On July 23rd, 2019 LaGrange Highlands School District 106 received notification that a third-party data breach occurred. Pearson Clinical Assessment, the parent company of the AIMSweb 1.0 product that is used for assessment purposes in both the elementary and middle schools, notified District 106 that both student and staff data had been compromised in the breach. District 106 used AIMsweb 1.0 until it was discontinued in 2016 and is one of about 13,000 Pearson clients impacted by this incident. Although Pearson has provided no evidence that any data was misused, out of abundance of caution, the district wants to make you are aware of this incident.
Just a reminder that August 21st is the first day of school. Come back and be with your Highlands family!
Dear Highlands parents,
I share the following message on behalf of Heather Pilch (Teachers' Union President) and John Corcoran (District 106 Board President):
The start of the school year is rapidly approaching, and we look forward to another great year here at Highlands! At this time, we were hoping to announce a finalized teachers' contract in conjunction with the beginning of the school year. Unfortunately, the Board and Teachers' Union have not yet come to a final agreement. We have utilized the services of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service throughout the negotiation process and have reached tentative agreements on a number of issues. We are now down to the topic of economics (i.e., salaries and benefits). Both parties have been working in good faith with one another and anticipate a resolution soon. We are excited for students' return to school on August 21 and for a great kickoff to the year!
Thank you, and have a nice evening.
