Lake Bluff teachers perfecting application of new Common Core Standards
The hallways are empty, the classrooms dark, but a trio of reading specialists at Lake Bluff District 65 spent time last week sorting through cartons of material to decide what to use in the upcoming school year. “This book is worth something, but the rest of the books in here are just sales materials,” Denise Salit told her coworkers, as the team consolidated several large boxes of items into what they agreed will best serve the teachers and students to align with Common Core standards this school year.

Lake Bluff District 65 to offer ‘blended’ pre-K this fall
Lake Bluff Elementary School District 65 will launch its first pre-kindergarten program for typically-developing 3- and 4-year-olds this fall. The district was already running a program for kids with special needs, which will now be open to all in-district pre-schoolers as a blended program. The pre-kindergarten teachers will instruct all children in the new program, regardless of their ability. Speech/language pathologists, reading specialists, occupational therapists and other support staff will work with children in the classroom who require support.
