Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians:

In our effort to increase our efficiency and encourage our students to develop and adopt 21st century technological skills, our district is shifting functions that have historically resulted in paper consumption to go paperless.

Please be advised that the method in which you will receive notification regarding your child's progress reports, grades, and other important notifications is changing.

At the nine-week mark of the grading period, which is quickly approaching, you and your child will receive their grades both electronically and via postal mail. After that time, you will be responsible for viewing your child's grades electronically through parent portal of PowerSchool and via email. By October 2014, we will no longer print paper copies of your student's progress and grade reports.

All District 215 students have been issued a district-issued email address. This district-issued email address will serve as the official means of communication between our school staff and your child. Our staff will send communication with your child including information regarding class schedules, class assignments and homework, transcripts, college and financial aid resources, athletic tickets, graduation, prom, and other school-related news to his or her District 215-issued email address.

Your child received instructions on how to access their District 215 email account during their English class.

 

Respectfully,
Dr. Creg E. Williams
Superintendent
