Avoca School District 37 Wants You for the Communication & Engagement Committee!

As one component of our new strategic plan, the district is establishing a Communication & Engagement Committee for the purpose of keeping our community informed and involved with all things Avoca. We are hopeful that we can attract a representative group of volunteers from our community to participate on this important committee.

This committee will study our current reality as it relates to the topics of communication and engagement, investigate best practices, gather constituent preferences and develop recommendations for the district. We will meet approximately eight times starting in November with project completion targeted for the end of the school term. Meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m. and last approximately 2 hours.

If you are interested in supporting Avoca by joining this group, please complete the very short Communication and Engagement Committee Application.
If you are interested, but would prefer to complete the form manually, please call Suzie Harris, the Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, at (847) 728-4128.
