Define 109
  • Define 109 is an initiative to refresh the mission and vision of Deerfield Public Schools District 109, and then create a strategic plan to get us where we want to go. In this listening phase, we want to hear from you. The voice of every student, staff member, parent/guardian, and community member matters in forming this definition.
    In October, survey feedback was collected from hundreds of middle school students and our staff. We held one virtual and three in-person community feedback opportunities as well. In November we launched the first of two ThoughtExchange opportunities that will help shape the vision work that lies ahead. The second ThoughtExchange question will be released in December based on the results of feedback collected. After winter break, we will tentatively shift from the listening step to the drafting step of the mission and vision work.

    Thank you for your devotion and passion to the students of this district and for the important role you will play in helping Define 109.
