District 200 Community,
The State has released student performance data from last year’s State mandated tests throughout the fall months, including the Partnership of Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). As with any assessment, PARCC data is one snapshot of data to be used along with other sources of data. I’d like to share several student performance highlights with you.
Overall Student Performance
At our October 28th Board of Education Meeting, Faith Dahlquist, Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services, delivered a presentation on our student performance data. She provided a follow-up presentation regarding the PARCC assessment at the December 9th Board of Education Meeting. I invite you view the presentations and videos on our website. You can also view the 2015 School Report Cards for all of our schools as well.
Our students continue to demonstrate high levels of learning as measured through our District 200 local assessments and standardized state assessments. This is the first year of results from the PARCC assessments and those baseline results will serve as an additional data point in the ongoing evaluation of our learning programs.

Online Courses for High School Students
High school students and parents, did you know we offer 14 online learning courses during the academic year and five courses during the summer? Our district has partnered with Naperville Community Unit School District 203 and Indian Prairie School District 204 to create the Expanding Learning Opportunities Consortium, eLo. eLo provide students with quality instruction delivered virtually by innovative and passionate teachers from within the consortium. We have had over 1,500 successful course completions since we launched in 2014. Students may access their course from anyplace and anytime they choose.
