Policies for Community Review
We currently have two pending Board of Education policies posted for community review:
JUNE 12, 2015




In March, a concerned group of community members approached the Distrrict 101 Board of Education with a presentation and request that consideration be given to bring Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK) to our schools. The Board has made FDK discussions a monthly topic amidst our regular work and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

The Board has publicly stated that our current Kindergarten schedule will be utilized for the upcoming 2015-16 school year, but it will continue to consider the request over the next several months. As part of this process, the Board has reviewed a significant amount of research on the impact of FDK and compiled important additional information. Those materials are being shared via the links below so that the District 101 community has access to the same information the Board is reviewing in its consideration and decision-making. These links will also be included in the Important Information (immediate right side of this homepage) section of the D101 website and will continue to be updated as the Board continues its work related to this process.

Additional information that might assist the Board, and/or any comments or questions about this process should be forwarded to Superintendent Brian Barnhart who can be contacted at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  or 708.246.3700.

We have equally strong art teachers, who are eager to come together in recognizing the hard work and creativity of so many young people. We look forward to welcoming the residents of our west suburban community for this event, in the beautiful setting of Cheney Mansion."
