About Cary District 26:
We are located in McHenry and Lake Counties, in northeastern Illinois, within the Village of Cary. The District comprises an area of 12.25 square miles with a current enrollment of approximately 2,400 students in early childhood through 8th grade. Cary is a suburban community, increasing in diversity, with many residents traveling via the Metra commuter train line to Chicago and its nearby suburbs. It is a community where children and education come first. The Village boasts of a fine park district, many youth sporting organizations, and close knit families who are involved in their children’s education.
Excellence in Education is our motto as we strive for excellence every day. Our mission for the District 26 community is to work together to provide a sound educational foundation that supports and inspires all students to reach their full academic potential. Successful candidates will find the opportunity to immediately put their fingerprint on the district and begin crafting a district wide strategic plan to set their direction for the District.
We have five of the finest public schools anywhere. Our schools are staffed by experienced, dedicated administrators and enthusiastic, hardworking teachers committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. We have facilities that are well maintained to provide a safe, caring environment that is highly conducive to learning. Our office personnel, bus drivers, and educational support staff take great pride in providing services and assistance to our students, parents and community members. Our Board is collaborative and supportive of the work of all of our stakeholders in growing our students.
Parental support and engagement in the educational process is crucial to the success of educating our students. Building strong home/school partnerships is one of our keys to success. When parents are involved in their children’s education, the children excel. Our Parent-Teacher Organizations are comprised of dedicated and engaged parents that work to provide support, activities, and a community environment at each of our schools.
