Subject: Full Remote Learning Programming Plans for 2021-22
Vision 2022:
Policy:
Background This year, the Illinois State Board of Education required all school districts to offer a full remote learning option for students who did not feel comfortable returning to in-person learning. For families requesting a full remote option, the Virtual Academy was established for EC-8 students, and concurrent teaching was used at the high school level. On March 9, the Illinois State Board of Education provided updated guidance for school districts regarding the requirement for remote learning. This guidance shifted from a required option for all to requiring an option for those with medical exemptions only.

Summary: On May 19, the Illinois State Board of Education passed a resolution to allow the State Superintendent to require in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year. This resolution requires school districts to only provide remote learning for students who are both not eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine and also under quarantine. On Wednesday evening, the administration will provide an update on our plans for full remote learning based on this new guidance.
