Glenbard Township High School District 87
According to the Illinois General Assembly, the primary purpose of schooling is the transmission of knowledge and culture through which students learn in areas necessary to their continuing development and entry into the world of work. To fulfill that purpose, the Illinois State Board of Education prepared State Goals for Learning with accompanying Illinois Learning Standards. The Board gives priority in the allocation of resources, including funds, time, personnel and facilities, to fulfilling this purpose.
The School Board continuously monitors student achievement and the quality of the District's work. The Superintendent shall supervise the following quality assurance components, in accordance with State law and Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) rules, and continuously keep the Board informed:
1. Prepare each school's annual recognition application and quality assurance appraisal, whether internal or external, to assess each school's continuous school improvement.
2. If applicable, implement a No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) plan, including the completion of the NCLB Consolidated Application, and seek Board approval where necessary or advisable.
3. Continually assess the District’s and each school’s overall performance in terms of both academic success and equity. This includes, without limitation, a thorough analysis of ISBE’s balanced accountability measure and each school’s Multiple Measure Index and corresponding Annual Measurable Objective provided by ISBE.
4. If applicable, develop District and School Improvement Plans, present them for Board approval, and supervise their implementation.
5. Prepare a school report card, present it at a regular Board meeting, and disseminate it as provided in State law.
6. In accordance with Sec. 2-3.153 of the School Code, administer at least biennially a survey of learning conditions on the instructional environment within the school to, at minimum, students in grades 9-12 and teachers.
