The Minooka Community Consolidated School District 201 Board of Education approved an agreement with a communications agency at a recent meeting to help increase community engagement.
The district is looking to work with Unicom ARC to make it possible. Superintendent Kris Monn spoke of why the agreement is necessary.
Unicom ARC intends to assist the district with community engagement by using a multi-part process. It includes, among other things, selecting a facilitating team, involving broad-based citizen participation and conducting public opinion research.
Beginning in late February and continuing for four months, the district intends to host four or possibly five community sessions devoted to facility issues, according to school board documents.
Monn said community engagement is always important to the district.
In the past, Unicom ARC has partnered with Naperville Community Unit School District 203, Lisle Community Unit School District 202 and Wheaton Community Unit School District 200, Community Consolidated School District 89 and Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205.
Monn had this to say of selecting Unicom ARC.
The communications agency’s proposal states it wants $52,500 for the cost of professional services, plus additional payment for out-of-pocket expenses, according to school board documents.
