Welcome to our website! I encourage you to also check out our Center Cass School District 66 page on Facebook or on Twitter @timarnoldsupt or @ccsd66.

District 66 is a K-8 school district serving just over 1,000 students in the Villages of Downers Grove and Woodridge and the City of Darien. Our learning community is committed to challenging, inspiring, and empowering each of our learners every day! We are fortunate to have teachers who are dedicated to doing what’s best for students and parents who are supportive of our schools.

Effective communication and transparency are valued by our district and we use our website and social media for those purposes. Each of our district’s decisions are measured by the impact it will have on the achievement and well-being of our students. Thank you for being a part of that process!

Thank you,
Tim Arnold

Family & Interests:
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Stacie, since 1987. We were both born and raised in Bloomington, IL. We have five terrific children, a daughter-in-law, and one grandson! I enjoy running, baseball (go Cubs!), and working on projects around the house. I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve the students, staff, and parents of Center Cass School District 66!
