ILLINOIS REPORT CARD TO INCLUDE NEW DESIGNATIONS
On Oct. 31, the Illinois State Board of Education released its annual Illinois Report Card. The report shows the performance and progress on a wide range of metrics. New this year: the report card will include a summative designation for each school. Our schools have earned a commendable designation.
The Illinois State Board of Education has provided materials that describe the designations and their implications for students, schools and families on its Support & Accountability website. As always, our primary focus is the teaching and learning in our classrooms, as well as the support and opportunities we provide all of our students every day.
