Three schools in River Trails School District 26 received “commendable” designations in the state report card released Thursday by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). Euclid Elementary School, Indian Grove Elementary School and River Trails Middle School were placed into the second tier of summative designations. The district’s fourth school, Prairie Trails, did not receive a designation based on its status as an early learning center.
“The report card results support that River Trails’ students and staff are impressive,” Superintendent Dr. Jodi Megerle said. “I am very proud of what the district has accomplished, and very excited to see what we can accomplish moving forward.”
The Illinois Report Card is released annually by ISBE and exhibits how schools and districts are progressing on a wide range of educational goals. A variety of metrics are used for this assessment, including student performance, growth and attendance. Summative designations were not released for the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school years due to the pandemic.
“These ratings are a testament to our incredible students and amazing teaching staff,” Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning Kristy Seifert said. “These ratings show that we have been able to rise above the challenges we have seen in the past few years.”
This is the fourth consecutive report card since 2018, when ISBE began offering summative designations, in which the three schools have been labeled as “commendable.”
