2022-2023 Summative Designations

Dear Orland School District Families and Staff, 

On Monday, October 30th, the Illinois State Board of Education released school report cards, which share district and school data for all schools within the state. The Report Card shows how well our schools progress on various educational goals. The data provided in The Report Card allows us to reflect on our strengths and areas for growth and further strengthen instruction and support for our entire student community.

Illinois School Report Cards provide a range of school information, including students’ proficiency and growth on the Illinois Assessment of Readiness in English Language Arts and Math, the Illinois Science Assessment, attendance data, progress of English Language Learners, and the 5 Essentials Survey. Based on eight academic performance indicators from the 2022-2023 school year, the Illinois State Board of Education classifies all schools in one of five designations: Exemplary, Commendable, Targeted Support, Comprehensive Support, and Intensive Support. 

Orland School District 135 is proud to announce that all ten schools were identified in the top two designations for the 2022-2023 school year! Centennial, Center, Century, Jerling, Liberty, Meadow Ridge, Orland Jr High, Park, and Prairie were identified as Commendable. High Point was identified as Exemplary, which means that the school ranks in the top 10% of all schools in Illinois!

Exemplary and Commendable schools all have higher levels of proficiency and growth for all student groups, as categorized by the Illinois State Board of Education. 


These achievements showcase all of the dedication of our staff in providing high levels of instruction in all content areas, differentiated small group instruction, collaborative learning, STEM, music, and art opportunities, along with supporting the whole child through physical and social-emotional wellness to help students continue to grow, learn, and become well-rounded students. We are very proud of all of our students, staff, and administrators for the work they continue to do every day, and we appreciate the continuous partnership with our Orland 135 families!  

Thank you to our staff, families, administrators, and school board members for supporting the growth and success of our students!
