We need your input on the annual 5 Essentials Survey from the IL State Board of Education. The survey gathers data related to five components found to be critical for school success:

*Effective Leaders
*Collaborative Teachers
*Involved Families
*Supportive Environments
*Ambitious Instruction


After the data is tabulated, the reports will be sent to schools and districts in the Spring and will also be included in the State School Report Card, released statewide in the fall. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

A Message from Mrs. Fowler

At the Thomas Jefferson Early Childhood Center the focus is on preschoolers. Jefferson houses 15 classes that can serve up to 250 children between the ages of 3-5. There are ten half day MAPLE Pre-K At-Risk classes, two half day preschool language classes, four half-day special education preschool classes and one half day bilingual class. Classroom activities are designed around the children's needs and provide "hands-on" developmentally appropriate experiences. At Jefferson there is a strong emphasis on family involvement.
