District 102 is committed to a full-day-in-person schedule for the 2021-22 school year. The 2020-21 school year allowed us to observe and adjust practices as needed to provide a combination of in-person instruction and remote instruction consistently throughout the school year without pause or disruption to schedules. During this time, there were no noted school-related transmissions of COVID-19.
As positivity rates have continued to decline within our zip codes, over 80% of our staff have been vaccinated, and with COVID-19 vaccinations for students age 12 and above already in place, and with the exception that continued mitigation measures will be implemented, District 102 is moving forward with planning and expectation for full-day-in-person instruction in the Fall of 2021.
