The board viewed a presentation on how students progressed in reading and math assessments during the 2022-23 school year. Data was shared from the assessments conducted, with areas of growth and improvement highlighted for the board to review and discuss. Highlights of the celebrations include:

  • In math, CCSD59’s academic achievement and growth exceed the results of districts in Illinois and the nation who utilize the iReady benchmark assessment. In reading, the CCSD59’s results align to districts across the nation while lagging somewhat behind districts in Illinois.
  • The overall percentage of students making typical growth surpassed the 50% target established by iReady, with 64% doing so in both reading and math. Students also surpassed the 25% target established for stretch growth, with 35% doing so in reading and 33% in math. 
  • Positive district-wide growth in reading and math over the course of the school year and a continuation of the similar growth from last school year.

ACTION ITEMS

Agenda Item 7.0

Approval of E-Learning Plan Renewal – 7.01
Strategic Goal (SG) 4: Stewardship of Resources

As required by Illinois School Code, a public hearing was held to discuss the district’s e-learning plan on June 12, 2023. This plan authorizes the district to utilize an e-learning day in place of emergency school closing days, as an e-learning day option provides CCSD59 the chance to engage students in remote learning activities that will continue to advance learning during building closures. The e-learning plan includes plans for remote learning days, including up to five remote learning days in a given school year. It also features online and non-technology based activities that will continue to advance student learning.

The board approved the proposed plan.

Approval of Grades 6-8 World Language Program Curriculum – 7.02
SG 1: Student Growth and Achievement

Members of the CCSD59 Instruction Department have been partnering with World Language staff to pilot multiple resources as part of the ongoing Curriculum Review Process. The resources for grades 6-8 are ¡Qué chévere! for Spanish, T’es branché for French, and En voz alta: Español para hispanohablantes, a Spanish resource designed for Spanish speakers. World Language staff reviewed resources in the fall of 2022 and piloted in the winter of 2022 and 2023, and these resources were determined to be the ones suited for recommendation.

The board approved the adoption of these resources at a total cost for a six-year subscription and professional development of $167,411.20, a per-year investment of $27,901.86.

Amend to Begin Regular Meetings of the Board of Education with Closed Session – 7.03
SG 3: Family and Community Partnerships

The board approved an amendment for business meetings to begin at 6:30 p.m. when it is necessary for the board to meet in Closed Session. In those meetings, the board would convene and immediately go into Closed Session. Open session would then begin at 7:00 p.m. Meeting times will be listed on each agenda as they are posted.

30 Passenger Bus Bid – 8.02
SG 4: Stewardship of Resources
