard to make what happens in the community engagement sessions meaningful."
