About

A quality public education is the result of a strong partnership between school districts and their communities. Barrington 220's Family Engagement Program provides free, in-person, and virtual information sessions throughout the school year covering specific topics that help parents support their children as they move through the Barrington 220 School District. Our goal is to help families flourish in education. Click here to learn more about multilingual family engagement opportunities

In addition to our offerings, Barrington 220 is a member of the Family Action Network (FAN), a 501(c)(3) organization that curates a high-quality speaker series each academic year. All FAN programs are free and open to the public.

The Innovator's Mindset 
June 13, 2024 from 12pm-3pm @ Willow creek activity center

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
