During the 2018 and 2019 school year, the West Elementary and Grafton Elementary Preschool for All programs were required to complete monitoring visits conducted by the Illinois State Board of Education. During the monitoring visits, assessors collected evidence using the Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale-Third Edition (ECERS-3) and the ISBE Compliance Checklist.
Each program site was awarded a Gold Circle of Quality, which is the highest standard awarded to programs by ISBE. CONGRATULATIONS to the Prekindergarten teachers and paraprofessionals who work diligently to meet all students needs while maintaining a high quality program!!
