COVID-19 Learning Models and Resources
We began the 2020-2021 school year with Remote E-Learning. On November 2, we will move forward in two stages to enrich the learning experience of students.
Stage 1 is an Expanded Remote E-Learning models which will run from November 2 through January 26, the end of first semester. In this stage, remote e-learning continues. However, each department will work to strategically bring in students to enrich learning experiences and activities by course and/or by class (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior). The goal is to create manageable person-to-person contact opportunities in smaller student group settings across all areas in a sustainable structure. Doing this will also provide the opportunity to test procedures, protocols, and routines prior to the start of the in-person model.
Stage 2 is an in-person model that begins February 2, 2021 if circumstances are conducive for an in-person return, consisting of 1/3 of the students coming to the building on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and participating in synchronous remote e-learning on Mondays and Fridays.
As West Chicago High School continues to plan for Stage 2, we are offering all families the option of attending in-person learning once a week or remaining in full remote learning for the duration of 2nd semester. In order to plan and prepare for a return to in person learning it is critical that District 94 know which students will report to school on their alphabetically assigned day for in person instruction and which students will remain home and only participate remotely. The links below will provide detailed information and answers to your questions about what in-person learning will look like and what will be expected of students who remain on remote learning. Students who choose to remain in a remote learning model on this survey will NOT have the option to return to in person learning until the beginning of the 4th quarter.
Parents must log into the PowerSchool parent portal to complete the survey on whether your child will return for in-person hybrid learning or remain fully remote. The survey is called "Hybrid Learning Opt In". Please complete by 4 pm on January 15, 2021. Video instructions can be found here. Information on the learning models can be found here.
