Fall Re-Opening Highlights

  • All Professional Development will be moved to remote.
  • Three ISBE Remote Learning Planning days have been added to the school calendar (August 19-21). These will be used and dedicated to virtual instruction, gaining student voice and providing parent support and training on Remote Learning.
  • K-8 will use Google For Education applications and resources for streaming lessons (Google Hangout), talking to students (Google Chat) and posting lessons/materials (Google Classroom). Additional apps are available to enhance virtual teaching.
  • All grade levels will have a structured day with opportunities for academics, social emotional learning and collaboration with teachers/peers.
  • Enrichment classes will continue virtually to engage students in music, art and physical education.
  • Continued collaboration with FSS and Social Work teams will allow for a continuum of care.
  • All students will have a computer for at-home use and staff will continue to problem-solve any internet connectivity issues.
  • Grading and curriculum policies will need to be reviewed as we await District/ISBE Guidance and/or create it ourselves.
  • Digital and paper assignments will continue to be provided.
