Horace Mann and Thomas Jefferson Recognized by ISBE

Based on the most recent monitoring results from the Illinois State Board of Education, the Preschool For All programs at Horace Mann ELC and Thomas Jefferson Elementary have achieved the GoldCircle of Quality. 
The Circle of Quality was designated through ExceleRate Illinois, the state’s quality recognition and improvement system for early learning and development programs. ExceleRate unifies all of the state’s early learning programs under a common set of standards across multiple settings to provide families with important information about quality early learning programs in their community.
"This is a very high honor," said Superintendent Dr. Mike Oberhaus. "Our Preschool For All team worked countless hours to provide high quality programming to our students in the Pre-Kindergarten programs."
