ACCESS Test for English Learners Pushed from Possible Start Date of Jan. 4 To No Sooner Than March 15
The original administration window for the ACCESS test, which measures the proficiency of English Learners in reading, writing, speaking and listening, would have allowed schools to begin testing as early as Jan. 4. ISBE has announced a decision which ensures no student will take a federally required assessment, including ACCESS, until March 15 at the earliest. Due to this announcement, our original notice regarding the start of District 118’s ACCESS testing has been postponed. Thank you.

El examen de ACCESO para estudiantes de inglés pasado de la fecha de inicio posible del 4 de enero a no antes del 15 de marzo
La ventana de administración original para la prueba ACCESS, que mide el dominio de los estudiantes de inglés en lectura, escritura, habla y escucha, habría permitido a las escuelas comenzar a realizar pruebas desde el 4 de enero. ISBE ha anunciado una decisión que garantiza que ningún estudiante tomará una evaluación federal requerida, incluido ACCESS, hasta el 15 de marzo como muy pronto. Debido a este anuncio, nuestro aviso original sobre el inicio de los exámenes de ACCESS del Distrito 118 ha sido pospuesto. Gracias.

Erin’s Law

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.
