(Update: June 24, 2020) The Illinois State Board of Education released Phase 4 Transition Guidance for schools on the 2020-21 school year on June 23. This 60-page document has been much anticipated and will go a long way toward answering critical questions all of us share about what the 2020-21 school year will look like in terms of in-person learning, scheduling, transportation, wearing masks, social distancing and other measures intended to keep everyone safe and healthy, while also re-engaging students in the learning process.
In District 155, we are aware of the urgent need to communicate with our staff and families about what to expect next school year. Prior to releasing our own transition plan, we want our staff and all of our families to provide us their feedback in a survey we plan to share in early July. We anticipate releasing our own transition plan by mid to late July.
Thank you again for your patience, understanding, and flexibility as our entire district navigates a situation together that none of us could have imagined.
