As parents, you play an essential role in helping your child succeed. Curriculum Night is an important opportunity to learn about Burley's unique instructional program and the expectations and goals in each grade. We hope all families will watch the videos below and join us on Thursday evening between 5:30-7:00!
To allow for distancing, each classroom will offer 3 identical Curriculum Night sessions. Please plan to attend a presentation by each child's teacher. Choose the time(s) that work best for your family:
From 6:00-7:00, you can visit drop-in Q&A sessions with specials teachers and our school counselor.

Families with children attending Burley school for the 2021-2022 school year must complete this annual registration process for each of their children.
FIRST: REVIEW DOCUMENTS
SECOND: PAY SCHOOL FEE
Pay the School Year 2021/22 $125 per student school fee using the Illinois ePay Page for Burley.
In the Epay system, choose to make a 1 time payment, fill out the student information and click on the student fee bar. Then click the drop down to pay the $125 student fee option. (student ID number can be found in the student's Aspen account, on report cards, progress reports, etc. If you can't find the student ID number reach out to Celi Aviles firstname.lastname@example.org or call 773-534-5475). If you have multiple children that attend Burley you can build a "cart" and check out all at once in the end for one transaction.
Note: We are continuing to utilize these school fee funds to supplement staffing costs, staff professional development, instructional supplies and materials, furniture, equipment and contracts (health classes, copiers, etc) and more. We rely on these funds and appreciate your effort to pay the fee. If financially you are unable to pay at this time in full or have questions about student fees, please email Ms. Aviles at email@example.com so we can get back to you about your individual needs.
THIRD: FAMILY INFORMATION FORM
Complete the 3 question family information form.

FOURTH: DOCUSIGN REGISTRATION PACKET (You received one email per child)
The emails come from “BurleySchool via Docusign” and the subject is “CPS - Please Sign These Back to School Documents for…” This email will only go to 1st contact in Aspen because it can only be signed once per student. (if parents prefer the 1st contact in Aspen to be changed to a different parent or email address please contact Celi Aviles firstname.lastname@example.org or call 773-534-5475).
Burley is part of a small group of schools that is completing all emergency forms, family income forms, media release forms, etc. online using a platform that allows parents to digitally sign these materials. These are essential and required forms that must be completed EACH YEAR for all students in CPS. Please complete these documents immediately because there is a compliance due date coming quickly for each document per child.
Important Docusign Tips!
If you experience any problems with the system please complete this Docusign HELP DESK form and a Burley staff member will reach out to you to troubleshoot the issue.
Thank you so much for your patience, grace and understanding with this process. We are attempting to create a 100% electronic annual form and fee system with electronic signatures and are learning as we go. We know there will be bumps and improvements needed and will solicit feedback for improvement suggestions to make the process better each year. And, as always, if you have questions or need more information don't hesitate to reach out. We are here to help.
This year, all essential back to school documents will be completed online. Check your email and be sure to follow all the steps.
It is critical for Burley and CPS to have updated and accurate contact information. Please check your child/ren's Aspen accounts and confirm all information is accurate (including apartment numbers, email addresses, etc) to ensure that you receive emails to the correct locations and progress reports and report cards that are mailed out from CPS make it to your correct residence instead of being returned.
