    Board Members Honored

    Congratulations to Board President Marlene Flahaven and Board Vice President Stephen Boisse on maintaining their Master Board Member status, and Board Member Kurt Kuras on his New Master Board Member status.

    Our three Board members were honored and received awards at the West Cook Division Meeting on Wednesday, October 3, 2017.

    The recognition of Master Board Member requires board members to devote time and effort to leadership activities including attending division meetings, governing meetings and legislative leadership programs.

    Thank you to our Board members for their dedication to the students and families of River Grove School District. You make us proud!

    Superintendent's Welcome


    Hello River Grove School District 85.5 Community!


    My name is Dr. Jan Rashid and I am thrilled to introduce myself as your new Superintendent. It is an honor and privilege to represent and serve you and I look forward to meeting students, families, staff and community members as we begin the 2017-18 school year.


    I wanted to share a little about myself with you. As a teacher and reading specialist I have worked in diverse settings in Chicago, Evanston, Skokie and Northbrook/Glenview.  I spent the last 11 years of my career in Des Plaines District 62 as a principal, Director of Curriculum, and Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services.


    I grew up on the north side of Chicago, but have lived in Skokie for 25 years, where I raised 4 children. Our local school is a one school district with about 700 students, similar to River Grove. I was a parent, volunteer and reading specialist in the school, so I very much appreciate the joys and challenges of small school districts. My three sons are college graduates and my daughter is a college senior and plays second base on the softball team. We have dinner with my parents every Sunday. Family is very important to me.


    River Grove stands out as a community committed to its students and families. The school district provides a strong academic foundation, while encouraging students to explore a variety of experiences such as mastering an instrument, playing a sport, writing for the newsletter, creating original artwork, or volunteering to support someone in need. And, along with developing students, it is clear that the school and community work together to support each other. There is definitely a family feel in River Grove!


    I thank the Board of Education for having the confidence in me to lead this amazing district and I look forward to a great school year.


    Go Royals!

    Dr. Jan Rashid
