Glencoe District and Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards are used in both the elementary and secondary school districts to ensure that students have a rigorous education centered on clear expectations for learning. The curriculum incorporates Common Core State Standards in Math and English Language Arts, and is part of the PARCC consortium that has developed a new assessment to determine if students are meeting the objectives. The Illinois Learning Standards also spells out the learning objectives for Science, Social Studies, Languages, and Social Emotional Learning. Expectations for community service are also part of each district’s curriculum.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glencoe District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards for reading and writing consist of a series of critical goals that are designed for student’s to be fully prepared to read closely and have strong comprehension skills after high school. Students read informational texts and literature and learn how to look closely at details to support their understanding of the text’s meaning. They are also taught to write analytically and use texts to prove their ideas. There is also a focus on grammar and vocabulary to ensure students are using formal English.
The Common Core State Standards for math call upon students to be well-versed in mathematical problem-solving techniques. They study number systems and operations, algebraic patterns and relationships, geometry and measurement, and proportions and data analysis. They learn how to be precise in their problem-solving tasks, to understand what is being asked in word problems, and to communicate their mathematical thinking when they problem solve. Mathematic literacy, including reading graphs, charts and tables, is also emphasized.

Chalk Talk: Rolling Applications
One of the biggest downsides to college applications is how long it takes to receive a response. Rolling applications are an application type that tries to solve this problem. They are essentially the same application a student would fill out for Regular Decision or any other application type, but they are handled more quickly and efficiently. First off, instead of setting a due date and waiting until that passes to read applications, colleges who use Rolling applications read all the time. They read the application as soon as they get it, and they tend to respond very quickly, usually within a few weeks, whereas other application types can take months to process. Because of this, Rolling applications don’t offer any sort of special consideration, the way Early Decision does, but they also don’t have any restrictions. They simply offer a quick turnaround without all the hassle.
