Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer joins more than 400 school chiefs from across the state, representing 1.35 million students, in calling for the Illinois General Assembly to immediately pass a state budget. The grassroots initiative - called “Pass Illinois’ Budget!” - also urges lawmakers and Governor Rauner to improve the state’s education funding formula, and pay school districts millions of dollars owed in unpaid bills this year.
While K-12 education has benefited from a partially-funded state budget, Illinois schools, students, families, and communities will continue to suffer without a full state budget. Districts will continue to struggle if “Mandated Categoricals,” state payments which support special education, bilingual education, transportation, and other important services, do not get paid this year. District 205 has not received three categorical payments this year. Here are the largest funds due:
State revenue accounts for about 8.13 percent of District 205’s operating budget or $9,341,790. The General State Aid payments, which support general operating expenses, are being paid on time, however, the categorical payments are not. District 205 has not received any categorical payments this year with the exception of one late quarter payment from last fiscal year.
Thank you to our amazing parents for hosting our Honor Roll & B.U.G (Bringing Up Grades) breakfast. As always, celebrating our students for their hard work during 2 & 3 quarter with great music and breakfast burritos is a great way to end the week!
This weekend, we will be hosting GIRLS Academy with a partnership with Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority of Elmhurst College. GIRLS Academy is a one-and-a-half day leadership retreat/lock-in tailored specifically to the needs of the young teen girl. This interactive program includes small group discussions, personal journaling and reflections, and a community service project. Collegiate women of Kappa Kappa Gamma serve as role models and small group facilitators and are supervised by Kappa alumnae who are trained as education specialists. Parents are asked to complete the attached survey about their child as a “pre-test” before the wonderful weekend of leadership. I look forward to seeing our girls at 8:00 tomorrow morning. Please remember, all food is provided (even snacks!).

The Elmhurst District 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th -8th grade band and orchestra students and 6th – 8th grade choir students to continue with instrumental music instruction in June and July. Regular practice during the summer months is critically important for band and orchestra students to reinforce the concepts and skills that they have learned and practiced during the school year. Moreover, learning and playing music is an activity that should be enjoyed year ‘round.
The District 205 Summer Instrumental Program is designed to accommodate students who go on vacation and/or participate in other summer activities. Students who can only attend part of the summer program are still strongly encouraged to register and attend whenever they can! Students who practice their instruments during the summer are much more likely to experience continued success in band and orchestra. We strongly encourage your son or daughter to participate as much as he/she is able!
The testing window for the spring 2017 administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment in District 205 will begin on Monday, April 3 and continue through Friday, April 28.
