Education Partners, good afternoon:

A rare Monday Board of Education Meeting dispatch, but there are several items of timely interest:

* Congratulations to St. Charles East High School business teacher Lisa Dandre, who was named the Kane County High School Teacher of the Year at Friday’s Educator of the Year festivities. This is a significant, and well-deserved honor. This information is posted on the District 303 website (www.d303.org) under “News and Photos” and “303 Excels.” Click here for more: http://www.d303.org/news/press/dandreaward05pr.htm

* Haines Middle School Principal Dr. Brian Harris is in line to become the new assistant superintendent for teaching and learning (formerly, curriculum and instruction – new title, same job.) If the Board of Education approves tonight, Harris will succeed Dr. Sandra Wright, who plans to return to teaching. Click here for more: http://www.d303.org/news/press/brianharrispr05.htm

* We received a Child Incident Bulletin late today from the St. Charles Police Department. As we do whenever we receive such a report from any of our police agencies, I’ve prepared a “District 303 Student/Stranger Encounter Report” for your information. That report is pasted below.
