It's a new year and new look for District 44.
Earlier this school year, all District 44 staff members had the opportunity to join a "D44 Family" group. With 44 families in total, each one was charged with coming up with a new logo that symbolizes the district's vision and the goals contained in the newly adopted strategic plan.
Every family submitted a design, and the Board of Education was asked to narrow down the pool to a set of five finalists. Those final designs were then pushed out for a vote by all staff, and this was the selected design.
"The logo represents truly what we stand for in Lombard District 44: celebrating the growth of every student and helping them plant firm roots to succeed in life beyond our classrooms," said Superintendent Ted Stec.
