McClure Named National Blue Ribbon School!
Earlier today, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan's office recognized McClure Junior High School as one of only 304 schools across the country to receive the prestigious 2010 National Blue Ribbon School Award!

The Illinois State Board of Education nominated McClure as one of twenty schools from our State to be considered by the Department of Education for what is considered to be the highest award given to a school for sustained excellence in student performance and/or improvement over time. In receiving this award, it is important to know:
* McClure is one of 304 public/private schools named in 2010, out of 132,000 public/private schools across the U.S.
* 420 schools were nominated by their States for this award. The 304 schools named represents 72.4% of those nominated.
* Illinois had 19 schools recognized for this award; 9 were middle schools.
* There were 84 middle schools recognized from across the country.

Principal Dan Chick and a teacher representative from McClure will be recognized at a ceremony presided by Secretary Duncan in Washington, DC on November 15 and 16.

Recommendation for District 101’s Continued Membership in the LaGrange Area Department of Special Education Cooperative (LADSE)

Recommendation for District 101’s Continued Membership in the LaGrange Area Department of Special Education Cooperative (LADSE)


District 101 administrators on January 23, 2017 recommended to the Board of Education that District 101 continue its relationship with LADSE for special education services, including early childhood education, psychological services, physical and occupational therapy, assistive technology, speech pathology, and programming for students with significant physical, mental, and sensory impairments, autism spectrum disorders, and social, emotional, and behavior disorders.

District 101 special education coordinators, Dr. Julia Nadler and Mrs. Gini Sulek, completed an extensive analysis of District 101’s partnership with LADSE in light of District 102’s indication earlier this academic year that it was considering severing its partnership with LADSE.  Dr. Nadler and Mrs. Sulek determined that although District 101 may save a negligible amount of money if it terminated its relationship with LADSE, there would be potentially significant drawbacks to such a decision, such as possiblynot receiving the same level of services in an inclusive environment, as is currently seen with LADSE supports.

Dr. Nadler and Mrs. Sulek are continuing to monitor and review potential changes to LADSE’s billing structure to ensure that LADSE continues to meet the needs of District 101 students in a positive and fiscally responsible manner.

Attached is a presentation that Dr. Nadler and Mrs. Sulek presented to the Board on January 23.  Please feel free to call Dr. Nadler at 708-485-2281 or Mrs. Sulek at 708-485-2850 if you have questions or comments about their detailed analysis.



Website Development Underway

The District 101 Board of Education on January 23, 2017 approved an initiative to create a new,

custom website for the District 101 community. The Board recognized a strong need to create a

cohesive, technological platform that will help streamline and provide easy access to important

academic, scheduling, extracurricular, and other school-related information. The new platform

is likely to include a mobile app, capabilities for mass communications, social media

management tools, more comprehensive and updated calendar information, and other

significant enhancements.

Please watch your inboxes for a communications survey that you may complete to ensure that

the new District website is designed to help you and meet your students’ needs.
