Welcome to Effingham
Unit #40 District Schools
I wanted to take a moment and welcome you to the Effingham Unit #40 website. The Board of Education, administration and staff are working together to meet the challenge of the District’s motto, “IN SEARCH OF EXCELLENCE.”
On June 6, 1948, the area schools consolidated into a public school district that encompasses 127 square miles. Unit #40 operates three elementary schools, a junior high, and a high school. The Board of Education strives to make our schools the most conducive to learning throughout the area by providing low class sizes and a wide range of educational opportunities. Effingham Unit #40 students are successful in their educational endeavors and that success is a direct reflection upon the excellent teaching staff in the District.
Effingham offers a multitude of opportunities for our students. We are excited about the capabilities and the positive affect this will have on our students. It is our hope that each child will utilize the provided resources to achieve their personal and academic goals. District #40 offers programs from early childhood to young adulthood. District #40 is an excellent school system with an outstanding reputation.
I will close by stating that the Board of Education, Administration, and staff are constantly working towards improving our school district. The improvement process is endless yet we pledge to continue to provide a first-rate education to our students in an economical manner. If you would like to visit any of the schools in Unit #40 please contact us.
We invite you to come out and visit, meet our staff, and tour our facilities. We feel extremely confident that you will be impressed with Effingham Unit #40. Our staff is ready and willing to share the great things occurring in the District. You are welcome at any time. Thank you.
Mr. Mark Doan, Superintendent
