Student performance will be the leading topic for Wheaton Warrenville Unit District 200's next Engage200 session, which is scheduled for Feb. 19.

Superintendent Brian Harris said the topic was determined after the Engage200 facilitating team reviewed the feedback that was received from more than 400 people who attended last week's first community engagement meeting.

Harris noted that 234 attendees at the first meeting said they currently have students attending a school in the district, while 201 said they don't currently have students attending a school in the district, but they did at one time.

Another 30 attendees said they are parents of future District 200 students and 67 said they had no previous or future relationship with District 200.

Tentatively, the topics for the Engage200 meetings on March 26, April 16 and May 7 will be programs and services, facilities and finance. District officials said technology is also a pressing issue, but it likely will be addressed over all four sessions.

The final Engage200 session on June 18 is slated to be a summary meeting.

"Overall the anecdotal information we've received has been great," Harris said, adding that he hopes a variety of community members will continue to attend the sessions.

All future meetings will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays at Monroe Middle School, 1855 Manchester Road, Wheaton.
