Erin’s Law Information
On January 24, 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law extending sexual abuse education in Illinois schools. The Illinois law went into effect immediately and schools are required to implement Erin’s Law during the 2014-2015 school year. Erin’s Law requires all schools to provide child sexual prevention education for all students, K-12, yearly. The law also requires educators to take part in training classes that cover sexual abuse and how to recognize warning signs.

Superintendent's Message

Dr. Delli

Dear Community Members,

I am pleased to report that the 2015-2016 academic year is well underway in River Trails District 26. Watching throngs of students and their parents approaching the school buildings on the first day of school is always both exciting and heart-warming. The River Trails community clearly supports its schools and our underlying mission as a school district.

“Together, family, staff and community inspire our diverse student population to develop the knowledge, skills, and character ‘Inspire to Excel’ necessary to excel in an ever-changing world, while providing a safe and nurturing environment.”

I have said before that caring parents and dedicated teachers are the two main ingredients in the success of any child in school. In District 26 we are very fortunate to have both! In addition to new curriculum, technology, and assessment initiatives underway this year, our school district was very fortunate to hire many new highly qualified and energetic teachers to join the ranks of all those in our district who work so hard every day.  Thanks to a supportive community, who understands the importance of education in a rapidly changing world, this school district can meet the needs of every child we are entrusted to protect and educate. 

I look forward to nothing less than a highly successful and personally rewarding school year for our children. As always, I appreciate all that you do for and with our school district and if I can be of particular assistance to you, please contact me at ddelli@rtsd26.org.

Most Sincerely,

Dane A. Delli, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
