Lebanon CUSD 9 Vision Statement

The vision of Lebanon CUSD 9 is:

    • a well rounded curriculum that meets the learning needs of all students,
    • that is grounded in academics and supported by art, music, and athletic learning opportunities;
    • taught by innovative, involved teachers,
    • who also serve as positive role models for our children
  • That parents, school and community work together in partnership to provide the financial and emotional support needed for children and our growing school district to be successful. Through:
    • high expectations for student learning;
    • a strong parent/teacher partnership

Lebanon CUSD #9 will be hosting a Common Core Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, October 30th beginning at 6:00pm in the High School Commons Area. Susan Sarfaty our St. Clair County Regional School Superintendent and the Lebanon Administration will be on hand to present information and answer questions. Our hope is to open communication about the new curriculum movement in education.

Illinois joined more than 40 states in a collaborative effort to raise learning standards and improve college and career readiness for all students, regardless of where they live. The new Common Core State Standards establish clear expectations for what students should learn in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level. The standards are high, clear, and uniform to ensure that students are prepared for success in college and the workforce. By emphasizing depth, the Common Core ensures that students have comprehensive understanding of key concepts. Illinois adopted the Common Core in 2010 and teachers and administrators across the state fully implemented the new standards during the 2013-14 school year.

Additional Common Core material is available on our district website under the “For Parents” tab. We hope to see you on Thursday, October 30th.

Dear Lebanon School Community,


I would like to take this opportunity to share my excitement of another great school year at Lebanon School District. Lebanon School District has a reputation of excellence. I feel fortunate to be at a district focused on student learning, a commitment to high expectations, innovation, and collaboration. It is my intention to carry on and build upon these important traditions. My goal is to allow our students to find education to be meaningful and motivating in order to become lifelong learners and achievers.


At Lebanon CUSD#9 we have a staff that is second to none. Our staff members continue to go above and beyond to provide the best quality education for our students. Our district has some of the lowest class sizes in the Metro-East area. Additionally, we continue to push technology and curriculum academic advancements.


The 2014-15 school year will also bring a few changes. The completion of the new Lebanon Elementary School, improved High School parking lot and new High School Gym entrance. Our classrooms will also begin easing into the State Common Core Standards and PARRC assessment testing.


With my “open door” policy, feel free to stop by and visit with me anytime. I think you will find me to be open, honest, and compassionate. I look forward to another GREAT school year.



Yours in education,


Patrick Keeney

Superintendent Lebanon CUSD#9
