    Re-imagining Education in District 65: A Staff Operations Guide

    Our Staff Operations Guide was developed to provide a comprehensive source for information and was informed by ISBE and IDPH guidelines and the work of D65 Let’s Get it Right teams. It will also serve as the foundation for school-based operations guides to help ensure consistent implementation and practices. Please understand that both district and school level guidelines are subject to change based on collective bargaining, evolving health guidance, and continued feedback from staff in refining plans to best meet the needs of our community.

    2020-2021 School-based Operations Handbooks

    Each school has developed its own Operations Guide for the 2020-2021 School Year. The District recognizes that each school is unique and a one-size-fits-all approach will not work in developing procedures and operational expectations. In addition, all guidelines are in strict accordance with the Illinois State Board of Education and Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines. These documents are meant to support in-person operations, should health conditions allow for the return of staff and students to physical school buildings.
