Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians:

We are off to another great school year in District 215. Last year, as in years past, our students and staff made impressive accomplishments both in and out of the classroom that displayed their creativity, intelligence, fortitude, and tenacity.

Our district's graduation and attendance rates are among the best in the state of Illinois. For the seventh consecutive year, we passed a balanced budget. In the midst of the financial difficulties that continue to plague our state and our nation, we have not eliminated or downsized any programs or services for our students.

District 215 boasts a wide array of career and technical education programs, sports, and extracurricular activities for our 3,500 students. This year will bring a number of changes including the way in which your child's progress is monitored on standardized tests, our capacity to analyze student performance, activities designed to improve school climate, and various initiatives to improve our communication with our stakeholders.

Despite these changes, we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a dynamic learning community for our students. Please know that our school community is strengthened by your collaboration with our educators and your efforts to support learning both at school and home.


Dr. Creg E. Williams
