To find out how your district compares in average teacher salary and test scores, select the appropriate dropdown boxes.
District ranks were determined by the Sun-Times using actual scores from individual ISAT and PSAE tests taken by each student in each district. A less accurate measure of student achievmment are the PSAE and ISAT district composite scores from the 2009 Illinois School Repport Card.
They indicate the percent of students meeting minimum state standards. Test and salary data are from the Illinois State Board of Education. Some schools were not ranked if they did not have two grades out of first through fifth grades tested for elementary schools or if less than ten students were tested in any grade.
