In May the Kindergarten teachers visited Nash at the Oregon Park District, Head Start, Best Beginnings and the DLR and OES preschools and screened most of the incoming Kindergarten students!

If your child was not involved in one of these preschool settings, you are new to the district, or your child was absent on the day we visited their preschool, then please plan on attending one of our summer screening dates.

The screening dates are:

Tuesday, August 6th from 5-7 p.m.    Wednesday, August 7th from 9-11 a.m.

Please contact the OES office at 815-732-5300 ex. 2902 and let the office staff know which date your child will be attending.

We look forward to meeting you and your Kindergartner in August!      

Accelerated Placement Program

  1. The District provides an Accelerated Placement Program (APP). The APP advances the District’s goal of providing educational programs with opportunities for each student to develop to his or her maximum potential.
  2. The APP provides an educational setting with curriculum options usually reserved for students who are older or in higher grades than the student participating in the APP.
  3. APP options include, but may not be limited to: (a) accelerating a student in a single subject; (b) other grade-level acceleration; and (c) early entrance to kindergarten or first grade.
  4. Participation in the APP is open to all students who demonstrate high ability and who may benefit from accelerated placement. It is not limited to students who have been identified as gifted and talented.
  5. Eligibility to participate in the District’s APP shall not be conditioned upon the protected classifications identified in School Board policy 7:10, Equal Educational Opportunities, or any factor other than the student’s identification as an accelerated learner.
  6. The Superintendent or designee shall implement an APP that includes:
  • Decision-making processes that are fair, equitable, and involve multiple individuals, e.g. District administrators, teachers, and school support personnel, and a student’s parent(s)/guardian(s);
  • Notification processes that notify a student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) of a decision affecting a student’s participation in the APP; and
  • Assessment processes that include multiple valid, reliable indicators.
