Is there a new family in your neighborhood? Please let them know that families should enroll new students at the District 205 Center. Information about documentation needed for enrolling students can be found on the New Student Enrollment page.

Grades 9-12:
York High School (by appointment, call 630-617-2487)


Madison Early Childhood Center (by appointment, call 630-617-2385)

Evening enrollment hours will be held on August 1 and August 7 from 4 to 8 PM at the District 205 Center and at Conrad Fischer Elementary, 888 N. Wilson, during those same dates and times (for students attending Fischer only).




Beginning in August, every middle school student will participate in an Acceleration period each day lasting thirty minutes. The purpose of this period is to accelerate each student’s learning based on their individual needs. This may be in the form of additional academic support in reading and/or math or academic extension (enrichment) opportunities for students performing at or above grade level.

Students in need of additional academic support will be identified by their content area teachers using consistent criteria across the district. There is also established criteria for students to exit academic support once it is no longer needed. Support is provided by teachers certified in the area of support (math or reading).

Students performing at or above grade level will select enrichment options. Each session of enrichment lasts three weeks. Enrichments are developed by teachers and are driven by student interests. Current middle school students were surveyed in May about the types of topics they would like to explore more deeply. Some of the top choices of students include college and career exploration, critical thinking and problem-solving activities, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) topics.

Every three weeks students will spend one Acceleration period in a “home base” classroom. During this time they will receive their new enrichment choice. Students will select their enrichment option each three weeks, ranking their interests from the choices provided.  This time is purposely designed to be student-selected. This will foster students’ ownership of their learning as well as supporting students in the development of their self-advocacy skills. Since students are selecting every three weeks, students who find that their choice was not the best fit will have the opportunity for something new in a short time frame.

Acceleration will launch the week of September 5th. Prior to that week, students will engage in many of the start of year procedural tasks, team-building, and other school-specific activities. Additional information about Acceleration will be provided at each school’s Open House which will take place on Thursday, August 24th. According to Jacquie Discipio, Bryan Middle School Principal, “We are looking forward to providing our students the opportunity to have voice in their learning and explore topics of interest more deeply.”

Elmhurst District 205 is thrilled to welcome Dr. Bill Daggett of the International Center for Leadership in Education to the community on Monday, August 14. In the afternoon, Dr. Daggett will be the keynote speaker at our opening faculty meeting. That evening, we cordially invite all local parents, community members, school board members, business and community leaders, legislators, and area educators to share with us a unique and exciting opportunity to experience his important message first hand. The festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. in the York High School Commons.

Dr. Daggett will discuss the concepts of rigor, relevance and relationships and share some important concepts about his organization's Rigor and Relevance Framework. Most importantly, attendees will be challenged to think about the role of public education as it relates to this country's future and the world economy.  I predict that if you are able to join us, you will never think about "school" the same way again.

Clear your calendars now!  I hope to see you then!

Dr. David Moyer
