Hello New Tech Families,
We are in the final 6 weeks of this school year, and it is critical we finish strong! Please continue to visit the website and stay connected for the latest information regarding end-of-the-year details. Next week, Wednesday, April 13, 2022, is our district assessment day. Seniors will not be in attendance. Our Junior students will take the SAT test, while 9th and 10th graders will take the PSAT assessments. Buses will run, with Freshman and Sophomore students being released at 11:45 and Juniors at 12:45. Please continue to support your child as they work to bring this school year to a successful close. As always, I look forward to creating more great days for our students and staff!
DISTRICT 126 TITLE I ANNUAL MEETING
Annually, we update our Title I School Compact and Schoolwide plan with parents. On Tuesday, April 12th, Zion-Benton Township HS District 126 is hosting its annual meeting at two different times to ensure parents who want to attend have options to do so. During the meeting we will review the District’s Title I plan and other related items. The meeting will occur via Zoom.
