Gretchen Livingston for District 202Achieving Excellence | Building Relationships | Preserving Resources

No matter where each student falls on the spectrum of achievement, we must meet and challenge that student. I support continuous improvement.

Our new goals commit us to

“increase each student’s academic trajectory as demonstrated through multiple measures”; and to
“provide individualized supports, programs, services, and curricula to ensure that each student will demonstrate significant academic and social-emotional growth during their experience at ETHS”

We have worked together to set the goals. We must now evaluate our progress towards them and make adjustments as necessary to achieve our objectives. We are fortunate to have qualified and committed staff to help us get there. I look forward to continuing my work with the community to move us forward.
