CCSD59 Featured in October 2017 'Leadership Matters' Newsletter
October 18, 2017
Superintendent of CCSD59, Dr. Art Fessler, and Executive Director of Student Growth and Accountability, Dr. Josh Carpenter, were recently published in the October 2017 issue of Leadership Matters.
Leadership Matters is a monthly newsletter that provides news items about superintendents in twenty-one regions of the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA), monthly tips, information about legal topics, student initiatives, and other relevant topics.
The four-page article discussed in detail the challenge in determining a meaningful way to assess growth, evaluating a student’s true progress in various areas, establishing an appropriate curriculum, focusing on social-emotional learning, understanding PARCC scores, and reporting student growth metrics. CCSD59’s strategy on these assessment factors was shared to provide other districts with our foundation for assessing the whole child beyond the single aspect of a standardized test score.
The October 2017 Leadership Matters newsletter also features CCSD59’s students and staff members. Our district is proudly represented in an article about all the great ways Illinois schools helped provide relief and support to people impacted by hurricanes.
Check out how our district is represented in both articles of this month’s edition.
