News and Announcements

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This a reminder that beginning next school year (Fall 2015), all students entering the sixth and twelfth grade will be required to show proof of recent meningococcal vaccination. 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This morning, District 300 received information regarding changes to the PARCC assessment for the 2015-16 school year. These changes reflect a portion of the feedback that the Illinois State Board of Education received across the state.

The changes address concerns regarding the number of assessments, the length of each assessment, and the need for two separate assessment windows (for example, performance-based and end-of-year assessments).

Technology is an important tool that can help teachers differentiate the manner in which they deliver instruction and make meaningful connections to real world applications of knowledge. Several years ago, District 300 made a significant investment by placing Smart Boards and other technology into the classroom. The District also worked to enhance the technology infrastructure and connectivity within our high schools.

This fall, Dundee-Crown High School will offer students a real entrepreneurship experience through a new course called Business Incubator. Students will have the opportunity to create and fully develop their own product or service and pitch it to investors in an effort to turn their business plans into reality!

District 300 invites parents and community members to communicate your thoughts regarding the District’s current graduation requirements. 

What do you believe may need to be added or removed from the current requirements? What skills do you believe are necessary for success after high school graduation?

Please let us know your thoughts by taking this brief survey:

District 300 Community,

Thank you to each of you who took the time to communicate your thoughts regarding the possibility of a districtwide Back to School event during last week’s “You Spoke, We Listened,” question.

As mentioned, District 300 has been meeting with local businesses and healthcare providers to brainstorm the logistics of a Back to School event in August.

Your responses have been reviewed and discussed by the appropriate individuals and your feedback will help shape the scope of the Back to School event.
