Champaign Unit 4 School District has released its 2019 Annual Report in a hybrid print and electronic format.

“An Annual Report has been a District tradition for many years. In the past, a print copy of the report was mailed to every household in the District. In today’s electronic world, many people prefer to receive information via smartphones, tablets and PCs,” said Board of Education President Amy Armstrong. “Accordingly, we transitioned this report to a hybrid print/electronic means of production and delivery.”

Print copies of the report are available to anyone who requests one. In addition, the District is placing print copies in high-traffic public locations like libraries and community centers. To request a print copy of the report, contact the Unit 4 Communications Department by phone (217-531-0255) or email at comms@u4sd.org

“The electronic report has several advantages over the printed edition. The electronic version contains numerous links that allow readers to learn more about a particular story that interests them, said Superintendent Dr. Susan Zola. “Also, the cost of producing the electronic report is a fraction of the cost of printing and mailing a printed copy to all households.”

The annual report has three feature sections:

  • The opening section addresses enrollment growth in Unit 4 and some of the District’s current initiatives including the strategic planning process that will be completed by late spring 2020, and the redesign of the District’s website that will go live in July of 2020.
  • The “Building for the Future” section highlights the renovation and new construction projects that were approved by Unit 4 voters in 2016. These improvements will modernize our facilities and provide improved learning opportunities for our students.
  • The “Education Equity Excellence” section features examples of the District’s strong commitment to academic achievement for all students. This includes fostering a culture of high expectations for all students, focusing efforts to close the achievement gap, and supporting efforts to address disparities in student discipline.

Along with the English version, the report is also available in Spanish and French.
