Featured District Story
High School Nationaly Recognized
Newsweek has published its list of the top 2000 public schools in the country and Tremont High School has made the list! We appear on the list with a ranking of 1875 overall and 82nd in Illinois (84 Illinois schools made the top 2000 nationally).
The criteria used for creating this list are (www.newsweek.com):
This year our ranking highlights the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation—those that have proven to be the most effective in turning out college-ready grads. The list is based on six components: graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent), and percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent).
From the Superintendent's Desk
The teachers of Tremont District #702 continue to provide an outstanding learning environment in each of our buildings for the students of this community. What a privilege it is for me to walk through the halls of each school observing the engagement level that our children enjoy. Our staff adamantly believes that a successful educational experience begins with the foundation of establishing excellent RELATIONSHIPS with the students and families we serve. That baseline makes RIGOR (increasing the level of thinking in a more sophisticated and complex manner) and RELEVANCE (the level of real world application) possible. In partnership with an exceptionally supportive community, the children of District #702 are well served.
Our main challenge at the present time continues to be school funding and excessively expensive mandates from Springfield. In the past two years, general state aid has been prorated significantly below the established foundation level costing the District $408,000 in lost revenue. We will monitor the situation as the discussions on educational funding continue in the General Assembly. While it’s still too early to predict the final verdict, a cost shift to the district regarding pension responsibilities appears to be a real probability and an example of an added liability that we must assume.
Locally, we’ve made reductions the last four years and continue to seek ways to trim costs without any additional hardships to our program. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the County Facilities Sales Tax that will be on the ballot April 9. In the next few weeks, we’ll have information available designed to educate our community on the issue.
