Vision & Hearing Screening in March

Vision and hearing screening will be done the week of March 2nd for selected 7th graders and the week of March 16th for all 8th graders.

Illinois law requires that all 8th graders have vision screening.  If the student wears glasses or contact lenses, screening is not required but the glasses will be checked for defects and the students will be asked when they were last seen by the eye doctor.  All SPED students in 7th and 8th grade and all students who are new to D102 will receive vision and hearing screening. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Frost at 847.353.5508 or by email wfrost@d102.org

Congratulations Mrs. McIntyre!

Mrs. Jessica McIntyre's pursuit to share best practices culminated in her recently published book Beyond the Common Core: A Handbook for Mathematics in a PLC at Work.

 Mrs. McIntyre honored the work of D102's junior high math teachers, featured in this resource book, as she presented an overview to the Board. D102 teachers use these best practices every day with successful outcomes as reflected by the 2014 ISAT data and recent results on Stevenson's 8th grade math benchmark exam. Mrs. McIntyre has been Principal at Aptakisic Junior High since 2011. "Her teaching experience includes serving as a mathematics teacher for traditional and honors students. She was the pilot teacher for the Promethean Interactive whiteboard technology in D102, helping to develop a 21st century classroom. As an educator and leader, Jessica is committed to providing students with cutting-edge 21st century experiences that engage and challenge them." Excerpt from About the Author in Beyond the Common Core: A Handbook for Mathematics in a PLC at Work.
