HUNTLEY COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT 158 A DESTINATION SCHOOL DISTRICT â„¢ www.district158.org

THE FIRST TO THE FUTURE 2017 ANNUAL REPORT


A Message from Dr. Burkey and Mr. Drzal ™

OUR MISSION Our learning community will inspire, challenge and empower all students always. OUR VISION District 158, together with our community, leads by inspiring everyone to be: • Lifelong, self-directed learners who are active participants in an ever-changing world with the confidence to take risks and “fail forward” • 21st-century thinkers equipped with the skills of critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication, and collaboration • Globally aware, ethical, empathetic, culturally responsible citizens • Champions of personal growth and development • Developers of today’s learners into tomorrow’s leaders

Huntley 158 residents, In last year’s annual report, we centered our discussion around the theme of becoming a Destination School DistrictTM. The high-quality education we offer students has continued to attract new families to the Huntley area. We also are pleased to report that the wide reach of our reputation has also aided us in recruiting talented staff with a diverse set of backgrounds, both to fill high-demand vacancies and to help us continue the growth of our innovative offerings. Word of our groundbreaking Youth Residency Program (medical internship) reached millions of readers from coast to coast thanks to an Associated Press article that ran in numerous print and online media outlets in December 2016. In its inaugural year, the program placed 24 Huntley High School seniors alongside medical professionals in all areas of Centegra Health Services facilities. Believed to be the first program of its kind, the Youth Residency enables students to gain hands-on experiences and mentoring from professionals on rotations, providing them a huge head start on their college health science courses. That success is just one example of many significant “firsts” accomplished within our District in 2016-17. It also serves as an example of our philosophy to continue evolving, to break down the constraints of the traditional school day, and to provide students with the best preparation for college and career readiness. This document details many more examples of “firsts” we’ve achieved and provides a report on our successes in accomplishing District-wide goals stemming from our strategic plan. We’re firmly rooted in the community that continues to support us as a Destination School DistrictTM but we’re not done advancing. As always, thank you for your support.

Huntley 1 of 10 Illinois Districts Piloting Competency-Based Education Huntley 158 is one of 10 Illinois school districts selected to participate in the first cohort of Illinois’ Competency-Based High School Graduation Requirements Pilot Program. The program is targeted to spur innovation among school districts to develop competency-based learning systems. Each school district chosen to participate in the pilot will create a competency-based learning system. In competency-based learning, educators assess and advance students based on demonstrated mastery of specific skills, abilities, and knowledge rather than on time in the classroom. Competency-based learning allows for a potentially more relevant and personalized learning experience for students, in addition to deeper integration of technology and better utilization of teacher talent.

“The 10 school districts participating in the first cohort of the Competency-Based High School Graduation Requirements Pilot are opening new doors for students and educators,” said State Superintendent of Education Tony Smith, Ph.D. “These districts are modeling the future I want to see in Illinois – innovative, led by educators, supportive of the whole child and of every student reaching their full potential, and with schools at the center of healthy communities.” Huntley High School’s pilot will attempt to break down the walls of the traditional classroom and allow students to progress at a personalized pace. Teachers will guide their progress and offer seminar-like instruction, allowing students to demonstrate mastery of learning standards across subject areas rather than completing courses.

First Class of HHS Youth Residency Program Celebrated at Centegra The first class of students to complete the Huntley High School Youth Residency Program in partnership with Centegra Health System was recognized at a ceremony at the new Centegra Hospital-Huntley on May 9.​ Students were joined by their parents and received certificates from Michael S. Eesley, CEO of Centegra, and Dr. John Burkey, Superintendent of Huntley 158. The program, believed to be the only of its kind in the country, placed students in rotations in more than 20 departments of the new Centegra HospitalHuntley for at least 2.5 hours a week throughout the past school year. In addition, students received mentoring from Centegra healthcare professionals and supplemented their hands-on learning with academic coursework.

The program gained widespread attention when an Associated Press article chronicling students’ experiences was syndicated in newspapers, websites, and television news programs across the country. Both Burkey and Eesley said in their remarks that they hoped the students would build off of the experiences they had in the program to continue their studies in health sciences and ultimately enter professions that will benefit the Huntley area. Members of the class have received admittance to selective post-secondary programs and scholarships at colleges and universities including the University of Iowa, University of Illinois-Chicago, Duquesne University, Baylor University, and others.

Huntley #2 Most Fiscally Efficient K-12 District in Chicagoland Area Huntley 158 maintained its position as a model of efficiency, with a per-pupil spending rate lower than all but one school district in McHenry and Kane Counties, and lower than all but one school district among unit districts in the Chicagoland area.

construction and in remodeling of existing buildings. As highlighted in a recent report from the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center, the District has realized savings of more than $660,000 a year through energy efficiency projects.

At $9,769, the District’s per-student rate was about 25% less than the state average of almost $13,000.

The Huntley High School addition project, which wrapped up construction in 2016, increased the school’s footprint by approximately 25%, yet resulted in no net increase in utility costs.

Despite growth in enrollment, staffing needs, building space, innovative programming, human resources, materials, and other costs, the District has maximized efficiency to keep its spending rate low. Among these efforts has been a commitment to investing in energy efficiency, both in new

In addition, the District manages several in-house operational departments commonly outsourced by school districts at higher costs, including Transportation and Food Services. 12

LOWER SPENDING THAN THE STATE AVERAGE

LARGEST SCHOOL DISTRICT IN ILLINOIS

LARGEST EMPLOYER IN MCHENRY COUNTY

LOOKING AHEAD at the State’s 2018 budget and revised school funding formula,

Huntley 158 expects to receive additional state funding approximating $600,000 to $800,000. While finalized numbers have not been communicated to the District as of press time, this long-overdue additional funding is welcome. The new funding formula represents a strong effort to provide a basis for adequate and equitable funding for all school districts, accounting for disparities in property wealth and regional cost adjustments. However, Illinois continues to have one of the country’s least balanced structures between state and local funding sources for education. The District will remain vigilant in ensuring state education funding benefits all students always.

RECOGNITIONS Huntley High School was again named to the Washington Post’s Most Challenging High Schools in America list. The list primarily reflects the Post’s own Challenge Index score, which measures the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

In the final year of the ACT as the State of Illinois’ statewide college entrance exam, HHS students matched the school’s highest average composite score of 23.0. HHS successfully transitioned to the the new SAT suite of assessments for the first time, with scores to be available in the coming year. Huntley 158 opened the doors to its Alternative Learning Opportunities Program (ALOP) in spring 2017 for students who struggled to succeed in the traditional school environment. Among the 26 high school and 2 middle school students enrolled in the first semester, huge leaps were made in academic success. High school credits earned increased from 26.5 in the first semester to 65 in ALOP, and the attendance rate increased by 16%. In addition, two students successfully completed graduation requirements.

COLLEGE READINESS

14%

Increase in AP/Dual Credit enrollment

HHS hosted its first-ever IACACRecognized College Fair, attracting more than 125 colleges and universities and students from 22 area high schools. Recognition as a host site is a marker of both the local area’s importance as a high-growth population center and as a producer of high-quality, college-bound students.

LANGUAGE MASTERY

 59% 29% 2% 2.5% 2%

A total of 1,169 AP tests were administered, and students earned 256 passing grades in dual credit courses, totaling an increase in college credit opportunities of 10% year-to-year.

IN THE NEWS A NIGHT TO REMEMBER HHS promgoers were the envy of millions of teens worldwide when the Grammy-winning duo The Chainsmokers dropped in on the school’s celebration. Invited by a student weeks prior, the group worked secretly with high school principal Dr. Scott Rowe to plan the surprise. Footage quickly went viral and made the rounds on top television, radio, online, social and print media outlets, from the Today Show and Good Morning America to People, Buzzfeed, and MTV. A number of students and staff were interviewed by outlets across the U.S. to tell the story. “The kids weren’t exactly sure what was going on,” Rowe said. “About three words in somebody screamed ‘That’s The Chainsmokers!’ and they just bum-rushed the stage. It says a lot about those guys and how cool they are to their fans.”

ONE-OF-A-KIND EXPERIENCE A Daily Herald article on Huntley High School’s groundbreaking Youth Residency Program, which launched in 2016 with 24 students receiving intensive hands-on experiences and mentoring from healthcare professionals at Centegra Hospital-Huntley, was syndicated across major media outlets throughout the United States over the holiday season. The article was picked up by the Associated Press and ran in both online and print editions of several U.S. newspapers. Among them were the Washington Times, Charlotte Observer, San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, San Antonio Express News, San Francisco Gate, Seattle Post Intelligencer, and many more. “It’s a pretty unique experience,” said senior Harpal Singh, who is now in college in preparation to become a doctor. “It’s giving a quick glimpse into the future.”

EDUCATION LEADERSHIP From leading the largest K-12 1:1 device initiative in the State of Illinois to pioneering the Alpha Courses Blended Learning Program to creating the one-of-a-kind HHS Youth Residency Program, Huntley 158 has been cited regularly in education industry publications as a leader driving innovation in the U.S. public education system. Education Week, the largest education-focused publication in the U.S., featured Huntley 158 among the 10 districts selected to participate in the State of Illinois’ competency-based learning pilot. In addition, leading trade publications including Ed Tech: Focus on K-12, Tech & Learning and Getting Smart featured the District in articles offering other school districts practical guidance on creating their own innovative programs.
