When the decision is made to close schools due to inclement weather, District 70 uses an emergency notification system to deliver phone calls and emails about&nbsp;<strong>school closings or safety emergencies</strong>.<br /><br />&nbsp;There also now is an option to opt-in to receive the information via text by texting <strong>67587</strong> with either <strong>Y</strong> or <strong>YES</strong>&nbsp;as the message you send.&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;<em>This text (SMS) service only will be used in the event of school closings or a school emergency. For more information about school closings, please read the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.d70schools.org/?sect=dept&amp;func=cust&amp;dept_id=24&amp;cust_id=64">FAQ</a>.</em> Wed, 29 Nov 2017 18:02:29 -0500 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5082 Fees Increase to Cover Technology http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5491 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/districtround.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p>Student textbook and technology fees for the 2018-2019 school year will increase&nbsp;to help pay for updated infrastructure, new software, and technology devices.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />Fees for the upcoming school year, including textbook rental fees, technology fees, and supply costs, will be $125 for students in kindergarten through fifth-grade and eighth grade, while sixth- and seventh-graders will pay $225 to help cover the costs of one-to-one Chromebooks.&nbsp;<br /><br />&ldquo;We&rsquo;ve worked hard to keep costs low as we consider the bottom line for our stakeholders,&rdquo; Supt. Dr. Guy Schumacher said during a Monday night meeting before the Board of Education approved the increase. &ldquo;Now we need to increase the fees just to try to keep up. Technology changes, we need to update the infrastructure, buy new devices so that our students can take their assessments online. Without charging for extracurricular activities, including athletic&nbsp;participation (or music), our fees are still inline when compared to neighboring school districts.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> Tue, 23 Jan 2018 15:22:29 -0500 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5491 FAD70 Presentation on Homework, Assessment Data http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5425 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/eyoungman.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p>The slide <a href="http://www.d70schools.org/lib/files/documents/30/CurriculumInstructionAssessmentUpdate11162017.pdf">presentation&nbsp;on homework and recent assessment data shared during the Nov. 16 FAD70 meeting</a> by Dr. Erik Youngman, director of curriculum, instruction, and assessment.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:01:31 -0500 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5425 Supt.
