Corron Mission Statement
From the Principal
Social Emotional Learning has been a primary focus for our building for the past three school years. This year, our district adopted the ECRA SEL survey for students in 2nd grade through high school. This survey has students respond to prompts specific to Responsible Decision Making, Self-Regulation, and Social Relationships at different points during the school year. Our staff has used this information to support our continued work with students specific to identifying feelings and finding ways to regulate strong emotions. Currently, teachers are focusing on instruction and strategies in the area of Self Regulation. Below are the indicators from the ECRA survey that are guiding our conversations during Morning Meetings and across the school day.
When I work hard, I do good at school.
When I feel sad, I do something to make me feel better.
I believe I can be successful.
I believe I can learn most things that are taught to me.
I go over my work before I hand it in to make sure I have done my best.
I keep trying at something until I succeed.
I like to go to school.
I have control over how much I learn.
I can tell you how I feel.
I set goals for school, and then I try to meet those goals.
These are skills and language that you can easily support and reinforce at home as well. Please feel free to reach out with any questions that you have related to this work that we are doing with all of our students. This is such a great opportunity for us to partner in your child’s success!

5 Essentials Survey
Dear Parents and Guardians,
District 303 participates in the annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey that collects feedback from our
students, teachers, and parents. Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will give
you the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness. The
responses will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide our
improvement efforts. All responses are confidential and will never be connected to you or your
The Parent Survey is currently open and will remain so through April 2 2021. To take the
survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey. As
part of this communication, we have included graphics of the login page with additional
information about how to access the survey. Most notably, make sure you enter Kane County
in the box for county even if your home or your child’s school is in DuPage County. This will
allow you to correctly select your child’s school.
All District 303 teachers, as well as students in 4 th through 12 th grades, are being asked to
complete this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or
students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. Teachers will work with students to
assist them with logging in and taking the student survey.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered
online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five
indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and
larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

Middle School Transfer Request Info
MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFERS - REQUEST PERIOD OPEN FROM FEB. 1 - FEB. 26
Families who wish to submit a Middle School Transfer request may do so beginning February 1, 2021. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available. This means that siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
The Middle School Transfer request window will close at 4:00pm on February 26, 2021.
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Marsan at: 331-228-2397.
