Superintendent's September 2019 Update

students lined up on first day of school

September 2019

And we are off!  Where did summer go?!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to the 2019-20 school year. During the first few days of school, I have been at buildings greeting students and their families and touching base with our teachers, principals, and support staff. I could not be more excited about this year!

Each month, I plan to send out a brief update to keep you informed of many different things happening in the District. My goal is to keep open and transparent lines of communication with our D140 community. Please contact me at or 708-532-6462 with any questions or concerns.

I welcome any and all communication with you as we work in partnership to ensure that All Kids Can. By the way, All Kids Can is this year’s District theme. It embodies our commitment to work together to raise our test scores, meet the social emotional needs of our children, and grow in knowledge and readiness for all our educational challenges.

Don’t blink. It will be May before we know it!

Dr. Shawn Olson
