D102 Parking Permits

parking permit

We would like to take a moment to remind all staff members about the importance of displaying your Staff Parking Permit when parking on the streets within our community, primarily within Ogden, Park Jr. High, and Cossitt schools.

As part of our ongoing efforts to streamline the parking process and ensure that authorized vehicles have access to appropriate parking spaces, we kindly request that you follow these guidelines:

  • Display Your Permit Clearly: Please ensure that your Staff Parking Permit is prominently displayed on your vehicle's windshield. Place the permit in such a way that it is easily visible from the outside. This will help the local police and fellow community members identify authorized vehicles promptly, and avoid ticketing authorized D102 staff.

  • Adherence to Parking Regulations: Please observe all parking regulations within the community. Avoid parking in restricted zones, fire lanes, or spaces designated for residents or visitors. By doing so, you contribute to the overall safety and convenience of our community.

Change To Tenure Requirements and Timeline

Illinois Senate Bill 1872 reduced the overall tenure track from four years to three years for teachers hired on or after July 1, 2023. It also includes an accelerated track of two years for any non-tenured teacher independent of their hire date.

Under SB 1872 a teacher can achieve tenure by meeting one of the following:

1.      The teacher must be employed for 3 consecutive school years and receive an overall annual evaluation rating of at least "Proficient" in the second and third school years.

2.     The teacher must be employed for 2 consecutive school years and receive an overall annual evaluation of "Excellent" for both years.

The bill took effect July 1, 2023. Teachers hired on or after July 1, 2023, may attain tenure by meeting one of the two criteria listed above. Any teacher beginning their 4th year in the district and having received an overall "Excellent" rating in their 2nd and 3rd years’ evaluations now has tenure and will receive a notice from the district by October 1, 2023, to inform them of their tenured status.

For non-tenured teachers that were hired prior to July 1, 2023, and do not have an overall excellent rating in their 2nd and 3rd years’ evaluations. Will remain under the previous 4-year tenure requirements, which are as follows:

1.  The teacher must be employed for 4 consecutive school years and receive an overall annual evaluation rating of at least "Proficient” in the last school year and at least "Proficient" in either the second or third school years.
