Intermediate High Math Program

Posted: March 19, 2015

The District would like to correct inaccurate information that is being circulated by some of our parents. According to these individuals, the District has eliminated the intermediate high math program, an assertion that is not accurate.

I want to assure parents that the intermediate high math program has not been eliminated but rather has been redesigned to expand opportunities to include more students. Approximately 40 K-12 teachers on the math curriculum committee worked over a three-year period to design the new K-12 math curriculum to prepare District 7 students to meet the challenge of the variety of courses available at the high school level.

PARCC Student Assessment

Posted: March 2, 2015

In recent days, I’ve received a few emails and phone calls from parents regarding the security of the PARCC student assessment data. The two questions that have been asked of me are:

     Who can access the data?

     Does the state provide data to a third-party vendor?

I called State Superintendent Chris Koch on Monday, March 2, 2015, and asked him to clarify those two questions. Please find answers to these questions by accessing Student Data Privacy Protection Fact Sheet via this link http://www.isbe.net/pdf/studentdataprivacy-factsheet.pdf.
