Board Approves 2015-2016 Staffing Plan
As part of the CCSD59 mission to prepare students to be successful for life, the CCSD59 Board of Education has approved a recommended staffing plan for the 2015-16 school year that will increase support for all students and their social/emotional and academic learning. The new plan will add psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other support staff to provide opportunities for all students to learn and develop strategies to successfully manage stress, emotions, and social situations to increase necessary skills for positive citizenship. These staff will also begin to build on a college and career readiness platform. Additionally, these positions would enhance school/district culture designed to ensure that all students can achieve optimal academic, social, and emotional growth during their experience in CCSD59.
Additionally, the Board of Education approved staffing plan also includes additional staff to support our shift to full-day kindergarten at all schools, complete the staffing of the Early Learning Center (ELC), and to continue to meet the needs of our students receiving services in special education programs.
