Educational Roundtable

Roundtable is a discussion between several parties or groups who all take part on equal terms. This definition exemplifies the Village of Gurnee Chamber of Commerce’s Educational Roundtable. This effective roundtable is composed of the superintendents of each school district in Gurnee along with civic leaders, local clergy and community business owners. Established in 2014, the roundtable’s mission is to serve and improve educational opportunities coupled with business achievement for both students and chamber members.

Through the Educational Roundtable, schools now have an opportunity to disseminate information to the business community that can further enhance business involvement and growth. The Roundtable has used social media to push information to the public covering topics such as the Woodland breakfast program to assisting with the Spanish teacher recruitment. The group has also used “Myth Busters” to spread facts about educational tax dollars and how they are used.

Roundtable participants firmly believe there is a great need for the business community to get involved in the community schools. This involvement could be through volunteering as a mentor. All it takes is the business community volunteering to give back 30 minutes a week by mentoring a child in need.

The possibilities are endless in what the Educational Roundtable can accomplish in the years to come.

Woodland School District 50

Woodland Community Consolidated School District 50 is one of the state’s largest elementary school systems with approximately 5,700 students, yet it takes great pride in providing a small-school comfort level for children in its five Gurnee-area schools. With recent approval of a community-driven strategic plan for 2018-2023, the district created new statements regarding its vision and mission.

Mission: Woodland District 50 empowers our children to reach their potential by providing exceptional learning experiences that foster critical thinking in a nurturing learning environment.

Vision: Together, inspiring tomorrow’s creators, thinkers and leaders.

What Makes Woodland Special: Smaller class sizes

Effective in the 2018-2019 school year, class size goals are as follows: Kindergarten, 15-18 students; first through third grade, 18-21 students; and fourth through eighth grade, 21-24 students. The smaller class sizes are intended to help foster positive relationships between teachers and students, provide more personal attention to students, improve academic achievement and ultimately measure that success.

Dual Language
Kindergarten through fifth-grade students enrolled in a dual language program spend half of the day speaking and learning only Spanish and half of the day speaking and learning only English. In the 2018-19 school year, the program is expanding to the middle school.

Celebrating Differences
More than 40 different languages are spoken at home by our students, and school activities allow the children to learn more about different cultures. Parents are encouraged to participate in our bilingual parent advisory committee as well as help their children by participating in our Latino family literacy programs.

1:1 Technology
Each child in fourth through eighth grade has a Chromebook personal computer for learning. The 1:1 technology is part of the Woodland Inspires initiative and as Chromebooks are introduced, technology is reallocated to the lower grades. The reallocation of iPads, Macs and laptops is valued at more than $300,000.

For nine of the past 10 years, Woodland received “financial recognition,” the highest designation from the Illinois State Board of Education. The district’s budgets are balanced without sacrificing core program offerings, and its financial credit ratings are among the highest with a AA+ rating by Moody’s Investor Services and a Aa2 rating by Standard & Poor’s Financial Investor Services.

Gurnee District 56

Gurnee District 56 continues to demonstrate innovation and creativity to fulfill its commitment to the community to deliver an inspiring education to all children. This year, the district embarked on a three-year program to immerse coding and computer science skills across all discipline areas and decided to begin that program with K-2 students. The teachers have all been amazed with the innate abilities the youngest students have demonstrated in this area and admit they are learning as much from the students as the students are learning from them.

As part of its blended learning philosophy, the district will begin piloting online courses for students next year.

As part of the district’s vision statement to place students more in control of what they learn and how they learn it, students will begin to learn more about topics of interest to them through the online courses.

The district’s first online course next year will a Spanish class for beginners that will transition students to the formal classes taught in seventh and eighth grades.

Also of note is the district’s new Future Ready library at Viking School. The new library symbolizes the innovative spirit of Gurnee District 56.
