Evanston Township High School continues its Community Conversations, discussions that allow community members to engage in dialogue about the high school. The April and May conversations will focus on gathering suggestions and responding to concerns of “Future Wildkit” parents and families in the School District. Dr. Eric Witherspoon, District 202 Superintendent, will host these conversations at several District 65 elementary schools.

Parents and family members of children who attend public, private and parochial schools, who are home-schooled in School District 65 and 202 (they are coterminous) are encouraged to attend.

Staff members from ETHS will be available to answer questions, help refine understanding of key issues and build awareness of the school’s current efforts. ETHS also encourages participation by families who have enrolled children at ETHS in the past and may be sending their younger children to ETHS.

ETHS Community Conversations begin at 7 p.m. and last about 90 minutes. They are free and open to the public.
