High School Parents
It is scholarship season. Have your high school senior reach out to the guidance office to apply for the many scholarships available in our region including state and national scholarship opportunities.
Registration time is starting in our high school. Sit down and review the different options for courses with your middle and high schooler. Look at a pathway to get your child best prepared for what they may desire to do following high school. Our counselors are a great resource for parents and students to assist in guiding students through the registration process.
Substitute teachers and paraprofessionals are needed in our schools. Please consider becoming a substitute teacher or paraprofessional for our schools. Please contact us and we will provide you with information regarding what is needed to become a substitute.
Our Cook County School staff is excited and looking forward to an outstanding spring. We are in the middle of our winter and making adjustments everyday to meet our student's educational needs. We thank you for allowing us to work with a precious resource in our communities, the children. We encourage all residents to come to the schools for concerts, athletic events, volunteering in classrooms and see what great things are taking place in the Cook County School Schools.
If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns regarding the schools or the district please contact the Cook County School District office at 218-387-2271 or by email at [email protected].
