The Elmhurst Commission on Youth, along with Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, part of Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare, will sponsor a presentation outlining when student anxiety becomes a problem. Hear about the effects of anxiety on learning, sources of anxiety in schools, and school refusal. Treatment requires a collaborative approach that includes the student, school staff, parents and mental health professionals. Dr. Laura Koehler, PsyD. Licensed Clinical Psychologist at Linden Oaks, leads the discussion on August 29, beginning at 7:30 PM (note change of time) at Bryan Middle School.

Beginning in August, every middle school student will participate in an Acceleration period each day lasting thirty minutes. The purpose of this period is to accelerate each student’s learning based on their individual needs. This may be in the form of additional academic support in reading and/or math or academic extension (enrichment) opportunities for students performing at or above grade level.

Students in need of additional academic support will be identified by their content area teachers using consistent criteria across the district. There is also established criteria for students to exit academic support once it is no longer needed. Support is provided by teachers certified in the area of support (math or reading).


Students performing at or above grade level will select enrichment options. Each session of enrichment lasts three weeks. Enrichments are developed by teachers and are driven by student interests. Current middle school students were surveyed in May about the types of topics they would like to explore more deeply. Some of the top choices of students include college and career exploration, critical thinking and problem-solving activities, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) topics.

Every three weeks students will spend one Acceleration period in a “home base” classroom. During this time they will receive their new enrichment choice. Students will select their enrichment option each three weeks, ranking their interests from the choices provided.  This time is purposely designed to be student-selected. This will foster students’ ownership of their learning as well as supporting students in the development of their self-advocacy skills. Since students are selecting every three weeks, students who find that their choice was not the best fit will have the opportunity for something new in a short time frame.

Acceleration will launch the week of September 5th. Prior to that week, students will engage in many of the start of year procedural tasks, team-building, and other school-specific activities. Additional information about Acceleration will be provided at each school’s Open House which will take place on Thursday, August 24th. According to Jacquie Discipio, Bryan Middle School Principal, “We are looking forward to providing our students the opportunity to have voice in their learning and explore topics of interest more deeply.”

If you have questions about the changes for your child for the 2017-18 school year, please contact your child’s building principal.
