SuperintendentThe e-Newsletter video for April features students that participate in the Lincoln-Way High School District 210 spring musicals. Two students from each high school musical were asked to participate and share with the public what their musical was all about and what role they each played. My thanks to the students that participated in the interview. Student leads are: Steven Beemsterboer, Jessica Cepolski from Lincoln-Way Central; Tim Michuda and Hanna Samawi from Lincoln-Way East; Mollie Ciszek and Rachel Rehm from Lincoln-Way North; and Danny Puig and Adam Webb from Lincoln-Way West.

Steven Beemsterboer and Jessica Cepolski are the two leads in Lincoln-Way Central’s production of Footloose. The dates for Footloose are Thursday, April 10, Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12. Starting time for all musicals is 7:00 p.m. General admission price for all musicals is $10.

Hanna Samawi and Tim Michuda are the two leads in Lincoln-Way East’s production of Beauty and the Beast. The dates for Beauty and the Beast are Thursday, April 3, Friday, April 4, and Saturday April 5.

Asking for Parent Input:
As partners with us in education, we are asking for your help. Beginning March 17 through April 25, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is asking every school give a survey to students, teachers and parents covering the following areas: Effective Leadership, Collaborative Teachers, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, and Ambitious Instruction. Research has found that schools strong in these five areas are more likely to improve student outcomes.

Please complete the short questionnaire for the Illinois 5Essentials Survey by April 25, 2014. For your convenience use the following link:

Academic Highlights:
Part of this week we had a sampling of our students and teachers involved in piloting the new format for state testing that will go into effect starting with the 2014-2015 school year. The tests the students piloted this week will not be part of their school record, but are an opportunity for us to catch a preview of what is to come. The state of Illinois is looking at the PARCC tests to replace the PSAE state-wide tests. Lincoln-Way District 210 was chosen to be a pilot school.

I have had a few questions about the Lincoln-Way District 210 ratio of administrators to pupils. Information gathered from additional research on the Illinois Interactive Report Card site regarding per pupil ratio to administrators in district shows:
