District 105 Announcements
Full Day Kindergarten Feedback Survey
The Board of Education is exploring the option of Full Day Kindergarten for District 105 students.  To do this well, the district will create a committee comprised of parents, teachers, and administrators across all District 105 school communities.  This "exploratory" committee will examine research around the benefits and challenges associated with full kindergarten programming, explore a variety of full day kindergarten program models currently in place in other districts, and examine the feedback from this community survey. With this information in hand, the committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Education regarding full day kindergarten.  If the Board of Education decides to offer a full-day kindergarten option, per Illinois state requirements, a half-day kindergarten option will be made available to District 105 families as well.  
 
This survey is intended to solicit feedback from district parents, staff, and community members regarding interest in adding a full day kindergarten program for District 105. 
 
The survey will take no more than 10 minutes of your time.  The more feedback we receive around this topic, the better informed our decision making process will be.
 
Please complete this survey by September 22nd.  Thank you in advance!

Día Completo Kindergarten Encuesta
La Junta de Educación está estudiando la opción de Kindergarten de día completo para los estudiantes del Distrito 105. Para hacer esto bien, el distrito va a crear un comité compuesto de padres, maestros y administradores a través de todas las comunidades escolares del Distrito 105. Este comité "exploratorio" examinará la investigación en torno a los beneficios y los retos asociados con la programación completa de kindergarten, explorar una variedad de modelos de programas de kindergarten de día completo actualmente en  otros distritos, y examinar los comentarios de la comunidad en esta encuesta. Con esta información en mano, el comité le hará una recomendación a la Junta de Educación en respecto a kindergarten de día completo. Si la Junta de Educación decide ofrecer la opción de kindergarten de día completo, según los requisitos del estado de Illinois, una opción de kindergarten de medio día estará a disposición para las familias del Distrito 105.
 
El propósito de esta encuesta es de solicitar información de los padres del distrito, personal y miembros de la comunidad en relación con el interés en un programa de kindergarten de día completo para el Distrito 105.
 
La encuesta le tomará no más de 10 minutos de su tiempo. Cuanto más retroalimentación recibamos sobre este tema, estaremos mejor informados sobre el proceso de hacer una decisión.  
 
Por favor completar la encuesta en línea (por computadora) antes del 12 de septiembre.  Gracias!
