Greetings Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year in Cook County School District 130!

Last year, our district embraced the theme "Teamwork Makes the Dream Work." Our staff, students, families and community members actively worked together throughout the year to strengthen our schools and help each other succeed. This phrase has become part of our culture, as it reinforces our commitment to working together to foster a trusting, collaborative and equitable learning environment for all members of our school community.

This spring, after months of hard work and collaboration, our Curriculum Department rolled out draft versions of curricular guides to support instruction. These guides are standards-aligned and provide the structure for our goals, objectives, learning experiences, instructional resources, and assessments for the educational program. ?Additionally, they articulate what students should know and be able to do and supports teachers in knowing how to achieve these goals.

Another important change this year is the addition of four Early Release days to our school calendar. These days will allow us to continue our efforts with strategic, targeted professional development for all employees. Please make note of the dismissal times for these dates, which were included in the district handbook.

Finally, we would like to welcome all of our new staff members to the district, as well as the new members of our Board of Education. We look forward to partnering with them in ensuring the success of all students.

I am excited to see all of you in our schools throughout the year. As always, thank you for your continued support of District 130 students and staff!
