Marengo District and Curriculum
Both elementary districts and the high school district use the comprehensive K-12 Illinois Learning Standards for their curriculum. The curriculum consists of a series of learning objectives in each subject at each grade level. The schools value their students as individuals who each have their own needs and interests but who all can succeed. Diversity is valued and students are taught to respect each other’s differences in order to prepare them for success after graduation in our increasingly diverse global community. Students are taught to value the opinions of others and to work well within groups.
We currently cover the following Marengo-area school districts: Riley Community Consolidated School District 18, Marengo Community High School District 154, and Marengo-Union Elementary School District 165.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marengo District Curriculum
Communication skills are also essential. Students are taught strong critical thinking and critical reading skills. They read for understanding as well as to build an understanding of authorial intent. They come up with their own theses and gather evidence to support these, which is presented in oral presentations and written analytical essays. Students read a variety of different kinds of texts and write about them in a variety of different mediums and formats so that they will be strong, thoughtful communicators.
In science classes, students learn to test their observations and their ideas with methodical analysis and scientific reasoning. They begin with observing and studying the world around them and progress to more complicated concepts such as engineering and physics. The development of scientific literacy is a major goal of the curriculum. The skills, techniques, and knowledge students learn are intended to prepare them for success after graduation, whether they directly enter the workforce or pursue post-secondary education.

Chalk Talk: Rolling Applications
Rolling applications are a type of college application. “Rolling” refers to the deadline, which keeps “rolling on.” Essentially, Rolling applications don’t have a set deadline. They open at a certain point, usually very early, maybe even over the summer, and they end at a certain time, usually quite late, maybe as late as March. During that period, students are free to apply whenever they like. The biggest benefit of Rolling applications is the quick response time, which is often two to three weeks. The reason they are able to do this, is because with Rolling applications, colleges read as soon as they receive the application. With other application types, colleges tend to wait until the deadline to make decisions, and then get swamped with applications.
