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.

 The District 101 (“D101”) Board of Education will hold a special meeting on October 14, 2015 at 7:15 p.m. in the McClure Junior High School library to discuss potential adjustments to the current D101 kindergarten program, including the potential for either extended-day kindergarten (“EDK”) or optional full-day kindergarten (“FDK”).

The October 14, 2015 meeting will be a working session of the Board. It is an open meeting that the public may attend if community members are interested in the Board's discussion as a prelude to the vote on kindergarten-related issues. The vote will occur at the regular October Board meeting (October 26, 2015) in the McClure Library. There will be no public comment period during the special meeting. However, the D101 community may email comments to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

During the Board’s September 28, 2015 meeting, the Education Committee presented its evaluation of D101’s current HDK program and considerations relating to EDK and optional FDK.  That presentation may be accessed at

 The Board’s October 14, 2015 discussion will include kindergarten-specific considerations as well as considerations regarding the effect(s) that any kindergarten-related changes would have on the entire elementary schools (e.g., related to space). 


The Board has confirmed that any adjustment to the current kindergarten program would not result in the elimination of such programs as music, art, or advanced math.  The Board has asked the Administration to bring elementary building plans to the October 14, 2015 meeting to illustrate whether potential adjustments to the kindergarten program would result in location changes to any currently offered programs and, if so, where such programs would be relocated.  The Board has also asked for additional information regarding budgetary considerations.
