U-46 Overview and Information
Covering 90 square miles, School District U-46 serves portions of 11 communities in the northwest suburbs of Chicago in Cook, DuPage and Kane Counties. The District is approximately 45 minutes west of downtown Chicago, and the majority of our communities are easily accessible from major interstates and commuter rail lines.
School District U-46 serves over 40,000 children in grades preK-12. The District ranks as the second largest in Illinois with 40 elementary schools, 8 middle schools and 5 high schools.
The District is headquartered at the U-46 Educational Services Center at 355 E. Chicago Street in Elgin, IL 60120. The phone number is 847/888-5000.
The mission of School District U-46 is to help all of our children realize and maximize their individual potential to become responsible, productive, and contributing members of our community and society. Our students come to the classroom with backgrounds representing over 60 cultures making our schools rich with ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic diversity, mirroring the global society to which our students will contribute their skills.
The focus of the District is Academic Success for All. To achieve this bold goal, U-46 staff operate under the guidance of a District Improvement Plan, which was first adopted by the Board of Education in 2003-2004. The Plan is designed to transform U-46 into a standards-driven, assessment-based culture that focuses staff time, talents and resources on improving student learning and provides teachers with better data to determine instructional practices. The School Board directed that an updated Plan be adopted and implemented annually.
