On Friday, November 14th, the Chicago Tribune published the "Chicago Tribune Top 100 Workplaces," which is an annual exclusive list of the best places to work in the Chicago area. Community High School District 128 has been named a Top 100 Workplace! Although this recognition program considers all types of Chicago area workplaces, it is somewhat unusual for a school district to receive this recognition.
The evaluation for the Top 100 Workplaces program is based upon feedback from the anonymous employee survey that many of you completed a few months ago. D128 had an outstanding response rate on the survey, and we appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey.
We are honored to have been selected for this prestigious award, and more importantly, we are very proud of all of the staff for making D128, LHS and VHHS such special places to work. Thank you!
