The Illinois State Board of Education issued a directive on August 31, 2021, providing a directive regarding current remote learning options under Illinois law for school districts.
Illinois school districts MUST provide remote instruction to any student who is under quarantine or excluded from school consistent with guidance or requirements from a local health department or the Illinois Department of Public Health. This includes students who are not in-person due to the district entering into an adaptive pause after consultation with the local health department.
The remote learning requirements are the same as they were last year—specifically, five hours of a combination of instruction and schoolwork, with a strong recommendation that district strive to provide all their students with at least 2.5 hurs of synchronous learning with rea-time instruction and interaction between students and their teachers.
If your student faces quarantine, contact your local school district to make arrangements to implement the remote instruction.
