What was new for the Class of 2020: New East Gym floor and bleachers
Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: Resilience is a common theme for the Class of 2020 across the nation, but I have seen Kaneland's class model this in many ways over the past four years. As we move towards Standards-Based Grading, and into a new strategic plan for the district, they have been an instrumental part in the piloting and their feedback has been crucial. They continue to raise the bar of student involvement and success, and have made a positive impact on KHS, and all who have had the privilege of working with them!
