 District 112 takes pride in our collective work to serve the students and families of our communities. In the last several years, we have embedded a continuous improvement expectationinto virtually every aspect of our programs and services. This expectation meant that during the2010-2011 school year, we continued the implementation of our Secondary Redesign Initiative,
began serious work on implementation strategies for our elementary schools’ INSPIRE initiative,
and engaged staff and community in dialogue to identify current strengths and future goals. Below is a summary of our achievements and standardized testing results for the 2010-11 school year.
