Again, this timeline is dependent upon the factors in the first graphic above remaining at acceptable levels. The single greatest concern is the Health Data portion becoming unacceptable based on DuPage County's Community Transmission Risk Level, explained in the document linked at the top of this message, being heightened.
I have been pleased to hear from many families whose students have thrived under Remote Learning. It's a testament to our amazing staff members, who have done a tremendous job of replicating the in-person learning experience in a digital format. For these families, if their preference is to remain remote moving forward, I have no doubt they will continue to find success in this format.
I have also heard from parents of students who are struggling; students for whom Remote Learning is simply not a viable replacement for in-person learning. It is for these students especially, many of whom are our youngest and least independent learners, that we have an imperative to return to the classroom as soon as we can do so safely.
The circumstances that exist make a perfect educational plan an impossibility. I recognize that for some, CCSD93's plan may feel too risky, its timeline too immediate. For others, it is too cautious and too drawn out. Please know that we are continuously seeking to strike a balance that best serves all of our students academically, socially and emotionally while strictly adhering to the health and safety guidance we continue to receive.
I thank you for your continued support. Please review the following articles for more on the latest from CCSD93.
