    Estimadas familias, personal y miembros de la comunidad del Distrito 15,

    Anoche, los votantes del Distrito 15 aprobaron abrumadoramente un referéndum para hacer avanzar nuestras escuelas y nuestro distrito. Nos sentimos verdaderamente humildes por este torrente de apoyo que tendrá un impacto significativo en cada estudiante, escuela y comunidad a la que servimos con orgullo en las próximas décadas. 

    En nombre de la Junta de Educación y en el mío propio, nuestro más sincero agradecimiento por su confianza, entusiasmo y apoyo al plan Moving 15 Forward. Este plan cambiará las reglas del juego para los estudiantes y el personal del Distrito 15, y queremos que todos los residentes sepan que nos sentimos honrados de tener su confianza y encantados de estar avanzando con ustedes. 

    Por favor, sepan que no tomamos su apoyo a la ligera. A medida que avanzamos desde el voto positivo de anoche hasta la realización del plan “Moving 15 Forward”, seguiremos comprometiéndonos con nuestro personal y la comunidad en cada paso del camino en nuestro sitio web actualizado “Moving 15 Forward”, rediseñado para compartir el progreso a medida que estos emocionantes sueños se hacen realidad.

    Seríamos negligentes si no extendiéramos una ronda adicional de agradecimiento a tantos residentes locales que contribuyeron con innumerables horas para desarrollar y proporcionar comentarios para mejorar nuestro pensamiento y asegurar el futuro de la educación de calidad en el Distrito 15. 

    Con sincera gratitud y entusiasmo por lo que nos depara el futuro,
