Message from the Superintendent-September 24

September 24, 2019

Dear District 31 Community, 

For the last month I have been communicating consistently with you about our transportation challenges with First Student.  Recognizing this is a concern for our community, the Board of Education has scheduled a discussion during our upcoming Thursday Board Meeting.   First Student leadership has also committed to be in attendance to hear concerns, answer questions, and provide information.  Parents and community members are welcome to attend this Board Meeting (and indeed any Board of Education Meeting, which are held monthly).  We welcome your participation. The upcoming Board of Education Meeting will be this Thursday, September 26 at 7pm in the Field Learning Center. Any attendees of the meeting should enter through the District office entrance on Techny. If anyone would like to make a comment you can either contact me or participate in the “Comments from Audience” portion of the meeting. The agenda item focusing on a transportation discussion is scheduled for earlier in the evening.  The complete agenda can be found here (and on the District website).

Thank you so much for your partnership.


Dr. Erin Murphy

Superintendent of Schools
