A: Thanks for your question. If your doctor’s office does not have a state health form to complete, you can print this one: State of Illinois Student Health Form
A: Thank you for your question. The short answer is some time after August 9. UMS and UHS students received their schedules at Centralized Registration. Each elementary school has a different way of posting the classroom rosters. However, all rosters should be available by the Friday prior to the first day of school.
A: Thank you for your question. SB means that the teacher uses the Standards Based (SB) grade book. SB could appear after any class depending on the assessment approach of the teacher. Mathematics at sixth grade is not a leveled class, and we provide a differentiated instructional model similar to elementary school.
A: Thanks for your question! USD #116 enrollment sits at 4,449 students (2016-17 school year). This includes our six elementary schools, middle school, and high school. Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) does a good job keeping track of district enrollment figures and demographics at the Illinois School Report Card web site.
