20-21 Transition Plan
SO… WHAT’S THE PLAN FOR FALL?
On June 18th, Governor Pritzker signed into law Senate Bill 1569, which includes many educational provisions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. That law emphasizes in-person learning for all students to the greatest extent possible while allowing for a mix of in-person and remote learning in some situations in order to protect the health and safety of students, teachers, and families.
In determining the exact learning format for this fall, School District 129 will also need to heed the guidance of local experts and governing bodies. This includes the Kane County Superintendent, whose role it is to provide support and guidance for our operations, as well as the Kane County Health Department, who closely monitors the health metrics related to COVID-19.
As we await their counsel, School District 129 will continue the work of our five internal task forces. Those task forces will apply new guidance provided by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Ilinois Department of Public Health as well as the feedback from our recent parent survey in developing potential scenarios for this fall.
District 129 aims for transparency in all that we do and we understand that our community is anxiously awaiting this news. Rest assured that as soon as we can paint a clear picture for you, we will!
