Through the generous gifts of donors, the District 214 Education Foundation is awarding nearly $90,000 in collegiate scholarships - a record amount - to more than 70 graduating seniors. The recipients represent every school in District 214, including its specialized schools.
Startup Showcase is the culmination of a year of critical thinking, collaboration and inspiration. Groups pitch their ideas to judges for a shot at a financial award to further their postsecondary plans. Six teams of entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to an expert panel of judges for the chance to win $2,500 for their team and a free internship experience, all made possible with the financial support of the District 214 Education Foundation.
Each year, the Richard W. Calisch Arts Unlimited Award is presented to the District 214 senior who best exemplifies creative excellence in the arts.
District 214 students’ success in the annual IHSA Journalism competition has continued, with eight students placing in the State Finals.
The High School District 214 Board of Education honored nine individuals with the District’s Distinguished Service Awards. The awards are given annually to people who have made significant contributions to the District and its students.
A pandemic initially expected to affect schools for a few weeks had dragged on for months. The circumstances were challenging the patience and resilience of students and teachers alike and impeding District 214’s usual practice of placing students in work-based learning experiences.
June 17 launch for Community Speaker Series from D214 and LWV

The initial event is virtual and will focus on bystander intervention training in response to a rise in anti-Asian harassment.

Block Schedule Pilot
Having adopted block schedules during the 2020-2021 school year to better accommodate student and staff needs during hybrid learning, District 214 will now implement block schedules for all of its comprehensive high schools as a pilot program.
District 214 reached this decision after receiving positive feedback about this year’s schedule from students, parents and teachers and additional positive feedback by way of parent surveys. Additional details of the schedule and several potential advantages identified by District 214 may be found here.
After the pilot concludes, we will review data and once again survey students, parents and staff regarding future years’ schedules.
