  • Parents, Teachers, Students - Take the 5Essentials Survey

    The Peoria Public Schools will join the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) in the fifth statewide 5Essential Survey of school climate and learning conditions. The survey provides a unique opportunity for students, teachers and parents to have a voice in improving their schools. From November 16 through January 16, students, teachers and parents will be asked to take a 25 -minute research-based survey to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their school’s learning environment. This survey will serve as an opportunity for schools to reflect on progress since the last statewide implementation. While the survey is only required by ISBE every two years, Peoria Public Schools uses the survey as a measurement of its strategic plan and encourages all staff, parents and eligible students to complete it each year.

    Harrison Community Learning Center staff was very engaged on SIP Day learning how to increase rigor in their lessons. Teachers focused on understanding the cognitive complexity of the CCSS and developing the learning targets for their lessons. Teachers are also learning LSI strategies to increase student autonomy and incorporating more monitoring strategies during lessons to monitor student progress. It truly is a shift of paradigm and Harrison staff is very receptive and on board!

    On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Harrison Community Learning Center.
