SHILOH – Shiloh School District 85 is spending the summer by preparing for the many changes that are coming to the district. Staff, building, administration, and technology changes all are coming for this next school year.

Fourth grade classes have officially been moved over to the Shiloh Middle School building, and more preschool rooms have been added at Shiloh Elementary School to allow for the regular Preschool for All program, as well as the new tuition based program beginning in the fall. The tuition based program has 15 out of 20 spots filled with room for a few more children. 39 preschoolers recently went through the screening process to gauge their needs. Teachers of both preschool and fourth grade will have the rest of the summer to make the rooms their own.
