A Message from the Superintendent
_ As the school year comes to an end, we reflect on all that we have accomplished together.
We have partnered with East Peoria schools to implement the Common Core in Math, English, and Language Arts.
We have submitted a balanced budget for the past three years and received the highest financial recognition in the State.
We have begun implementing the Common Core standards and are aligning our curriculum K-8.
We designed and implemented a Mental Health program in partnership with the Center for Prevention of Abuse that is receiving National recognition.
We initiated a District wide Positive Behavior Intervention Program that has resulted in a fifty percent decrease in discipline referrals at the Middle School.
We created a District wide parent and community volunteer program called PACE that already has a membership of over 60 volunteers.
We invited Head Start back into the District and celebrate the opening of the Creve Coeur Children's Center in January of this year.
We restored a basically empty facility at Homewood and welcomed the Safe School and Alternative High School into the District.
We continue our partnership with Fondulac Park District.
We instituted a District wide assessment plan that monitors student achievement over time.
We implemented a one-to-one netbook community at the Middle School and are working towards Smartboards in every classroom at the Elementary.
Several years ago our gifted and talented Middle School students began to participate in Virtual School.
For the first time in the history of the District, Creve Coeur administration, teachers and board members join together in a curriculum collaborative to share ideas with East Peoria High School, East Peoria Grade School and Robein.
Creve Coeur collaborates in a professional learning community with East Peoria and Robein; sharing professional development opportunities with our staff.
The District has received nearly 2 million dollars in grant dollars and in-kind donations in the past three years.
We instituted a Response to Intervention program to assist struggling students K-8.
We entered into a collaboration with the village and received a $270,000.00 grant to upgrade sidewalks and crosswalks around our schools.
We have data and a monitoring system that records the progress of each child in the District.
It is my fervent hope and prayer that the programs that serve our children and support our teachers continue and grow. Please welcome the new Superintendent and as always, thanks for your continued support.
Superintendent, Creve Coeur District 76
