The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released our annual School Report Card on Oct. 30 at www.illinoisreportcard.com. The Report Card shows how well our school is progressing on a wide range of educational goals.
Each school’s Report Card includes a designation, a descriptor of how well our school is meeting the needs of all students. This designation is based on eight indicators of academic success and school quality including student growth. Our designation is a fact, not a judgment, and represents one moment in time.
For the first time ever, these designations and academic indicators appear alongside site-based expenditures – how much money our district spends per student at our school. With these two data points, we have the opportunity to take a closer look at the relationship between financial investments and student outcomes.
For the second year in a row our school’s designation is Exemplary. This ranking places DuJardin School in the top 10% of all schools in the state.
Thanks to each staff member, student, and parent for their efforts in making this designation possible!
