DISTRICT NEWS

 
July 16, 2020
 
Dear District 161 Staff Members and Families -
 
At its July 15th meeting, the Summit Hill 161 Board of Education voted unanimously to move forward with all students learning remotely to open the 2020-2021 school year out of an abundance of caution for the safety of students and staff during this pandemic.  The Board left open the possibility of a gradual return to in-person learning during the school year should conditions improve.
 
All levels of District administration and teams of teachers are working to shape what the District’s enhanced remote learning plan will look like. New content will be introduced. The guidelines and expectations will be enhanced and will be more comprehensive than they were in the spring of 2019-20. Our plan will feature more structure, rigor, accountability, and consistency of instruction within our new learning management system platform, Schoology.
 
We will be providing student and parent training sessions along with teacher training on Schoology.
 
Material pick-up days will be planned for late August.  This will include textbooks, workbooks, tablets, and chargers. 
 
Please know that the District will provide weekly updates on how the remote learning plan is developing.
 
Thank you for your continued patience and we navigate these unprecendented times.
 
Sincerely,
Supt. Barb Rains, Ed.D.
