Updated State Guidelines for the 2020-21 School Year

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. At 2:38 PM on June 23, 2020, the Illinois State Board of Education released guidance for schools on the 2020-21 school year. 

This 60-page document has been much anticipated and will go a long way toward answering critical questions all of us share about what the 2020-21 school year will look like in terms of in-person learning, scheduling, transportation, wearing face coverings, social distancing and other measures intended to keep everyone safe and healthy, while also re-engaging students in the learning process.  

Right now, we don’t have all the answers to those questions as this document was released to school districts at the same time it was released to the public. Therefore, we kindly ask for your patience as our staff thoroughly reviews this detailed guidance and implements the suggestions into our district’s own transition plan. I have attached the guidance to this email.

Our district has formed transition committees earlier this month and has been working diligently on our plans to effectively educate our students. This guidance will accelerate those conversations, and I’m confident our district can put forth a plan that prioritizes the health and safety of our students while maintaining a dynamic learning environment. 

We will be in touch soon. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy your summer.

Regards,
John Schwuchow
Winnebago Superintendent
