Illinois Acceleration Act

District 34 believes that all students across the achievement spectrum should be challenged and supported to develop their potential. For some students needing a higher level of instruction, this can best be achieved by affording them access to curricula and learning environments more commonly provided to older students. Policy and procedures are being implemented for the 2018-2019 school year to include the following: early entrance to kindergarten, early entrance to first grade, whole grade acceleration, and individual subject acceleration in math or reading.  Request forms for the 2018-2019 school year will be considered through November 1, 2018.

Complete the Request Form to be considered for whole-grade acceleration or individual-subject acceleration in math or reading.

To be considered for early entrance to kindergarten or first grade, contact Matt Silverman at
