A newsletter devoted to Evanston’s public schools
Test scores are in steep decline, teacher morale is at an unprecedented low, parent concerns about safety and curricular changes are mounting.
Yet many people in Evanston — including some parents of D65 and ETHS students — are unaware of the changes taking place in our public schools.
That is why we created the Evanston Schools Update — to summarize important school news in local papers, to cover school board meetings, and to present diverse opinions about our school and school-related issues. Sign up with your email and we will alert you when each issue of the newsletter is posted.
About Evanston Schools Update
We are public school parents, teachers, and Evanston residents who are concerned about Evanston’s schools and our children’s future.
We created this newsletter because it’s become clear in conversations with neighbors that many people in Evanston — including some parents of D65 and ETHS students — are unaware of the changes taking place in our public schools.
We know most Evanstonians don’t track the constant stream of school news in local papers, or listen to the hours-long school board meetings, let alone fact-check claims made on social media.
But at a time when the stakes are so high for our kids and teachers, and when our school leaders are making critical decisions that impact every Evanston tax-payer, we believe that it is important that more of our neighbors know what’s happening in our schools.
If you have story suggestions, concerns about important school issues that are not being covered, or other comments, we would love to hear from you. Also, if you’d like to help share Evanston School Update with neighbors, please let us know!
