Host Families needed for Exchange Teachers

District 181 is set to welcome several teachers from the LEAP Schools in South Africa. They will spend about a month learning about our schools and program. We need your help in securing host families during their time here.

Would you or someone you know be interested in hosting an educator? Optimally, we are looking for a family who can host the entire month, Aug. 30-Sept. 26. However, we can work with families that could only host a minimum of two weeks and also find alternative accommodations if there are certain dates, such as Labor Day weekend, when a host family is not available. Host families are asked to provide a bedroom, breakfast and dinner and help with transportation to CHMS and HMS.

We are very excited about this powerful learning experience. If you are interested please contact Meg Cooper, director of the D181 Foundation at
