    Bloom 206 Leads Discussion on Improving College Readiness
    Bloom Township High School District 206 in Chicago Heights stepped into the space of teaching fellow educators, leading a discussion on how to use data from SAT assessments to strengthen students’ college readiness.

    On Sunday, February 18, Bloom 206 Assistant Superintendent Jennifer Norrell and Bloom Trail High School English Teacher Joe Malizia presented at the Midwestern Regional Forum, an annual gathering of educators from kindergarten through college.

    Norrell and Malizia presented on a panel about the SAT Suite of Assessments. This session highlighted data from students and explored how Bloom 206 uses that data to strengthen college readiness. Jane Dapkas, Vice President of SAT Program Management and Policy for The College Board, moderated the discussion.

    “As a district we are honored to participate in a deep and informed discussion about how we prepare our students for higher education,” said Bloom 206 Superintendent Lenell Navarre. “We are seeing more and more of our students receiving scholarships to attend great universities. We understand that their journey through our halls is to prepare them for a bright future and we take our role in that journey seriously.”

    The forum is the latest in a series of engagements in which Bloom 206 has instructed other educators and led discussions on school improvement and growth. In May 2017, Bloom 206 and the Illinois Center for School Improvement (Illinois CSI) held a symposium in which the school district shared its improvement processes with several other Chicagoland school districts. Illinois CSI also featured Bloom 206 in its video series on continuing school improvement.

    Bloom District 206 has implemented a great number of structures and practices considered most effective on the national educational landscape for increasing student achievement. The district has raised the graduation rate significantly across the district, graduating more students in 2016 and 2017 than in the 15 previous years, all the more impressive with more students taking Advanced Placement classes than ever before.

Looking Back on Manufacturing Day 2017!

18 days ago


Bloom 206 brought together several South Suburban manufacturing businesses to offer students a first-hand look at a field that helped build America.

On Tuesday, October 3, students from several middle schools across eight South Suburban districts will visited Bloom and heard from several manufacturing companies about the resurgence of industry and what it takes to enter the manufacturing field. Speakers at the event included Behr Paint Manufacturing Managers John Harmon and Matt Smith, as well as Prairie State College Dean of Career and Technical Education Janice Kaushal. Chicago Heights Mayor David A. Gonzalez was the keynote speaker.

After hearing from the businesses, students split up to take tours of 22 participating manufacturing facilities including the Ford Motor Company Stamping Plant, F.H.Ayer Manufacturing. and Do-Rite Die & Engineering. Students also visited Prairie State College’s manufacturing technology machine shop.

Manufacturing Day holds a special significance in Chicago Heights, says Bloom Township High School District 206 Superintendent Lenell Navarre.

“Manufacturing has seen a resurgence in the United States, and industry has always been deeply tied to Chicago Heights,” Navarre said. “It has been wonderful to see our event grow and evolve over the past four years, and seeing so many young people take an interest in industry makes for a promising future.”
