Illinois State Board of Education
Illinois' new state school report card officially launched October 31, 2013.

The new report card, accessible at illinoisreportcard.com, includes both an Online Report Card that offers an in-depth view of school- and district-level information as well as an At-a-Glance Report Card that provides a simple, one-page, printable view of a school or district's most important information.
Strategic Plan for Teaching and Learning
For the 2013-2014 school year, the Byron CUSD No. 226 has established and implemented a committee of approximately 40 individuals including community members, Board members, teachers, and administrators to lead the development of a multi-year strategic plan for the improvement of student learning and achievement.
The members of the strategic plan committee have dedicated themselves to an intensive process of review, discussion, and decision-making regarding four major areas that are highly impactful of student learning. Those areas are as follows:
- Leadership of Values and Expectations that will Advance Student Learning
- Use of Time for Advancing Student Learning
- Development and Implementation of the Highest - Quality Curriculum, Support Service, and Assessment Practices to Advance Student Learning
- Use of Research-Based Delivery of Instruction Practices to Advance Student Learning
On behalf of the Board of Education members, I want to thank all the members of the District Strategic Plan Committee for Teaching and Learning regarding their supreme and significant commitment to this process. I also want to recognize and thank the teachers, support staff members, and administrators of the Byron CUSD No. 226 for their daily efforts with students as they provide and equip the children of the Byron community with the knowledge and skills needed for post-secondary education and the job market.

Peter Hodapp Appointment to Naval Academy!
From Mr. Egan
Peter recently received (and accepted) an appointment to the US Naval Academy. Receiving an appointment to a military academy is a tremendous honor. Not only must students be academically AND athletically qualified, they must also receive an appointment from a US Congressman. (A congressional district only gets 4 appointments in any academy at a given time.) Competition for an appointment is extremely rigorous and involves multiple interviews, in addition to academic and athletic tests. Historically, the acceptance/appointment rate for an academy is less than 10%.
Peter is following in the footsteps of his two other brothers that both graduated from the Naval Academy. Congratulations to Peter and his family for this accomplishment!
