District welcomes new staff members

District 200 welcomed more that 30 new teachers and certified staff members for the new school year.  New staff gathered for meetings the week before school started; worked in their buildings; met with District administrative staff, and took a tour of the district. We’re happy to welcome these new members to our D200 community, and wish them all the best!
