Making the Grade Conference

Springfield Public School District 186 -- Spfld, IL

Thank you to all Students, Staff & Volunteers!

Thank you to the volunteers, students and school personnel who helped Making the Grade Conferences at Lanphier, Springfield & Southeast High Schools a huge success! New this year, the students used laptops to access their school progress. This gave the student a chance to use technology to review current data and set goals for the remainder of the quarter/semester.
The next MTG Conferences will be held in December! See below to volunteer.

"I got more knowledge on what to do to become a nurse."
"What I like is the people who struggle with keeping their grades up are getting more help than usual."
"It was nice to talk with someone else about my grades besides my parents."
"Getting to talk about grades and after high school."
