D128 apologizes for this inconvenience, however the safety of residents and guests viewing the fireworks display is our highest priority. Thank you for your cooperation.

LHS Entrances ~ Summer Parking

Attached you will find a map of the LHS campus/parking as well as the NEW SUMMER traffic pattern.  This new/temporary pattern will be used this summer due to the parking lot renovation/repairs. Note the one entrance, the one exit, and the lots that will be closed off.  Parking lot work will begin the second week of June and will end approximately the second week of August.  Please note the drop-off areas (in green).

- If your camp is in the West Gym, Fieldhouse, Wrestling Room, Swimming Pool or Weight Room, the parents should utilize the first drop-off area.  The students can then enter the doors by the weight room or the West Gym.  

- If your camp is in the Main Gym or Stadium, the parents should utilize the second drop-off area and enter through the Main Entrance.

Parents should utilize the Studio Theater Entrance for pick-up from ALL CAMPS!

If parents and/or students are parking, utilize the parking lot in the back and enter through the Studio Theater.

Board of Education Makes Final Approval of the D128 Digital Learning Strategy

At its June 1 special meeting, the Community High School District 128 Board of Education approved the D128 Digital Learning Strategy (DLS) to be effective for the 2015-16 school year. The DLS will provide each D128 student with a chromebook for educational use.

The district purchased 1,000 Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Touchscreen Chromebooks at $430 each for the recently completed Spring Pilot Program. The District has learned a great deal about the distribution, student use, parent concerns, mobile infrastructure and daily classroom integration of the chromebooks as a result of the pilot program. Student and staff response has been overwhelmingly positive. The Board’s unanimous vote included the approval of purchasing the remaining 2,600 chromebooks needed for all students for use during the 2015-16 school year.  

At the meeting, the Board also approved a cost-share program between the District and D128 families. Families will pay $50 per year for the device and pay a total of $200 over four years while in the district. The student will then own the device at the end of his/her tenure in D128. The District would subsidize the remainder of the cost ($230) for each device. Next year’s seniors, juniors and sophomores will have the option of buying their chromebooks by paying the remaining balance of $200 at the time they graduate.

The District will also provide a laptop, chromebook or tablet for certified staff members.
Sustained professional development for both students and teachers will be a linchpin in the district’s efforts to realize overall success with the DLS. Designated staff will deliver professional development in the areas of technology, instruction and literacy and integrate all other building and district level professional development resources.  Each school will have professional development facilitators available on a full-time basis.
