Featured District Story
Community Engagement and the Board of Education
A call for volunteers was made earlier this year in a Board initiative to engage the community in the development of a strategic plan for the District’s next 5-7 years. Over 40 community members and teachers have agreed to participate as a member of the Advisory Committee and have already started a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) around the 6 Pillars related to student achievement previously identified by the Board. Those 6 Pillars are:
Our last meeting for the year will be held on Tuesday, April 29th from 6:30-8:30. Even if you haven’t participated to this point, please consider attending this meeting as we open up discussion around the 6 pillars. Everyone is invited! Our ultimate goal is to provide information to the Board of Education as they develop goals to take the District through 2020.

From the Superintendent's Desk
On Thursday, November 7 at 7:00, the Annual Report will be presented to the Board of Education in a Special Meeting to be held in the Cafetorium. The public is invited and we hope you will be able to attend. Student achievement, financial indicators, and other important demographic information will be discussed. In addition, we’ll provide a Bridge the Gap summary and the Board will highlight their goals and objectives as we continue to deal with challenges in funding created by significant reductions in funding from Springfield.
Student achievement continues at an incredible pace. We received word this week that the District has once again been recognized as a 2013 Bright A+ Award winner – recognizing academic excellence that ranks Tremont #702 in the top 5% of Illinois School Districts. Only 60 districts (out of 866) received this distinction. Congratulations to our students and staff for this honor!!! We are exceptionally proud of all of you!
Speaking of Bridge the Gap, the campaign was successful beyond our imagination and we greatly appreciate the work of so many individuals to pull it off and the donations by members of our community that have resulted in over $125,000 to the cause. We’ll wrap up the drive at the conclusion of this calendar year and once again are grateful for the support of the entire District #702 community.
We’re continuing to work on the air conditioning project and hope to have it finished by the start of the 2014-15 school year. The older building creates a few challenges for a project of this magnitude but the Board is committed to finding the best solution to meet our needs long term.
