ECRA SEL Spring Screener

April/May 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 and the midyear check occured in the winter. Students will complete the end of year check between May 3 through May 14. 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

Wild Rose Learning Center Dedication

I am honored to share that on Wednesday, May 19th we will celebrate the work, career and dedication of Dr. Robert Allison. We will be dedicating the Wild Rose LRC to Dr. Allison. We have already begun to transform the outside of the LRC to celebrate Wild Rose with a mural painted by D303 art teachers Lauren Kruse and Rebecca Hubs. We will be hosting this dedication outside at the front of the building. We can begin to gather at 5:30 pm and the dedication ceremony will take place at approximately 6:00 pm. We hope you will come join us in this celebration. Others outside of the Wild Rose Community will also be invited as Dr. Allison participated in many positions across the district during his time in D303.

Wild Rose PTO

PTO nominations and voting will take place at the May PTO meeting on May 3, 2021 @ 6:30 PM. This meeting will be hosted outside in front of Wild Rose.
