  • Our current 8th Grade Class ranks in the 84th national percentile in mathematics and 81st percentile in reading on the fall MAP test.Most impressively, the percentile rank of this class has improved significantly since their first year of MAP testing in 3rd grade.
  • District 105 will be highlighted as a case study about our use of the Baldrige Criteria for Excellence for continuous improvement in the book Labor Management Community Collaboration Resource Guide to be published by Harvard University Press.This is a real credit to the hard work the district puts into “getting better at getting better.”
  • District 105 students continue to significantly outperform our benchmark students of similar demographics and from similar sized suburban districts across the country.District 105 teacher and administrator salaries are determined in part based on our performance in relation to districts most like ours.

  • District 105 is proud to have twelve National Board Certified teachers on staff.Teachers who achieve this certification have met rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self-assessment, and peer review. The certification process focuses on classroom instruction and is ultimately designed to benefit students. 
Speak Up Lines
Over the past several years, District 105 has placed great emphasis on bullying and bully prevention.  Clear communication and training are critical for students, teachers, and parents to collectively address the serious issue of bullying.  Each of our five buildings have several tiers of support for students to address this need.  Kathryn Heeke, Director of Curriculum sent a letter home recently to outline these supports.  A recent addition to the district’s approach includes Speak Up Lines at every school building. 
 
The Speak Up Lines are an opportunity for students to report unsafe or disrespectful behavior in an anonymous manner. The district still strongly encourages students to talk to one of their teachers or a “go to person”,  but this will be another way each school can assure that students are provided a safe, comfortable, and welcoming environment.  Students can call or email their concerns to the phone number or email address below. Students do not need to leave their name, but simply state what they are concerned about. These lines will be checked by 8 a.m. daily when school is in session.  The calls will be addressed in a quick and confidential manner.

Speak Up Lines:
Gurrie: 708-482-2723
Hodgkins: 708-784-1592
Ideal: 708-784-1593
Seventh: 708-784-1594
Spring: 708-784-1595
