Prairie View Grade School is one of two schools in the state of Illinois to be selected for the Beacon School Award for the 2016-2017 school year! The Beacon School Award is presented by Imagine Learning to schools that demonstrate exemplary usage and implementation of the Imagine Learning program for English learners. Congratulations Prairie View EL staff!
Imagine Learning is a digital language and literacy software program that is utilized by Central 301 English learner students (primarily at the K-5 level) to accelerate overall English language and literacy development. The program does this through direct instruction in oral language, basic and academic vocabulary, grammar, phonological awareness, reading fluency, and listening and reading comprehension. The Imagine Learning program was first implemented in the district during the 2015-2016 school year and its usage has grown as we continue to see gains in the English language and literacy skills of our English learner students.
