Optimistic Household Series: Module 6 Release
A decade’s worth of research on gratitude has shown us that when life is going well, gratitude allows us to celebrate and magnify the goodness. But what about when life goes badly? The sixth, and final, Optimistic Household module, Restart Forward Progress, is now available for you to access with your family here: Optimistic Household homepage. You can also view the first five modules. Don’t forget to share your family’s experiences with us on social media with #OptimisticHousehold and #54Happiness or by sending photos and videos to [email protected].
UPDATE: ACCESS Test for English Learners
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) announced on December 17th that the testing date for the ACCESS test for English Learners (ELLs) has been delayed. The federally required test, which measures the proficiency of English Learners in reading, writing, speaking and listening, was scheduled to begin in January. The delay allows districts to wait until March 15th, at the earliest, to begin administering the test. Additional information will be shared as it becomes available.
