  • MCL Seal of Biliteracy, Class of 2020
    New Trier's Modern and Classical Languages Department is proud to award the Seal of Biliteracy to 79 students in the class of 2020! The Seal of Biliteracy is an award granted by the Illinois State Board of Education and given by New Trier High School in recognition and celebration of students who demonstrate a high level of proficiency in English and one or more other languages. Students demonstrate their language proficiency by earning an English score of 21 or higher on the ACT or a score of 4.8 on the ACCESS exam. Students can show proficiency in another language earning a 4 or a 5 on the AP (Advanced Placement) language exam or by taking a state approved test, such as the AAPPL (Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Languages) exam, and earning an Intermediate High or Advanced score.

  • Letter to Parents of Students with IEPs Regarding ESY Remote Learning 6.8.2020
    Dear Parent and Guardians of Students with IEPs, You are receiving this letter because your child is enrolled in the Extended School Year (ESY) program at New Trier. ESY will proceed as planned in a remote environment. Although the Governor's new guidance as of June 4 allows for limited in-person instruction, the ESY staff has been planning for remote instruction. The health and safety of students is our first priority and we are focusing our efforts on the potential for in-person instruction in the fall. Remote Learning Plans are currently being developed for your child and will be sent home within the first week of ESY. If you have specific questions about your child's remote learning plan, please contact your child's teacher or program supervisor: Sean Clemenz- ELS/Transition clemenzs@nths.net Paul Kermgard kermgarp@nths.net Deb Kind- Director of NTLC kindd@nths.net Matt Koulentes, Outplacement koulentesm@nths.net Best regards, Joanne Panopoulos Assistant Superintendent for Special Education panopouj@nths.net
  • Special Education Services and Student Services
    The Special Education Department is closely monitoring and reviewing ISBE guidance regarding the transition back to in-person instruction, including the most recent guidance dated 6/30/2020. To the extent possible, and in accordance with ISBE guidance, as safety is our first priority, it is our hope to provide as much in-person instruction for students who receive special education services. However, many factors will influence the amount of in-person instruction we are able to provide including social distancing requirements. In the event that New Trier begins the year in either the hybrid or remote model, case managers will develop Remote Learning Plans, similar to the plans that were developed in the spring, that will capture the services your student will continue to receive.
