Parent Survey - Coming this Monday

District 41 will send all parents an online satisfaction survey this coming Monday, January 25. We want to hear from you! The data collected from these surveys is incredibly valuable and will help the district and the Board of Education understand how parents feel about specific aspects of their child's education.

You will receive an email from School Perceptions containing a link to the survey. All of the survey data remains with School Perceptions and your identity will be completely confidential. Please look for an email from School Perceptions on on Monday. The subject line will be: Glen Ellyn School District 41 Parent Survey.

Students in grades 4 - 8 will be taking a student survey during school hours, January 25 - February 9. District 41 staff are also being asked to take a similar survey.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this important survey!

Hadley Program Chosen for Field Test 

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) has chosen Hadley Junior High's Art Technology instructional program as a field test for new Certificate benchmarks. Periodically, the NBPTS revises national learning standards and teacher evaluation rubrics in each of its Certificate areas by sampling best practices from among a number of exemplary instructional programs. Hadley's program, led by teacher Frank Tomaszkiewicz, emphasizes communication skills, inquiry-based learning and career skills.

"The NBPTS is charged with maintaining high and rigorous standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do, and provides a national, voluntary system certifying teachers who meet these standards," explained Mr. Tomaszkiewicz. "Our selection as a Field Test instructional program is a big compliment."
