facebook Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 is #202 proud of its schools designated as either “Exemplary” or “Commendable” as measured by the new “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA).

Dr. Glenn Wood, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction reviewed the results of the most recent state test data as part of the new state report card at the Board of Education’s November 5, 2018 regular meeting.

“The new ESSA system really shows a more complete, accurate picture of everything our students and staff are doing in the classroom to learn more, and learn better,” Wood said.
