Communication with parents takes place on several levels. School newsletters are e-mailed to parents on a regular basis and are available on the school websites. Local newspapers and village publications report frequently on Board of Education meetings and school events. Reporters are regularly kept current on district-wide news and school programs. A quarterly newsletter, The 13 Times, is mailed to all district residents.

Our K–8 curriculum offers each student a strong foundation in reading, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. We also provide music, art and physical education in all grades, with drama, communications, and Spanish at the middle school level.

A reading support program expands the abilities of students by reinforcing their strengths while remediating weaknesses. Staffed by district reading specialists, this federally-funded program is offered to students identified through test scores and classroom reading performance. These students work in small groups during 30-minute sessions several times each week.

Parents or guardians of any student may inspect instructional materials used in our schools. Those materials include textbooks, teachers’ manuals, and other print and electronic resources. Please call the principal’s office for an appointment if you wish to view any of these materials.
 Assessment Survey ResultsLegislation requires each school district to report information to ISBE concerning the administration of assessments to students at each school. The law also requires schools to make this information public via the school district's website or distribution in paper form. Districts can comply with this requirement by linking to the assessment survey results.

Education Foundation

The Bloomingdale School District 13 Education Foundation is a nonprofit, independent tax-exempt corporation founded in 1998, to provide special opportunities and experiences for the children and staff of our district. Long term, the community cannot rely solely on traditional funding to ensure quality public education; private, supplemental support is required. The Foundation will raise and channel donations for creative and innovative projects that will benefit everyone in District 13.

Health Services

Records of current (within one year of opening day) physical examinations and immunizations are necessary for students entering Kindergarten, Grade 6, and when moving to Illinois from out-of-state, and are due by the first day of school.

Dental examinations are required for students entering Kindergarten, 2nd, and 6th grade.

Eye examinations are required for students entering Kindergarten or students transferring into the district.

The three immunization series for Hepatitis B is required for Grade 5. A Tdap vaccine is required for all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students after their 11th birthday.

Parent Involvement

Because the student’s education is a partnership between school and home, we encourage parent involvement. Active parent organizations, which are a good way to see what really goes on, operate at each school. These groups provide many hours of volunteer work in libraries, classrooms and at activities. They also raise funds to help provide assemblies, hot lunches, band uniforms, video equipment, and more.

For more information, call the school office or the following parent organization representatives:

  • Julie Coronato – Erickson PTO President

  • Cynthia Hunn – DuJardin PTO President
