At last night’s Barrington 220 Board of Education meeting, district leaders provided the Board with an update on the district’s strategic planning process “Framework 220”.

Last month a group of 50 stakeholders representing business leaders, university leaders, parents, staff and students came together for Phase 2 of the process “Learner Profile Development”. A Learner Profile articulates the critical skills and competencies the district aspires to develop within its students.

This past weekend a group of about 100 stakeholders came together for a two-day Framework 220 Summit, which focused on the development of Barrington 220’s mission, vision and strategic priorities, as well as the Learner Profile.

Based on the feedback, district leaders presented this draft of a Learner Profile to the Board. The district will be seeking additional feedback from community members over the next few weeks. Stay tuned to learn how you can provide your feedback.

The first round of stakeholder feedback on the performance of Barrington School District 220 that officials say will help frame the district’s strategic plan offered a mix of praise and compliments, along with suggestions for improvements, consultants explained.

The educational consulting firm of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates gave a presentation to the school board at its April 5 meeting, discussing Phase 1 of the district’s “Framework 220.” The consultants reported on feedback collected from a combination of focus groups and community questionnaires from over 4,000 stakeholders.

According to the HYA presentation, the consultants conducted a mix of interviews and an online survey of 22 administrators, six school board members, 51 classified staff, 224 teachers and certified staff, 284 community members, 1,378 parents of students attending the school and 1,786 students.

Consultants said respondents wanted the district to consider a focus beyond college preparation and shared a concern about students in the “middle.” Some respondents also questioned whether the district was meeting the social and emotional needs of students, improving technology and communication as well as refining academic programs, according to the presentation.

Those queried were also asked about their support for a referendum to build a new fine arts center. Although 38% said they were undecided, another 24% of respondents said they would “likely support” a referendum while 20% reported they would strongly support such a referendum.

According to the report, respondents want the district to “focus on ‘well-rounded’ students, social emotional skills and a variety of student experiences in order to prepare for a variety of choices after high school.

Pepsi

The Pepsi facility is located just west of the CUSD 220 Administration Center on Main Street, and you can just picture Ficke-Bradford and Collister-Lazzari opening their coin purses with this news.

PepsiCo is closing its Barrington research and development facility, laying off 78 employees and transferring the rest of the 212 workers to other locations, the company said Wednesday.

The New York-based food and beverage giant will begin the layoffs June 24 and complete them by the end of September, according to a notice filed with the state Monday.
