Engaging families and the community as partners to support student success.

Our district and its schools are the centers of the community. As such, the district believes that community engagement and collaboration between our staff, parents and residents are pivotal to the success of our students.

Annual Report

District 62 has maintained financial recognition status by the Illinois State Board of Education for the last 17 years. Financial recognition is the highest designation for a school district to receive.

I am very excited about our future here in District 62. We are focused on several key initiatives that are centered around supporting children with their academic as well as social emotional needs. Our team is also very focused on enhancing our safety measures in the district.
