• 2.0 Reimagining Education in District 65: A Guide to the 2020-2021 School Year 

    As a result of extensive planning efforts with involvement from all employee groups, a robust health and safety plan, improving health conditions, and data on safe school reopenings, we will launch our hybrid learning model in February. This was nothing short of a community effort. 

    We know the school day will look different and everyone is returning in a very different place than when they left. We also know that COVID-19 has had an undeniable and disproportionate impact on people of color. We will actively work to build community, prioritize mental health and well-being, and give space so that we can collectively and individually navigate this huge change in our lives. 

    We must approach every day with a commitment to protecting one another and keeping our schools safe. There are proven and effective strategies for doing this - social distancing, wearing masks properly, staying home when sick, and frequent hand washing. District 65 has implemented a robust health and safety plan according to recommended guidelines which is largely outlined in this guidance.

    Please note that this information is subject to change based on updated guidance from the Illinois State Board of Education, llinois Department of Public Health, and continued collaboration with our educational team.
