Erin's Law 
Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn. Erin’s Law (in Illinois, Public Act 96-1524) mandates that Illinois public schools provide training to certified staff on prevention of child sexual abuse. It also mandates that public school children pre-kindergarten through 12th grade be educated on how to protect themselves from sexual abuse. Students learn age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult. School personnel learn about child sexual abuse. Any questions or concerns can be addressed by building administrators, guidance counselors or school social workers. 

 School Report Card 
 The school report cards for each school and the school district have been released by the State. In January, 2013, the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance level cut scores for the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) for mathematics and reading in grades 3-8. The performance level cut scores were raised to support more rigorous curricula and instructional approaches that meet Common Core State Standards that better equip our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively pursue higher education or successfully enter the work force. Due to these higher expectations on the reading and mathematics ISAT assessments, there was a significant decrease statewide in the percentage of students meeting and exceeding standards at the elementary and middle school grades. The change in performance in grades 3-8 does not mean our students know less or are less capable than they were in previous grades. This decline also is not a reflection on teacher performance. Instead, the Illinois State Board of Education is raising the bar on what students must achieve in order to be ready for success in college and careers.

The Illinois State Board of Education has prepared a traditional report card, as well as a user-friendly and easy to read report card summary for each school, the Illinois Report Card at a Glance. The new Report Card at a Glance includes summarized information, details on school programs and awards, as well as a link to data from the 5Essentials survey about the district’s learning conditions.
