Junior Achievement - Volunteers Needed!

On Thursday, May 16th, 2019, Adler Park School is partnering up with Junior Achievement (JA) to provide corporate and community volunteers to present the basics of business and economics to our students.  The 3 “pillars” of JA programs focus on work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. It’s a great opportunity to help students connect what they are learning in school with “real world” experiences.  

We have a need for parent volunteers and are hoping that you would consider this opportunity to volunteer either in your child’s classroom, or, in another classroom.  The program will run on May 16th from:

  • 8:00 - 9:45 am for Kindergarten classrooms

  • 8:00 - 10:55 am for 1st grade classroom

  • 8:00 - 11:25 am for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classrooms

A JA representative will provide a training session on Friday, May 10th from 12:30 -1:30 pm at Adler Park to orient all volunteers to the program, the curriculum kits, and classroom management techniques in order to help you be successful and have fun with it! Attendance at this training is highly suggested if volunteering in the classroom.

What is required from volunteers?

  • An interest in sharing with students in a classroom setting.  The curriculum is interactive and engaging with games and activities built in to make it fun!

  • Comfort talking to a group of students.  A classroom teacher will always be present.

  • You do not need to be an expert in economics or finance to teach JA!  The Program Guide Book we supply you with will provide all the information that you need to teach the lesson.

If you are interested in volunteering in a classroom and can attend the training session on May 10th, please email Dr. Kerri Bongle. Please include which classroom you would like to volunteer in on May 16th. Please note, that we will only need 2-3 volunteers per classroom. If we have too many volunteers in one classroom, we may ask you to volunteer in another classroom in the building. We will do our best to place you in the classroom you request but depending on interest, you may be placed in another classroom. Thank you in advance for your time and flexibility.

New Illinois School Report Card 2018

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
