New Illinois School Report Card 2018
Illinois

In a commitment to new statewide accountability and support, the 2018 Illinois School Report Card will take on new areas of concentration when released in late October. Reinstating the work of the No Child Behind Act, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed into law in 2015 by President Barack Obama, offers credence to student growth and graduation rates, accounting for fifty percent of how schools are evaluated, and carrying with it a 15-year timeline.

Transitioning from a spotlight focused on standardized test scores, multiple indicators of students’ success will be used to assess school quality. In addition to standardized tests, comprehensive indicators will include academic growth, chronic absenteeism, English learner proficiency, fine arts participation, school climate survey summaries, science measures, as well as preschool to second grade and elementary/ middle-grade indicators. The system also measures the academic progress of individual student demographic groups across the inclusive indicators. High school indicators comprise college entrance examination (SAT) success, as well as graduation accountability.

Using these balanced indicators, as defined through ESSA, a set of four tiers have been designated to reflect individual school performance; Exemplary, Commendable, Underperforming/Comprehensive, and Lowest Performing/Targeted, with funding and support services aligned to the most challenged or struggling of schools.

For more information, read the comprehensive summary of Illinois' Every School Succeeds Plan

Principal Appreciation Day Oct. 26
Guy Schumacher

In an era of increased accountability, high expectations, and advanced demands, schools around the state will take time to recognize the extraordinary efforts of school leaders during Principal Appreciation Week, October 21-27. This week, and throughout the school year, I offer my sincere gratitude for the leadership and dedication offered by the Libertyville School District 70 principals, assistant principals and dean of students. A proclamation signed by Gov. Rauner highlights the important role of school administrators in education and their support toward the growth of children in elementary, middle, and secondary schools across the State of Illinois.

As we celebrate our District 70 leaders during Principal Appreciation Day on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018, I am tremendously thankful and incredibly proud of all that they do for the children, parents, and staff throughout our learning community. Please join me in sharing recognition of this distinctive day and the collective efforts portrayed by such an impressive school leadership team.
