School Reopening Q & A (Appendix C)

Cerro Gordo Parents,
This communication is intended to inform you of where we are at present in the planning for the opening of the 2020-21 school year at Cerro Gordo Schools. Though the Illinois State Board of Education has provided school districts with their recommendations, we have also recently learned that they may soon be updating some of their guidance. We will continue working on the school reopening plan for Cerro Gordo CUSD #100, but also want to provide you with a synopsis of the major elements of our plan at present.
- The first half day of school for students will be Monday, August 17, with full days of student attendance beginning August 18.
- CG Schools will adhere to IDPH & ISBE guidelines in making sure buildings are safe and that protocols are followed. Therefore our current plan calls for daily in-person attendance for students with an approximate one hour early dismissal each day.
- The early dismissal each day is necessary to provide our teachers additional time for planning and communicating lessons/assignments to any and all students unable to attend in person, as well as sufficient time for the required increase in school wide cleaning and disinfection.
- Everyone in school will be required to wear masks when around others inside the school. Face masks and social distancing are required components of the school reopening guidance provided by ISBE. PLEASE SEE “ISBE” link below.
- Sending students to school is parent certification that the students are temperature and COVID-19 symptom free.
Working together, we believe all of the above can be accomplished in the best interest of educating our students, while maintaining the well-being of our students and staff.
Any and all parts of the plan are subject to change pursuant to updated public health guidance and changing public health conditions. Any changes will be communicated to parents in a timely manner.
It is our intention to have a reopening plan shared publicly for what the 2020-2021 school year will look like in Cerro Gordo no later than Monday, August 3, 2020. Your input will help guide our transition planning team in the development of the reopening plan of Cerro Gordo Schools. Please click on 2nd link below to complete a Return to School Survey.
Thank you for your patience and support as we work to navigate these challenging circumstances together.
**There will be a change to this calendar on November 3rd due to the Election becoming a State Holiday**
Cerro Gordo CUSD #100
Remote Learning Day Plan
Approved: March 2020
In compliance with Executive Order 2020-15, issued by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker on March 27, 2020, Cerro Gordo CUSD #100 (‘the District’), in collaboration with the Cerro Gordo Education Association, has developed a Remote Learning Day Plan. This Remote Learning Day Plan must address the following five areas:
A) Accessibility of the remote instruction to all students enrolled in the school or district.
B) When applicable, a requirement that the Remote Learning Days activities reflect the State learning standards.
C) Means for students to confer with an educator, as necessary.
D) The unique needs of students in special populations, including, but not limited, students eligible for special education under Article 14 of the Code, students who are English learners, as defined by Section 14C-2 of the Code, students experiencing homelessness under the Education for Homeless Children Act [105 ILCS 45], or other vulnerable student populations.
E) Transitions from remote learning to on-site learning upon the State Superintendent's declaration that Remote Learning Days are no longer deemed necessary.
The District has taken or will take the following actions to ensure compliance with the provisions set forth within Executive Order 2020-15:
The parents/guardians of all students within the District have been informed of the development of the District’s Remote Learning Day Plan. Digital and non-digital learning opportunities will be provided to all students based on the needs of the individual student.
Lessons will be developed and implemented based on the State learning standards.
All Licensed Staff will be available via email during one of two time slots (9:00-11:00 AM or 1:00-3:00 PM) on a daily basis when on-site attendance was originally scheduled. The time slot each staff member chooses will be clearly communicated to the students within the District.
The District will serve the needs of all students during this time of Remote Learning. This includes the Special Education population, English Language Learner population, Homeless population and those students within other vulnerable populations.
Additional details of the transition back to on-site learning will be available when the duration of Remote Learning Days is known. At minimum, a systematic review of the concepts presented and those that were not will be documented and noted. This review of concepts will include academic, social and emotional needs of the students of Cerro Gordo.
As Remote Learning continues, the District will monitor the success of our Remote Learning Day Plan. The District reserves the right to modify this plan at any time. Those modifications will be communicated to all stakeholders within the community as they become available.
