D103 School Board Approves Fall Opening Plan

The D103 Board of Education this week unanimously voted in favor of delaying the start of in-person learning by four weeks due to the continuing spread of COVID-19. The District will track the spread of the virus using information provided by the Illinois Department of Public Health and make decisions regarding having students attend in-person when the spread of COVID-19 is more contained.

Superintendent Scott Warren made the recommendation at Tuesday's meeting after sharing the Illinois Department of Public Health metrics, which are showing a rise in Lake County COVID-19 cases.

The district altered its in-person learning plan to a hybrid model for grades 3-8, which includes alternating in-person learning and remote learning 2-3 days per week in order to adhere to the Illinois State Board of Education guidelines that students must be six-feet apart in the classroom. Children in grades EC-2 will continue with daily instruction once the district resumes in-person learning.

In a parent survey this summer, 52 percent of families chose remote learning for their children and 48 percent opted for in-person learning for their children.
