The 2020-2021 Planning Committee continues to work through the difficult challenge of reopening our schools for in-person learning that complies with the guidance we have received from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). In addition, our work has been grounded in the recommendations from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), CDC, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Our efforts have brought together diverse viewpoints as our planning team includes teachers, teacher associates, nurses, support staff, parents, additional community members, and our administration. Our focus has prioritized the health, safety, and wellness of our students, staff, and families. Below are the three scenarios we have developed for the upcoming school year.

We appreciate the many questions which have been shared regarding our plans for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year. In order to more thoroughly address these, we have prepared a Frequently Asked Questions document. This reflects the latest information from CDC and the Illinois State Board of Education as of July 26, 2020. We will continue to update this as additional information is shared to guide our planning.
