The Illinois State Board of Education annually releases a report card that shows how each school, district, and the state is performing on a wide range of educational goals. Every school receives an annual designation on the Illinois Report Card. The designation is based on the school’s overall data for all of the accountability indicators, as well as the data for individual student groups. There are four designations for schools including exemplary, commendable, underperforming and lowest performing.
I am proud to say that River Woods School received the designation of exemplary which means our school has no underperforming student demographic groups at or below the “all students” group of the lowest 5 percent of Title 1 schools, and whose performance is in the top 10 percent of schools statewide.
With this state designation, we celebrate our school community’s successes and pursuit of educating the whole child. At River Woods School, we will continue to empower our children to positively impact the world as we focus on our school improvement goals in social-emotional development and academic growth. We look forward to demonstrating PRIDE through our actions at school and in the community.
Again, we are so proud of our students and staff for their hard work in our school. If you have any questions or would like to discuss our state designation further, please feel free to contact me.
