Illinois 5Essentails Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement

Parents: School Improvement Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians

Warren Community Unit School District is committed to continuous improvement. We are constantly pursuing ways to best serve our students and community. We have a team of various stakeholders who meet on a regular basis to promote this improvement.

The 5Essentials School Survey is one the major tools we utilize to assess our district. This climate survey collects feedback from students, teachers, and parents/guardians. Our team examines the results generated from this survey to identify the strengths of our district as well as areas for improvement. Next, we create action plans to address these areas to improve as a school district. Illinois has also connected this survey directly to our school buildings’ report cards. Therefore, these results directly influence our schools’ summative designations, which rank the performance of schools across Illinois.

Our students and teachers will be completing these climate surveys next month. However, we are inviting parents to participate in the parent survey at this time as it can be a challenge to meet the minimum threshold of 20% participation in each building to receive results. Therefore, if you have a child in both the elementary and junior/senior high school, you may answer this survey for each building. As parents/guardians, your voice is extremely important to us. You are a major contributor to your child’s educational team. Please take a moment to provide us with feedback. This is a great way for us to gain your insight, so we can better serve the parents/guardians of our school district.

The following is the link to the survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/

Thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy schedules to provide us with feedback. We value our relationship as educators with all of you. The deadline to complete this survey is April 2, 2021.

Thank you.

ILMEA District Festival

Every year, students from all over the state work hard to prepare selections and audition before a judge to hopefully be chosen to participate in the ILMEA District Festival. This year, students sent in virtual auditions that were judged and instead of gathering with thousands of musicians from around the area, they will join Zoom meetings to attend “Masterclasses” to better themselves as musicians. We are extremely proud of our Warren musicians that put in the hard work this year! It is truly an honor to be selected to participate in the festival!

Congratulations to the following students who were selected to participate in the District 8 ILMEA Festival:

Cadance Baumgartner – Senior Band

Return to School Plan

Good Morning, Warren Warriors:

Last night, the Warren CUSD 205 Board of Education unanimously supported and adopted the 2020-2021 Return-to-School Plan.  While the plan is thorough with over 20 pages of content regarding our plans for this school year, this situation remains fluid as we learn more about COVID-19. The plan is contingent upon the governor, health agencies, the state board of education, and the health of the school district. Therefore, we will still need your continued attention and support as we progress through these unprecedented times.

Please read and become familiar with the plan in its entirety as it will be critical to the function of school this upcoming year. Attached you can find the entire plan as well as a letter which summarizes the plan. Our team is very confident that we produced a plan that works best for our school district and community based on the surveys and feedback received from staff as well as families.

At this time, if you have not completed the mandatory enrollment survey, it is imperative this is filled out as soon as possible with a deadline of August 1. This is necessary for us to make the final preparations allowing us to operate safely and successfully.

With that being said, these difficult times present challenges. It is practically impossible to make everyone, or anyone, 100% happy with the plan, but we did our best to address the needs and concerns of our staff, students, and community. I feel our team, who spent extensive hours in building this plan, captured that objective.

This is our plan if:

  1. our region continues to be in Phase 4; and
  2. our district’s health continues to allow for such an opening.

If either of these situations downgrade, we would pivot to the remote learning for all plan which is also included in the document. This could happen with very little notice. We apologize in advance if the district must make such a quick decision, but we urge families to currently have plans in place for both scenarios.

Finally, the school calendar was updated in lieu of this plan and the new mandated holiday on Election Tuesday.

Students’ opening day will now be Thursday, August 20.

November 3, Election Day, now requires schools to be off, remote learning is not even an option on this day.
This has moved the students’ final attendance day to May 20.

Thank you all for your time and cooperation.

Graduation Ceremony Postponed

Graduation Ceremony Postponed

Fellow Warriors and Warrior Families,

I am sorry to have to do this, but we have to postpone the graduation ceremony and graduation practice scheduled for today due to the heavy rain and storms that are taking place now and the ones that are expected from 3-8 pm tonight!  We will  reschedule Graduation for our rain date of July 2nd at 5pm.  Graduation practice will also be moved to 12 pm on July 2nd at the football field.  Looking ahead the forecast for next Thursday is Partly sunny and 86 degrees, but who knows the way 2020 has gone so far we might have an impromptu hurricane in Warren that day!  I appreciate your flexibility during these trying times!  Thank you and go Warriors!
