Kindergarten Program Review

Kindergarten Program Review Process

Every 5-7 years, District 90 conducts a curriculum review of selected academic programs. The curriculum review process ensures a specific curriculum is aligned with broader instructional programming and provides a strong academic foundation to all students. Currently, the District is in the midst of a review of the Kindergarten program. For the Kindergarten program, The review process includes a thorough review of recent research, the development of a community survey, an analysis of geodemographic information, a facilities assessment, and a financial impact assessment. The entire effort is intended to determine what changes, if any, are needed with the D90 Kindergarten.

The review committee is comprised of 22 members, including both elementary school principals, primary grade teachers, specials teachers, social workers, early childhood community partners, the District’s equity partner, community members, parents, and members of the District’s administrative team.

The Kindergarten Program Review Committee intends to present recommendations to the Board of Education in February 2023. Below are updates about the District 90 Kindergarten Program Review process.
