Why does Illinois issue School Report Cards?
The School Report Card is used as a tool to inform the community about public schools in Illinois.
What is reported in School Report Cards?
Information pertaining to school enrollment, average class size, time dedicated to subject area, teacher experience, school finances, and student performance are just a few of the areas that are presented.
Where can I get a copy of my schoolʼs School Report Card?
School Report Cards are posted online and are available for request at each school in Libertyville District 70.
How can I tell if my childʼs school continues to improve?
You are able to compare School Report Cards online at our District site for the previous two years, or you may visit the Illinois Interactive Report Card site developed and maintained by Northern Illinois University.
When are state tests administered?
State-mandated tests, the Illinois Standards Achievement Test and the ACCESS (for non-English speaking students), are administered each spring.
How is student performance measured on state tests?
Adequate yearly progress (AYP) is a component of the federal legislation act known as No Child Left Behind. By the 2013-2014 school year all students in all subgroups are expected to meet or exceed state standards as evidenced by their successful performance on state tests. To reach that goal, step increases were created. All students and subgroups in Libertyville District 70 continue to meet AYP and continue to show improvement across subject areas.
Due to the pandemic, the most current report cards for the year 2019-2020 were waived.
