Dear Wood Dale School District 7 Families and Community Members:
District 7 is proud to offer a Spanish/English dual language program. Any child who turns 5 before September 1st of the child's kindergarten year will be eligible to enroll in this exciting program. Dual language students will become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural in Spanish and English. The philosophy of the dual language program is to provide cross-cultural experiences for students and to prepare them for a global society. To find out more click here. Sign your child up by completing the consent form below and mail it to, or drop it off at, the Wood Dale 7 District Office at 543 N. Wood Dale Road, Wood Dale, IL 60191 before June 1, 2020. If more families show interest than enrollment allows, a waiting list will be established and a lottery will take place for enrollment.
As a school community, our goal is to provide meaningful learning experiences for our students and to educate and nurture them to become productive citizens. District 7 curriculum is aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards and is taught through integrated units of study that incorporate the Social Emotional Learning Standards and the World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) Standards. We strive to provide each student with the materials and resources to experience learning authentically and to prepare her/him for their future. It is my pleasure to serve as the Curriculum Director. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
