New principal this year does not have patients with Special Needs Children and interferes with the Special Needs Teams when it comes to tending with the Special Needs Children's Needs. She needs to let the Specialist do there job as before and continue to run the rest of the school.

—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 27, 2006

My 4 year son has attended Stevenson's ECDEC program for over a year now. I am tremendously impressed by the level of quality of the staff as well as the well-designed lesson plans. The instructors are well-educated and are able to apply their knowledge in practical ways. The ECDEC classrooms have wonderful resources for learning through play. The program is individualized to meet the needs of each student, and the structure of the environment is well-suited for preschoolers. The teachers and aids do a phenominal job of communicating with the parents with respect to current classroom activities and providing suggestions for home learning activities. My son with (bilateral hearing loss) has made incredible progress over the past year!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.
