News and Announcements

All parents with a student entering a 1:1 program in the 2016-2017 school year must attend a parent orientation in person or watch online (information on the online orientation will be coming soon).

District 300 students have a right to expect an education that provides them with the skills to be successful in the college classroom and to prepare for 21st century careers. The 1:1 program supports this right and helps the District achieve its central mission: to ensure all students are college or career ready upon graduation.


District 300 is proud to expand our library of parent resources designed to compliment the education our students receive inside the classroom every single day.

A non-mandatory pre-bid meeting will be held Tuesday, May 17th at 2:00pm.

Congratulations to Hampshire High School’s Kasey Reigner and Jacobs High School’s Brittany Lang for winning the Culinary Arts Scholarship sponsored by Aramark in partnership with District 300 and the Algonquin Rotary Club.
