Dear District 67 Community Member,

To keep you informed, we are sending you the District 67 Board Report on a monthly basis.  Please note: These are not the official minutes of the Board of Education. Minutes, once approved, board agendas, packets, and videos can be found here.
Board President's Report
Mike Borkowski noted the District Assessment Milestone states, “Multi-dimensional assessments are used to identify and measure holistic growth for every student.” He commented that the district is taking an innovative step to support this Milestone when an online Student Personalized Learning Profile is shared with parents this year. The Personalized Learning Profile will not only contain a student’s grades, test scores, and attendance, but also other important information, such as extra-curricular activities, service hours, and a section looking at engagement.  The goal is for the Personalized Learning Profile to paint a holistic picture of the student instead of reducing the student down to a simple number grade. Mike reported that this is Version 1.0 and the district will be seeking feedback from parents for revisions and improvements. He thanked Rebecca Jenkins and Susan Milsk for taking a risk and spearheading this project.
