It is hard to believe we only have a few weeks left of school. As we celebrate a successful 2016-2017 school year, we are busy planning for next year and would like to share some important information for parents.
Registration for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on June 8th and 9th, and the portal for online registration will open on June 5th . Returning students will receive an email with a code for registration and a link to access the site. Please note that if you complete the required fields, upload your current proofs, and pay your registration fees online, you do not need to attend the on-site registration on the dates listed above. Students registering at any District 100 school must be residents of South Berwyn. Please be aware that Illinois has made it a crime to knowingly or willfully present any false information regarding the residency of a student and that District 100 strongly enforces student residency laws.
In an effort to improve communication with our parents, District 100 will be replacing Schoology with a new learning management system and will be expanding parent access to PowerSchool, our current student management system. Beginning next school year, parents will be able to access one system for all necessary school information, including attendance, classroom updates, health information, and academic progress. Schools will no longer post teacher and class assignments on the doors of the buildings, but will instead use PowerSchool to provide this information prior to the first day. Please look for communication from the district in early August to set up your account and to access important information for the start of the 2017-2018 school year. In order to receive access, it is necessary to provide an email address when registering students in June. We look forward to providing a more efficient communication platform for our families in the upcoming school year.
Over the past year, we have shared our District Improvement Plan and goals for targeting growth in student achievement, language acquisition, and communication. The process of creating the plan included input from many different stakeholders in the district and community, and we want to continue our district improvement discussion by seeking input from parents on the vision and mission statements of the school district. We value your opinion and are requesting your participation in a brief four-question survey to help us identify priorities for the district moving forward. Thank you in advance for your response.
Enjoy the last two weeks of the school year!
