District 65 will continue to use funds from Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds to purchase the necessary supplies for all students in kindergarten through eighth grade (and all grade levels at Park) for the 2022-2023 school year. There will be no supply lists for families to purchase from or fees for instructional school supplies. We hope this will relieve some of the financial burden and provide parents and caregivers with one less thing to worry about. All classrooms will be equipped with supplies and materials for student learning as needed throughout the school year. In addition, all supplies will continue to be provided for students in early childhood programs.
Participation fees will continue to be collected as necessary. Scholarships may be available for certain participation fees by contacting your child’s school.
