The Illinois State Board of Education recently released the 2022-2023 School Report Cards. Illinois has four summative designations within the statewide school accountability system: Exemplary, Commendable, Targeted, Comprehensive & Intensive. Targeted, Comprehensive, and Intensive schools receive additional funding and supports to build local capacity and improve student outcomes.
In addition, the 2023 Illinois Report Card shows strong progress in students’ recovery from the pandemic – with increased proficiency rates and the highest graduation rate in 13 years.
Here in the 106th district, we had a few schools that were designated as “Exemplary” Schools, meaning that that their overall performance was in the TOP 10% of all schools in Illinois!! I want to honor those today!
There is no doubt that we have some of the best schools and educators in the 106th district and I am so proud of you all!
