D123 Community Participates in State of the District Dinner

Friday marked the Annual State of the District Dinner with nearly 200 attendees. Local business, dignitaries and the District 123 community joined together to provide feedback for the District’s new strategic plan.

“The State of the District Dinner is our annual event to connect with the entire Oak Lawn-Hometown community. Through a rich dialogue designed to engage participants and gather feedback, we hope to build trust and enrich perspectives of all District 123 partners and community members. The aim of our event is to provide a more direct outreach opportunity by expanding face to face and meaningful two-way engagement,” said Paul J. Enderle, Ed.D., Superintendent of District 123.

Attendees were immersed in the draft D123 Strategic Plan. Following a welcome address from Superintendent Paul J. Enderle, guests could text in questions to be answered by the leadership panel, then joined small groups to focus on each goal of the plan: whole child success, active learning, operational excellence, and community spirit.
