The Department of Communication Services exists to involve all members of the District 300 community in district decision-making with the goal of increasing public support for our school system. Communication Services manages or supports areas including media relations; the Rapid Communication System (RCS); the D300 mobile app; governmental relations; social media; recognition of students, staff and community; district-level publications such as The Leader newsletter, D300 Profile (Annual Report), and Parent Handbook; the D300 Parent-Teacher Organization Council; the D300 Community Leadership Council; strategic planning and messaging; website support; and district-level annual events such as Relay For Life.

It is the intention of the School Board of Community Unit School District 300 to provide the School District facilities to external community groups and organizations, for the benefit of the community and the schools. School facilities are available to community organizations during nonschool hours when such use does not: (1) interfere with any school function or affect the safety of students or employees, or (2) affect the property or liability of the School District. The use of school facilities for school purposes has precedence over all other uses.

The Financial Services Team provides business services and expertise to support our students and buildings and includes the Business Office, Financial Reports, Grants Management, and Purchasing operations for the district. 

Welcome to the Human Resources Department at Community Unit School District 300.  Our Human Resources Department is committed to providing the highest level of customer service through fair treatment of employees, open communication and personal accountability.   Our goal is to provide, encourage and support a talented workforce that represents our diverse student population.  You are an integral part of building a bright future for the nearly 21, 000 students in CUSD300. 

It is the goal of the Operations Services to ensure that district facilities and infrastructure meet the district's mission and objectives by providing a safe and secure learning environment while using our resources efficiently and effectively.

In these uncertain times, an emergency or disaster can strike any school community at any time.  It is the responsibility of schools to care for and protect what is, arguably, this country’s most valuable resource: children.  Safety and a sense of security are key elements of a positive learning environment.  Without such security, schools cannot function effectively especially if teachers cannot teach and students cannot learn when they are – or feel that they are – continuously under threat.  Safety, therefore, should be the first responsibility of administrators, teachers, counselors, supporting staff members and persons at every level...both within our schools and our communities.

Whether a school-related emergency takes the form of natural disasters, such as fires, tornadoes or earthquakes, or man-made disasters, such as school shootings, active violence or acts of terrorism, the school system should be prepared to respond to these types of events and to work in partnership with local public safety officials to address the needs of the affected students and staff quickly...and to return the school community to a state of normalcy.

Crisis prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery are the most important focus of this school district. There is NOTHING more important to Community Unit School District 300 than the safety and security of our students, staff and the visitors of our school campuses.  Please CLICK HERE to read the December 14, 2012, news release briefly summarizing some of our safety precautions in D300.

The Teaching and Learning Team's goal is to provide long-range planning, implementation, and monitoring of an aligned curriculum and assessment program, while also providing direct services to schools in their efforts to improve student achievement and staff performance.

To keep pace with the rapidly changing world, CUSD300 will build and maintain technology environments that meet the on-going, 21st-century learning needs of all students, and provide the resources necessary to sustain the growth of technology systems, devices, and tools required for impactful, efficient and effective student learning and district operations.

District 300’s Transportation Services Department and Durham School Services work in conjunction with school personnel, district administrators, and parents to provide a safe and efficient service to students.  The safety and security of your child is our number one priority.


Our 230 buses and vans are dispatched from two facilities which are based in Algonquin and Hampshire.  Each school day we transport more than 16,000 students to over 50 different schools – including those outside of D300 for out-placed students.  Our drivers travel over 300,000 miles each month.


We are proud of the fact that we have retained many of the same drivers, dispatchers and routers over the years.  This is a testament to the dedication that the transportation staff has to the students of D300.
