School Choice/Supplemental Educational Services

As a result of the No Child Left Behind Act, students attending Lincoln, Meehan, and Washington Elementary Schools have the option to transfer to another school within the district.  This is an option because the schools did not make adequate yearly progress on state tests for at least two years.  With a combined enrollment of 1,849 students, a total of 12 students have requested transfers to other elementary buildings.  Students whose families meet income limits under the law may also receive free tutoring.  During the 2012-2013 school year, 825 student families were eligible for tutoring, and 105 have elected to receive services.  To learn more about school choice options and tutoring opportunities, please click the School Choice Information folder below.

Historical Data:  2009-2010 was the first year students at Lincoln and Washington Elementary Schools had the option to transfer to either Kishwaukee or Perry Elementary Schools.  Of the 1,724 students, 4 exercised this option.  For the 2010-2011 and 2011-0212 school years, a combined total of 65 students exercised the option of school choice.

With regard to Supplemental Educational Services (tutoring), 2010-2011 was the first year of student eligibility.  Of the 812 student families who met the income limits under the law, 146 elected to receive tutoring.  A list of approved providers and locations of services can be found below.
