Curriculum & Instruction Department
Ms. J. Veazey, Assistant SuperintendentWelcome back to the 2017-2018 School Year!
“In Continual Pursuit of Excellence……“Answering the Call from Excellence!”
Prairie-Hills School District 144 continues to be committed to ensuring that our students learn, grow and excel in an enriching, rigorous environment.
We strive to meet our students’ needs, academically by aligning and implementing curriculums that are aligned to the Common Core Standards in reading & math; English Language Arts Standards in History/Social Studies; Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the National Physical Education Standards. We will continue to implement Response to Intervention (RtI) in reading and math, after school programs, tutoring programs, and homework assistance, at each school. We will continue to offer after school enrichment through STEM, IMSA, and S.Y.K.E.S programs.
We strive to address our students’ needs, socially and emotionally through various programs, such as Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS), Students with a Goal of Greatness (SWAGG), and BOYS to MEN. These programs are offered to students in all schools.
Prairie-Hills Elementary School District 144 has great teachers, students, parents, administrators, Superintendent and Board of Education, all vested in providing the best education for the students we serve.
I believe, that this is our year! We are answering the call from Excellence! Our focus continues to be fixated on student growth, student achievement, student accountability, student learning and ultimately student success.
Thank you for your continued support and trust. We invite our parents and community to join us in our Continual Pursuit of Excellence!
Mrs. Julia A. Veazey, Assistant Superintendent
