Future Trails
River Trails School District 26 has launched an exciting new community engagement process called Future Trails. Through a series of community workshops, the district will gather data and input to identify community priorities related to the development of a long-range improvement plan. Starting with our first two meetings on November 6th and December 4th, all community members are invited to participate in our community engagement workshop meetings. Each meeting will take place in the River Trails Middle School cafeteria from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. While informational presentations will be made at each meeting, the key focus will be providing all participants with the opportunity to roll up sleeves and work collaboratively with neighbors on reaching consensus on decisions that will improve our schools. The focus is to help guide the direction of the District for the next several years and to insure our District continues to fully meet the needs of all students.   READ MORE... about Future Trails

Illinois Youth Survey
During the 2017-18 school year, River Trails School District 26 and River Trails Middle School are working together with LINK Together (Wheeling Township Youth Drug and Alcohol Prevention Coalition) and the Center for Prevention Research and Development at the University of Illinois to conduct a survey of Illinois middle school students. The purpose of the Illinois Youth Survey is to better understand Illinois youth risk and protective behaviors as they relate to student problems and academic success. In February 2018, 8th grade students will be asked to complete a survey (with no names or identification numbers) that will be administered by RTMS staff members during the regular school day. If you do NOT want your child to participate, please complete the opt-out form. You can complete this form on paper, online, or at your child’s school office.  READ MORE... about Illinois Youth Survey
