Greater St. Charles Foundation Raffle Basket Donations Needed!

Each year the Greater St. Charles Education Foundation hosts a Silent Auction to help raise funds to support important needs of teachers and students of D303, through grants and scholarships. Each year our PTO contributes a basket to be auctioned off that is valued at $150-$300. Last year our community came together and very generously donated to our basket. Our school’s basket was one of the top prizes! This year our theme is Handyman. If you are willing to help donate an item, please click on the link to sign up. All items should be brought to the Anderson School Office by Friday, February 18th. Thanks for your help in supporting our Foundation.

D303 Superintendent Search

The District 303 School Board has begun the process to search for a new superintendent of schools to replace Dr. Jason Pearson when he leaves in June. To assist us in this important process, the School Board has retained the services Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA). They specialize in assisting boards with the identification and selection of candidates after hearing from stakeholders in the community. Please click on the link below for more information on the opportunities being offered.

Your feedback helps us celebrate and improve!

Every year, District 303 conducts a satisfaction survey eliciting feedback from our students, teachers, and parents. This year, as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we will now be participating in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent or guardian, this survey will provide you with the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness about your child’s school.

We need at least 20% of our families to take this survey. You know Mr. Jarot will be overly friendly and persistent until we meet our goal. :)

We value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your suggestions for improvement. To take the parent survey please visit and select the appropriate survey. Click HERE for a more detailed letter.
