Withdrawal Procedures

  • If a parent/guardian is withdrawing their student from ETHS, please follow the below steps in order to receive official ETHS transcripts.

    Steps in advance

    1. Families should complete the Withdrawal form at least 3 days in advance if a withdrawal is planned. After the form has been submitted, various ETHS departments will be notified and may be able to clear the student in advance. On the proposed withdrawal date (last day student will be at ETHS), families must visit the Registrar’s office to complete the withdrawal process.
    2. The student should return all materials (Photo ID, Chromebook and charger, any remaining textbooks, library books or other school property) as listed in the email prior to the withdrawal date. This will assist in expediting the process on the day of request.
    3. All student fees must be paid in full prior and the entire withdrawal process completed, in order to receive official transcripts for the next school. The parent/guardian may look up fees owed in advance of coming to ETHS by checking their account on myETHS or by calling Student Accounts at 847-424-7110.  


    Required steps on the day of withdrawal

    1. Bring to ETHS: Photo ID, Chromebook and charger, any remaining textbooks, library books or other school property.
    2. Allow approximately 60 minutes to complete the process.
    3. Parent/guardian will go to the Registrar (Room S127).  The parent/guardian listed will need to present a photo ID to confirm that they are registered as the parent/guardian of the student.
    4. Parent/guardian will receive a Withdrawal Walkabout document.
    5. Parent/guardian will visit 3 offices within the school, including to pay remaining student fees and return the student’s Chromebook and any remaining textbooks or library books.  
    6. Parent/guardian will return to Registrar (Room S127) to complete the transfer process and receive the student’s official transcript.


    Note: The Illinois School Code (105 ILCS 5/26-1 et seq.) states that children between the ages of 7 and 17 must attend public school; however, an exception is made for “…..any child attending a private or parochial school where children are taught the branches of education taught to children of corresponding age and grade in the public schools, and where the instruction of the child in the branches of education is in the English language.”
