Welcome from Barbara Somogyi, President, Board of EducationWelcome from Barbara Somogyi, President, Board of Education(es)

barbaraDear Parents/Guardians:

The Board of Education and I hope that the Guide to School District 59 will be helpful to you. This guide contains important information about many educational programs and services available to parents and children. Take some time to understand the summaries of policies and procedures that are listed. The actual Board of Education policies are available for review in the District 59 administrative offices and at our District’s web site (www.ccsd59.org). Policies may be revised during the year to improve District operation and reflect changing state and federal laws.

As a Board of Education, we are dedicated to our mission of providing quality student learning. Our pledge is to serve the entire school community making each child our number one priority. To this end we are proud of the efforts our students, parents, and District employees make toward learning every day.

Open communication and community involvement is welcomed by the Board of Education in the decisions that impact the children of our District. You are invited to attend our meetings. A portion of each meeting is designated for audience comments.

Please check www.ccsd59.org or call the Administration Center (847-593-4300) for a schedule of meetings. Additionally, consider sharing your skills and talents with your school parent organizations, local school education councils, and/or District-wide committees. Parent/Guardian support is vital, so call your school’s principal to find out how you can become involved.

Finally, we encourage you to join us in improving and expanding your child’s education. Continue to be actively involved in your child’s learning by promoting reading, talking to your child about his or her day, checking school work, taking educational trips, and volunteering in your child’s class. These are all wonderful ways to be a strong partner in your child’s education.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, principal, a member of the District 59 staff, or a board member. Telephone numbers and email addresses are contained within this guide. Keep this guide handy for easy reference throughout the year.

The Board of Education and I wish you and your family a successful 2016/17 school year.

Sincerely,

Barbara Somogyi, President
District 59 Board of Education
