  • State School Report Cards: D63 Earns High Marks

    Posted by Janet Bishop on 11/5/2018

    report card On October 31, 2018 the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released its annual School Report Cards, which show how well schools are progressing on a wide range of educational goals. All seven of our schools received high summative designations.

    New this year, ISBE summative designations offer a comprehensive picture of how well a school is serving its students and the community. Designations are assigned based on a number of factors, but student growth carries the most weight. This emphasis is a change for ISBE. Instead of concentrating on the percentage of students meeting or exceeding certain standards, the focus is now on academic gains over time.

    The goal is to measure the school’s impact on student learning – regardless of where that student starts.

    ISBE’s affirmation of our work is indeed welcome, however these designations come as no surprise to those who teach your children every day. D63 students have always demonstrated tremendous growth during their time with us, the result of a skilled and caring staff – and the strong support we receive from our parents and guardians.

    Please note that summative designations are just one piece of each school’s report card. We encourage our families to explore the range of information provided.
