    Community Expectations are Clear

    Through months of community engagement forums and surveys, our families were clear on what they expect for children in USD 232. 

    • Safe learning environments 
    • New learning and career programming opportunities should be available to students 
    • Expand student access to, and utilization of, instructional technology in classrooms 
    • High quality facilities to accommodate growing enrollment 
    • Right-sized spaces to accommodate onsite graduation and other large, growing events and activities 

    USD 232 is growing 

    Families are choosing our communities to raise their children because of our excellent schools.  That is why planning for the future is a priority for the Board of Education. There are currently more than 7,350 students enrolled in 12 schools. Over the last 20 years, enrollment has grown more than 200 percent, or an average of 248 new students each year.
