Kids walk into schools full of wonder and questions. How educators respond to students' natural curiosities can help further their exploration and shape the way they learn today and in the future. Our job as educators is to provide new and better opportunities for our students. We must foster innovation, encourage critical thinking, and inspire creativity--and those are the skills our students need to succeed.

Join George Couros, author of The Innovator's Mindset, as he encourages teachers, administrators, and parents to empower their learners to wonder, to explore--and to become forward-thinking leaders. If we want innovative students, we need innovative educators. In other words, innovation begins with you. Ultimately, innovation is not about a skill set: it's about a mindset.

The Innovator's Mindset event is open to all Barrington 220 staff, as well as members of the community. This will be held on June 13, 2024 from 12:00-3:00 at the Willow Creek Activity Center. A copy of George Couros' book, The Innovator's Mindset, will be provided to every participant at the event.  If you have questions, please contact Jordan Anderson, Director of Learning Services at janderson@barrington220.org. While there is no cost to attend, registration is required. Click here to register

The Barrington 220 Board of Education's 2024 Referendum Advisory Committee will assist the Board in identifying key components to be included in a referendum question proposed for the November 5, 2024 election ballot. The 2024 Referendum Advisory Committee will make a final recommendation to the Board of Education by the June 4, 2024 Board of Education meeting. The final decision of what will be asked on a potential referendum question rests with the Board. If the Board decides to place a referendum question on the November 2024 ballot, it must approve the question in August 2024.

"I believe Barrington 220 is truly an amazing school district. I have worked in several positions in D220, which has afforded me a unique perspective of the ways that students learn and grow within our different school communities. I have also experienced firsthand my own children thriving as students and benefitting from all that Barrington 220 has to offer. As Superintendent of Schools, I look forward to building upon our strong academic programs and rich innovation history as we implement our Framework 220 Strategic Plan."

    Barrington 220 is a place where students establish the fundamentals to forge their own paths. We read, write, think, discuss, and create. As a current faculty member and proud graduate of Countryside, Prairie, and BHS, I look forward to working with students every day to create the next generation of thinkers, learners, and creators. There's nowhere else I'd rather teach. I'm proud to work in Barrington 220 and I'm glad you're here.Cary WaxlerBHS Social Studies Teacher

    Barrington 220 is an innovative school district that provides a breadth of offerings which prepare students to successfully pursue their passions. The support of our community is second to none. I am proud to serve on the Barrington 220 Board of Education! Sandra Ficke-BradfordBoard of Education President

    Barrington 220 has done a great job with building avenues for us to explore. For example, there's choir, band and orchestra to explore the fine arts. There's robotics club, scholastic bowl, speech tournament, spelling bee. You can learn about languages, you can learn about cultures, you can learn about different types of people in general. Zar RomanStation Student

    Teaching is shining a light on your students' paths. I love providing a nurturing environment for students to learn, making connections with families, and fostering a strong feeling of community. Together, we grow!Sandra ChangGrove Avenue Teacher

    I really like the Barrington 220 School District because I think it's an enjoyable place and I feel like when you walk into any building it's a positive environment. Cami FordBHS Student

    I love how Barrington 220 schools offer a bunch of unique opportunities such as the Spanish Dual Language Program, which I am fortunate to be a part of. It's such an eye-opening experience and when you get older it's almost a sense of biculturalism, which I think is very awesome to be a part of.Emerson WulbeckerPrairie student
