Staff Spotlight!

This week we are highlighting our Assistive Technology Specialist, Mrs. Kennedy! Mrs. Kennedy serves as the Assistive Technology Specialist for the whole district, but she is based here at Kolmar and we are so lucky to have her! She supports students through explaining and helping them use communication devices, she helps set students up with different accommodations they might need in the classroom or during testing, and is always following up with any student or teacher that may need her help. Not only is she supporting the students by helping them use assistive technology, but she is constantly supporting teachers and staff too by explaining how these technologies work and answering questions so that the staff can understand how to best support their students. Mrs. Kennedy is extremely knowledgable and helpful and we as a district are incredibly lucky to have her! Thanks for all your hard work, Mrs. Kennedy!

Illinois 5Essentials Survey

Students and teachers across Illinois now have the opportunity to participate in the ninth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness. Additionally, your 4th-8th grade student will be asked about their experiences in school to help give school leaders critical student input and help develop future school improvement plans. If you would like to view the student survey questions or opt-out your student please complete the form found at: d123.org/five. You and your student's identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and anonymous. To get started with the survey head to d123.org/five.
