Together Again – Return to School Fall 2020

Between July 22 – August 3, 2020 all District 123 families must choose one of the following instructional options in Skyward Family Access

OPTION 1: Hybrid Learning

Hybrid Learning uses a combination of in-person instruction and remote learning. “Hybrid Learning” allows for approximately half of the student population to return to in-person instruction for portions of the week, and allows for a gradual transition back into a face-to-face learning environment with smaller peer groups. Students will attend in-person on Tuesday & Thursday or Wednesday & Friday. Student groups will also attend on alternating Monday’s. During the time that the student is not physically at the school building, they will be engaged at home with teacher issued and self directed activities that will need to be completed and returned when the student returns on their next scheduled in-person day.

OPTION 2: Full-time Remote Learning

Full-time Remote learning is provided by certified District 123 teachers. “Full-time Remote Learning” provides students with the opportunity to continue their District 123 education remotely and in a setting removed from the physical school building but mirroring the District 123 curriculum. Some encore offerings like Spanish and Synergistics, may not be available in the remote setting.

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
