School Calendar 2014-2015

Ed Condon and Martha Ryan-Toye presented the proposed District 90 2014-15 school year calendar. There are few changes in comparison with the 2013-14 calendar, though Spring Break is proposed for the week of March 30, 2015, in order to accommodate PARCC testing and align with the anticipated Oak Park River Forest High School break schedule.  

Instructional Specialist Presentation

Martha Ryan-Toye introduced the three Instructional Specialists, two of whom are new to the District this year. Jolene Lorimer (Roosevelt) worked with the District last year to pilot the Instructional Specialist model.  Michael Czerniawski (Lincoln), Kathleen Fleming (Willard) and Ms. Lorimer presented information about the purpose of their work within the three schools, as well as their collaborative efforts among the schools.
