• Remote Learning During Quarantine

    The Illinois State Board of Education requires districts to provide remote instruction for students who are under a quarantine order by a local public health department or the Illinois Department of Public Health. 

    District 28 will provide remote learning for our students who are required to quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test or if they are determined to be a close contact. Students absent for required quarantine after travel will also be eligible. Students will not be eligible for remote learning during travel or for other illnesses. Students who must be absent for extended periods of time (ex. recovering from surgery) will be considered on a case-by-case basis. State law no longer allows the option for full-time remote learning similar to last year’s Remote Learning Academy.

    Teachers may need 24 - 36 hours after receiving notification of quarantined students to send home materials and devices, and communicate meeting schedules to parents.

    Attendance

    If a student is quarantined AND is offered remote learning opportunities AND participates in those opportunities to the extent that it meets district criteria for having "attended" school, that student should be marked as Present.

    If a student is quarantined AND is offered remote learning opportunities, but does not participate in those opportunities, he or she should be marked as Absent, either Excused or Unexcused according to the district's attendance policies.
