Parents, we need your voice! Parents are invited to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Survey starting January 30, 2024. The 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that lead to improved outcomes for all students, including attendance and larger test score gains. 

Upcoming Spring 2024 Assessments

Attention all Parents!

Testing season is right around the corner, and we want your kids to succeed. We have several assessments lined up for the Spring season, and we're counting on you to help us help them shine.

All Five Elementary Schools are Commendable!

It's official! Each of our elementary schools in the East St Louis School District are rated COMMENDABLE by the Illinois State Board of Education! Our School District 189 students and staff continue to grow and seek excellence in everything! Check out school data details on the Illinois Report Card.

School Bus Tracking App


Parents and students can download the optional mobile app called "Versatrans My Stop" to track the school bus location and projected arrival from your smartphone. The app displays the actual location of the school bus utilizing GPS technology. It updates and adjusts the scheduled arrival time as the bus travels along the route. It also will show if the school bus has already passed the assigned stop.


Briana Morales from Gordon Bush Alternative School in East St. Louis School District 189 has been named the 2023 Illinois Teacher of the Year by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE)! Out of almost 500 applicants, Briana Morales was selected for this honor because of the positive impact she makes with vulnerable students, her dedication to personalized, competency-based education, her passion for educational research and policy development, as well as her commitment to supporting colleagues and future educators through Affinity Groups and more.
