The 2013 St. Charles Community Unit School District 303 Parent Satisfaction Survey will take place from December 10 through December 17. Parents of all District 303 students are encouraged to participate.
This anonymous survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete and will be available at district.d303.org beginning on Tuesday, December 10. Parents should complete one survey for each of their children who attend a District 303 school. The survey has different versions for students attending elementary, middle or high school. All versions of the survey are available in English and Spanish.
District 303 conducts this annual survey on a wide range of topics including teachers, curriculum, instruction, principals, administration, buildings and food service. “The Parent Satisfaction Survey gives parents the opportunity to evaluate the range of services District 303 provides and also gives District administration valuable feedback on our efforts to meet the needs of our students and our community,” said Dr. Mark Pomplun, District 303 Executive Director of Assessment. “We have had record levels of participation by parents in the survey each of the last two years and would like to set another record this year. As the participation numbers increase, so does the accuracy of the data gathered.”
The results of the survey are scheduled for presentation to the District 303 Board of Education in January or February of 2014.

Dr. Schlomann released a statement about additional litigation filed regarding the configuration of Richmond and Davis Schools. Click here to read the media statement.
The Naperville Police Department has arrested and charged a 37-year old man named Erik Hakala for posing as a 15-year old St. Charles East High School student using the fictitious name “Mike Evans” on a Facebook account.
It is alleged that Hakala used this fake account to carry on explicit conversations and exchange photos with other Facebook users in the area.
Because of this incident, the Naperville Police Department recommends that parents of high school students in St. Charles, Batavia and Oswego review their children’s Facebook friends to see if they have been in contact with a person going by the name of “Mike Evans”.
Parents who discover their children were in contact with "Mike Evans" through Facebook or through a cell phone application called KIK are asked to preserve all conversations and photos their children may have exchanged with him.
Police are asking parents to not report the activity to Facebook and instead call the Naperville Police Department High Technology Crimes Unit at (630) 305-5384 or the Batavia Police Department Investigations Unit at (630) 454-2500.
We would like to note that we have no record of Erik Hakala ever attending a District 303 school and that currently there are no students named Mike Evans attending either of our high schools.
We also would like to take this opportunity to remind all parents that knowing the log ins and passwords for your child’s social media accounts and periodically monitoring the postings on those accounts is highly recommended.
