An Update from the Superintendent on District 67 Survey Results, 3/3/21: Last week, District 67 Board of Education President Justin Engelland shared the following message regarding the possibility of expanding in-person offerings for our students following Spring Break:
 
“Given the desire for full in-person learning being expressed within the community, the Board requested that the Administration survey the community to assess interest in the alternatives and tolerance for potential trade-offs in order to develop a detailed plan for consideration at our upcoming March 16 meeting.”
 
In response to this Board request, the District 67 Administration team collaborated to create a survey, which was sent to parents last Thursday. The results of the survey can be viewed here.

Over the last several weeks, COVID-19 infection rates have been significantly declining across both Lake Forest and Lake County. Additionally, Lake County expects the availability of vaccines to significantly increase over the coming weeks.

This is good news. It means that we can all expect students to be back to full-time, in-person learning when school starts in the fall.

These positive developments also create an opportunity for our District to expand in-person offerings for our students after Spring Break. At our Board meeting earlier this week, our Administrative team discussed varying approaches... Please use this link to read the entire communication.
