One outstanding example of successful community collaboration is the Superintendent’s Task Force for Middle Level Education, a group of 140 staff, parents, students and community members convened to improve our middle schools. The results of that task force include the new science classrooms and labs, STEM and CMA programs, increased student choice and improved focus on social-emotional learning.

In District 109, we honor our past while preparing our students and our schools for the future. We partner with the Deerfield Area Historical Society to ensure that we recognize our roots. The District Center, at 517 Deerfield Road, shares land with the Deerfield Historical Society’s Historic Village, including the Little Red Schoolhouse, which has become the symbol of District 109. Each spring, fourth grade students from all four elementary schools visit the Historic Village for a day of authentic pioneer learning. You can hear the school bell ring!
