     Welcome to The Paxton-Buckley-Loda School District
                             Home of the Panthers
    - Excellence through Rigor, Relevance & Relationships -


Paxton-Buckley-Loda CUSD No. 10 was formed in 1990 from the Paxton and Buckley-Loda School Districts. The Paxton-Buckley-Loda Community Unit School District includes the communities of Buckley, Clarence, Loda, Roberts, and Paxton along with the two large distinctive subdivisions of Bayles Lake and Lake Iroquois located west of Loda. The District encompasses parts of five counties, namely Livingston, Iroquois, Vermilion, Champaign, and Ford.

PBL includes a total enrollment of approximately 1,450 Pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade students housed in four buildings. Clara Peterson Elementary School comprises students in Pre-school through second grade. Eastlawn Elementary School comprises students in grades three through five. PBL Junior High School comprises students in grades six through eight. PBL High School comprises grades nine through twelve.

The PBL School District is committed to providing an exceptional education designed exclusively for each of our students’ needs. The PBL Board of Education has demonstrated its commitment to supporting innovative and proven instructional programming through responsible allocation of both human and fiscal resources. Highly qualified staff members are trained in the latest, scientifically research-based, best instructional practices. The District is dedicated to meeting the ever-changing challenges facing today’s youth through technological and curricular advances. PBL boasts an award winning website that serves as a resource for parents, community members, and educators. Parent and community support are paramount at PBL. The PBL Education Foundation has worked to raise in excess of $400,000.00 in order to acquire and distribute resources for enhancing or supplementing the educational programs for all learners at PBL. Students and staff at PBL are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities that impact our communities. PBL’s partnerships with programs such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Special Olympics, and Paxton Park District’s youth athletic programs provide excellent volunteer opportunities. PBL’s dedicated, professional faculty and highly trained, committed staff along with parents, students, and community members collaborate to build and foster a safe and secure culture of high expectations, respect, and excellence.

Together, we are PBL!
