2021-2022 Student & Family Handbook
622 students and families,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! We are excited to have our students back in our classrooms. We also welcome the over 500 students enrolled in 622 Online, our new K-12 online school.
As the result of a generous donation by 3M, along with some of our federal pandemic funds, we became a one-to-one district last year, meaning that each of our students in PreK-Grade 12 uses a district-owned learning device. Education delivery changed during the pandemic and the use of learning technologies will continue as we move forward.
The transformation of District 622 facilities continues with extensive remodeling projects at Carver, John Glenn, and Skyview as well as the construction of new buildings at the Eagle Point property and the new Justice Alan Page Elementary on the current Maplewood Middle property. New secure entry projects are underway at Weaver and Gladstone. Expansion and secure entry projects will begin soon at North and Tartan. District 622 is so thankful for the support of our community for these much-needed updates with the approval of the bond referendum in 2019. Next fall, all of the projects, except for the high schools, will wrap up and our new buildings will open.
As you go to the polls in November, you will see that District 622 has two questions on the ballot. The first question seeks a no-tax-increase renewal of the existing operating levy and the second question asks voters to consider a capital projects levy to support our classroom technology needs, including supporting a replacement cycle of the devices used by students as well as technology staff and digital curriculum. District 622 has never had a technology levy before but our advances in technology use require the steady funding source that a levy referendum provides. If you have any questions, visit the District 622 Levy 2021 website.
Your support continues to be what makes District 622 successful in meeting the needs of our learners.
