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.”

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.
