A Message from the Co-Interim Superintendents
Dear West Harvey-Dixmoor Family,

Serving as Interim Co-Superintendents of West Harvey-Dixmoor School District 147 is both an honor and a privilege for each of us. We look forward to working with our staff and families supporting the educational prospects for each child served within our school district.

As the new school year begins, we are reminded of the importance of rigor, relevance and relationships within education. As members of the West Harvey-Dixmoor School District 147 Family, we are working with a talented staff of educators and support staff to ensure excellent programs for all students. We believe in the potential of each child and will work in partnership with our staff and families to ensure opportunities for the children in our charge.

It will be important to provide our children with the academic and social preparation they will need to ensure individualized future success. Our goal is to provide structures to analyze student progress and achievement in order to improve educational outcomes for all students. Through a comprehensive curriculum audit, inclusive processes for development of a relevant curriculum will enhance student learning opportunities. This process will be both inclusive and engaging.

We look to our parents, guardians and community members to partner with us to achieve this awesome and exciting task of meeting the needs for our students. Communication will serve as a primary tenet of our practice at School District 147. We are always available to discuss any recommendations, issues or concerns. Please feel free to contact us at any time.

Have a fantastic and exciting school year!!!
