This summer, you will be able to register your student for school from the comfort of your own home!

District 100 is excited to announce that student registration for the 2017-2018 school year will be done online. In the coming weeks parents will receive a letter in the mail that provides instructions and unique login information to register student(s). If you have not received this information by June 15th, please contact 815-544-0301 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Online registration will be open through Sunday, July 16th. Registrations completed after July 16th will be considered late, and may impact your student's placement.

Registering online will require:

  • An active email account
  • Uploading 3 documents to prove residency:
    • 1-Lease/Current Tax Bill
    • 2-Utility Bills

Registration payments may be made online at the time of registration, although you may register student(s) immediately and make your payment through August 15th. Information regarding telephone support will be provided on the mailed instruction sheet. In-person registration will continue to be an option for individuals.

Please be on the lookout for your instruction sheet in the coming weeks. Have a great summer - we look forward to having you back next year!

Belvidere Community Unit School District 100 will continue to expand access to 1:1 devices for students in the 2017 - 2108 school year. 1:1 learning describes the ratio of students per device (Chromebook), with 1:1 providing one device for every student. This approach provides students continuous access to a wide range of digital tools and resources, allows teachers to enhance their instruction, and supports student development of skills critical to the 21st century.

The integration of technology into District 100 began in the 2014 - 2015 school year through a handful of “pilot” teachers and has since expanded into a scheduled roll-out as described in the table below. The initial focus of the plan was to create a 1:1 learning environment for our middle and high school students. Based on the results of our initial work, as well as feedback from parents, students, teachers, administrators, and community members, the school district will continue to expand 1:1 into our secondary schools as well as providing greater access to our students in elementary schools.

Every 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th grader will receive a Chromebook at the start of the school year which they are expected to bring fully charged, to school each day. Chromebooks will be turned in at the end of the school year for summer maintenance and returned to students at the start of the next year. Students in elementary schools will have greater access to devices while at school, but will not bring their devices home on a daily basis.

As this plan continues to move forward, we recognize the need to provide training and support to our students, parents, and teachers for how to best integrate the technology into their classroom to give students opportunities that currently do not exist. Further information regarding the use of Chromebooks will be provided at a later date.

Summer Tech Boot Camp is an opportunity for students entering 5th, 6th, and 9th grade to fine tune their Chromebook, Google, and Canvas skills in preparation for entering a 1:1 environment. Students will be shown the basics of a Chromebook along with several shortcut keys to move efficiently around the chrome environment.  This is an optional class and not a requirement.  Click here for more information on how to sign up.
