April 3, 2020 – The following is a letter that was sent from Superintendent Paul Enderle to the District 123 community.
All of us at District 123 hope you had a great week of Remote eLearning! Words cannot express my pride and gratitude for what we accomplished as an entire learning community.
I am incredibly proud of our children, our staff and our families. We have met this challenge head-on, and I would like to personally thank all of you for pulling together as we strive to provide the best continuity of learning for our community’s children.
Never in my career as an educator would I have expected that we would be connecting and engaging our young learners and their families in a long-term remote fashion. I am confident that whenever this ends, our learning community will together emerge stronger.
After using this remote approach over the past week we want to capture some timely feedback and input from our families. We will use this data to enhance our plan to best meet the needs of our students and the entire District 123 community. We hope to publish some additional guidance next week based on your input and feedback. We are proud of our learning environment in District 123, whether in person or remotely, and strive to work towards making it the best it can be for students and staff.
This survey is open to all District 123 families and is completely anonymous. Please take a few moments today and share your feedback about our Remote eLearning program so far.
