Learn More About Sycamore's Curriculum Review

Sycamore Community Schools is currently engaged in the first year of implementation of our new strategic plan to empower all learners to reach their full potential in a globally competitive world. An important goal of this plan is to enhance academic achievement.

To support this goal, the district has partnered with Education Elements to conduct a thorough curriculum review to gain an understanding of current curriculum resources and how those resources impact instruction and student learning. The complete curriculum review will provide information regarding alignment and identify areas of need and growth.

We would like to invite families to join us to learn more about the curriculum review and its findings. These virtual, informational sessions will be led by representatives from Education Elements.

Virtual sessions will be held:

Sessions will be recorded and viewed after the session. The recording of sessions will be available on the district website.

We have included directory information for all families who gave permission in Final Forms for the Sycamore School District to release this information to the PTO. Regardless of whether you gave permission in Final Forms, all families now have the ability to add, modify, or delete their information in Directory Spot. Please review your record and make any changes to the entry for your family.

At Symmes, we do not require families to be PTO members to have directory access. We hope you will use the directory to connect with other families and volunteers. The directory is for personal use only and may not be used for commercial or political purposes. PTO Membership supports many important programs for our students and staff and donations of any amount are appreciated.
