District 15 students resume journey with first day back at school
- Photos (4)
More than 12,000 students headed back to class this morning as Palatine Township Elementary District 15 kicked off another school year.
Their return coincided with a brief letter Superintendent Scott Thompson emailed parents describing education as not so much a destination but rather a journey considering "there's always something new to learn, to do, or to be."
Thompson also introduced a new guide to District 15's travels: the New Illinois Learning Standards Incorporating the Common Core, which are new standards for math and English designed to be rigorous and relevant to the real world.
Meeting these expectations will present a significant challenge, he said, but that's true of every trip.
"Embracing those challenges -- learning and doing new things that transform who we are and how we see the world -- that is the joy of the lifelong learner's journey," Thompson wrote.
