9:00 AM - 2:00 PM Annual Kindergarten Transition Fair
6:30 PM - 11:00 PM Board of Education Meeting **Location Change - Von Steuben Middle School**
With the approval of Monday night’s Human Resources report, the Peoria Public Schools District 150 Board of Education voted to accept Superintendent Dr. Grenita Lathan’s recommendation of promoting two current District 150 Administrators to Principals and promoting one principal to a larger school. The three employee assignments were announced Tuesday during staff meetings at each school. A phone call was also made to parents at each school. “I have watched these instructional leaders grow during their years as administrators and am proud of their accomplishments and even more excited to see them lead three of our 27 schools during the upcoming school year,” said Superintendent Lathan. The new assignments fill two resignations received throughout the current school year.
It is time to start preparing for the 2015-2016 school year! We imagine you are as excited as we are for this eventful transition! Knowing that there may be many questions about this transition we have different opportunities to help you. This month there will be a District #150 Kindergarten Transition Fair at Hult Health Education Center Saturday, April 25 from 9am-2pm. At this fair each District #150 school containing a Kindergarten class will be represented. This event is a “one-stop-shop” for families. At this event, parents and families can register their child for Kindergarten, learn about Kindergarten curriculum, participate in health screenings and enjoy free food and door prizes.
For the 2015-2016 school year, the District CHOICE and Boundary Waiver application window will open on Monday, April 6, 2015 and close on Friday, May 1, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. Forms may be completed by visiting www.psd150.org/choice and clicking on the application link on the right side of the page (starting April 6th), by visiting a school office or by stopping by the Administration Building.
