  • Understanding D211 Grading Improvements for Parents

    Published on: Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 Author: Thomas Petersen

    Grades students receive in high school are an important communication tool used by teachers, parents, employers, and colleges. In July and August, Superintendent Daniel Cates sent out information regarding grading improvements beginning with the 2017-2018 school year.

    Township High School District 211 is pleased to announce an informational session to help parents understand new grading improvements and using the grading portion of Infinite Campus. Identical sessions for understanding grading improvements and practices in Infinite Campus will be held on:

    Wednesday, August 16, 2017
    7:00-8:00 p.m.
    Palatine High School Media Center
    1111 N. Rohlwing Road in Palatine

    Or

    Thursday, August 24, 2017
    7:00-8:00 p.m.
    Conant High School Media Center
    700 E. Cougar Trail in Hoffman Estates

    District 211 administrators will review grading improvements for the upcoming school year and tips on using Infinite Campus as a tool for parents in regard to grading. Though ideal for parents whose children are new to high school, this community engagement session also will be beneficial for those parents who want to ensure they fully understand the grading improvements for the upcoming school year and are using the Infinite Campus grading tool to its fullest potential.

    Mr. Rosenblum has been a District 211 resident since 1998 and is the parent of two Schaumburg High School graduates.  He has been active in the community through his involvement serving on the leadership board and planning committee of the American Diabetes Association Northern Illinois Affiliate since 1985, as assistant scoutmaster in the Boy Scouts of America (2005-2006), and serving as company chair for the Toys for Tots Drive (2016-2017).  He also has been a member of the Schaumburg High School VIPs (booster club), Schaumburg Elementary School District 54’s Advisory Council for District Initiatives (ACDI), Beth Tikvah Congregation (Hoffman Estates) Board of Directors and choir member, and St. Hubert’s Jobs Ministry.  In 2012, Mr. Rosenblum was nominated for the Schaumburg Community Volunteer of the Year award.  Mr. Rosenblum is employed in human resources management, and has been a member of the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago.

    The District 211 Board of Education received 16 applications for the vacant seat, considering all 16 applicants and interviewing finalists through a series of interviews on July 31 and August 1, before making its decision.  In order to serve on the High School District 211 Board of Education, one must be a registered voter, 18 years of age or older, and a resident of District 211 for at least one year.  Major responsibilities of the Board of Education are to express and represent the view of the community in matters affecting education, determine education standards and goals, adopt policies for the administration of the school system, employ a Superintendent of Schools, authorize the appointment of teachers and other staff members, approve curriculum, secure money for school operational needs and building programs, and authorize expenditures.
