FOR THE CHILDREN
According to the Illinois School Code, children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 may begin school. Based upon an assessment of a child’s school readiness, a school district may choose to permit a child to attend school prior to that date, or it may choose not to do so.
If your child is preparing to attend college, this information on scholarships may be helpful.
When moving to a new location, it is important to know who to call when you have an emergency or you need help. Below are some organizations you will find useful.
