The District 123 school community has been fully immersed in reopening collaborations and planning since May 2020. At the July 21, 2020 District 123 Committee of the Whole Meeting, administration presented the “Together Again – Return to School Plan” to the Board of Education. The plan offers the students, staff, and families of District 123 the safest and most effective in-person re-entry to the 2020-2021 school year and has incorporated the entire community’s voice as a foundational element. The primary goals of the plan are to maintain:
1. The health and safety of all students and staff
2. A “slow and smart” approach for the return of all students
3. Contingencies for various shifts in the public health landscape
4. Flexibility based on guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education, Illinois Department of Public Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention
5. Multiple instructional options to all District 123 families
Any questions or concerns can be sent to WeGotThis@d123.org
Additionally, Superintendent Dr. Paul Enderle shared the plan with the community on July 22, 2020 during the Facebook “Lunchtime Live.” The recording of the presentation can be found below.
