Report Card
11-25-2013:   Each year, the State of Illinois publishes information about the progress of our school system toward meeting rigorous state standards.  In past years, these report cards have only included information about the achievement of our students on the ISAT Assessment.  However, beginning this year, you will notice that our school report cards include other information including:
  • Measures of School Climate (As reported by the Illinois 5Essentials Survey)
  • Demographic Information
  • School Spending Information
  • Student Attendance Data
  • Class Size Data
We are pleased to report that approximately 83% of our students were able to meet or exceed the state standards and, under the old cut scores, our numbers would have been in the middle-90's!  To view our report card, please click the appropriate link below:
Additionally, if you would like a copy of the report card mailed to you, please contact Jean Amundson (jamundson@lb65.org or 847-234-9400) and we will mail you a copy.

While these measures offer a more robust picture of our schools, this is by no means a complete report of what we do with our students on a daily basis.  As educators, we have become accustomed to looking at multiple data points to better understand the progress of our students -- and we encourage you to do the same.  Over the coming months, for instance, we will be publishing information about our progress toward achieving measures in the Strategic Plan and we invite you to bookmark this page and follow our progress through the updates on posted here.

If you would like to view the report cards in the "compliance" format which discusses the AYP status of our schools, please click the appropriate link below:

Information about School Improvement, Supplemental Education Services, and School Choice

In compliance with Illinois School Code, beginning in the 2013 - 2014 school year, students at Lake Bluff Middle School are required to be offered the choice to transfer to another school within the district.  This is offered to all students at the middle school (312 students total) because this school has failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for three school years.  With that said, there are no other middle schools in the District and no other district in the area is willing to take extra students.  As such, there are no students participating in public school choice.
