ECRA SEL Mid Year Check-in January 18th - 29th

Community Unit School District 303

201 S. 7th Street, St. Charles, IL 60174-2664 ◦ (331) 228-2000 ◦ www.d303.org

January 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian,

St. Charles Community Unit School District 303 strives to provide all students with the best opportunity to succeed academically, socially, and behaviorally in school. As part of this commitment, District 303 is enhancing our Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS) across the district for the 2020-2021 school year.

This year, students in grades 2-5 and students in 6-12 will be completing a universal screening tool to assess their academic, social, and emotional learning skills. The use of universal screening allows us to refine and strengthen our efforts to help all students achieve success by taking positive and preventative measures as early as possible. This also provides us with the opportunity to assist students who may need additional support with academic, social, and emotional learning.

One of the universal screening tools used by the District is the ECRA SEL Survey, which focuses on the following areas:

  • Responsible Decision Making

  • Self-Regulation

  • Social/Relationships

The ECRA SEL Survey will be completed three times this school year. The first one was completed in the fall. Students will complete the mid year check between January 18 and January 29. The third check will be April 26 through May 7. If a screening shows that a student will benefit from additional skill development, parents will be contacted and will work in collaboration with school staff to problem-solve and determine next steps.

Additional information about this screener and other assessments in District 303 may be found on our website at https://district.d303.org/departments/assessment. Thank you for your support and assistance in ensuring each of our students has the opportunity to achieve academic and social-emotional success.

Please feel free to contact your building principal or me if you have questions.


David Chiszar

Executive Director of Assessment and Accountability

D303 Preschool Registration 2021-2022

The District 303 Community Preschool Program will be conducting its annual registration lottery. Enrollment will be offered online from January 19 to February 2, 2021. Two informational meetings will be offered via Zoom for all interested community families who reside in District 303. The lottery enrollment link and informational meeting's registration link can be found on the District website on the Early Childhood page. Please note, in order to receive the Zoom links for the informational meetings, you must complete the registration form.

El Programa Comunitario de Prescolar del Distrito 303 llevará a cabo la lotería de inscripción anual. La inscripción se ofrecerá en línea entre el 19 de enero y el 2 de febrero del 2021. Se ofrecerán dos juntas informativas por Zoom para todas las familias de la comunidad que residen en el Distrito 303 que estén interesadas. En enlace a la lotería de inscripción y el enlace para registrarse a las juntas informativas se encuentran en el sitio web del distrito en la página de Infancia Temprana (Early Childhood).

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.
