Print PDF

Dyslexia AwardMONTICELLO (Journal-Republican) — Monticello’s Lincoln and White Heath Elementary schools have received an award for their dyslexia screening and intervention program that was put into effect in 2012. Intervention teacher Jenna Branch and special education instructor Mary Rhodes received training on how to identify those with dyslexia, and since 2012 have screened about 110 incoming elementary students per year.

The efforts have been recognized by Everyone Reading Illinois, which awarded the schools with the 2015 “It Takes a Village” award.

“The award is nice, but I think mainly I see that we’re helping kids, and bottom line that is what is most important to me,” said Rhodes, who along with Branch will be a presenter at the ERI fall conference, “Dynamics of Dyslexia” on Oct. 7 in Naperville.

Print PDF

Newsweek Top School(Newsweek) – The Newsweek High School Rankings—recognizing the achievements of the best public high schools in the United States for college readiness—have been published for more than a decade. Since 2014, Newsweek has published two separate lists in an effort to address the complexities of assessing the “best” high schools when students’ socioeconomic backgrounds are taken into account. Now, in collaboration with research partner Westat, Newsweek on August 19 will present the 2015 list of “America’s Top High Schools”—an ‘absolute’ list that ranks schools solely based on performance—and “Beating The Odds,” a ‘relative’ list that ranks schools based on performance, while also accounting for student poverty rates.
