District News

Next Engage 204 on Dec. 7

The second Engage 204 session takes place December 7 from 7 to 9 pm at Still Middle School, 787 Meadowridge Drive, Aurora. This session will focus on "Changing Enrollment: Balancing Buildings and Boundaries."

Engage 204 is a collaborative process between the community and District 204 to ensure a strong future for the district and its students. The community engagement sessions explore different aspects of the district, including, enrollment, district finances, and other key issues involved in maintaining a successful educational experience for students.
