Welcome from Superintendent Smith
Welcome to Forrestville Valley School District #221 and the 2019 - 2020 School Year! We are excited you have selected our district and look forward to wonderful things for your student and our school community.
If this is your first year in the district, Welcome! I believe you will find a small community whom embraces all aspects of education to include academics, arts, and athletic opportunities offered. If you are returning, Welcome Back! I would encourage you to take a few minutes to review our district information reported on the Illinois Report Card at http://illinoisreportcard.com where you will find our District continues to excel in both reading and math on the PARCC assessment, as well as the PSAE.
Take the time this year to get involved or stay involved in your child’s education. Your son or daughter is never too old to need your participation in school activities. Not only will your child know when you are present, he or she will also remember when you are not. Contact your school to learn more regarding parent involvement in the PTO, Sports Boosters, Music Patrons, or classroom volunteers.
I am proud to report our school communities are strong and function as one district unit. This is demonstrated in a variety of ways but specifically with our average daily attendance. Each year we exceed the state average as we continue to educate 96% of our student body every day. It is important that your child attends school and does not miss out on great educational opportunities!
As the superintendent of Forrestville Valley, parent of two students in 12th and 9th grade, and a long time community member, I believe we are creating a future to be made amazing. I am proud of the work we do here and I hope you join us on this great adventure. If I can be of assistance to you, please contact me at your convenience.
