All Back Model Schedule & Plan
Learning model: In addition to longer class periods (40 minutes) another major change to this learning model is that students at home must log in to their classes through Zoom every period. In many cases this is called simultaneous learning. Students who are fully remote must log in from home to every class every day.
Attendance will be taken every period. The remote experience will look slightly different from teacher to teacher but students are expected to be logged in with cameras on every day, every period!

Classes with Performance Components
West Chicago Community High School is committed to giving students the opportunity to perform both individually and in groups. Performance is an important part of the curriculum in classes such as music and theatre. We will be working hard during the school year to find innovative ways for students to perform in a remote environment. For example, music teachers are currently investigating new apps, websites, and strategies for students to actively work on their musical skills and receive feedback. We recognize that being able to play and perform with their classmates is an integral part of music classes and strive to recreate that as best we can remotely.
All students should be prepared for a very different type of classroom experience. Desks and tables will be distanced apart, group work will be limited or very structured and student seating will remain consistent at all times. In many classes student movement will likely be very limited. While this may limit the type of instruction our students normally experiences the restrictions being put in place are in order to protect everyone.
Grades & Attendance
Students are expected to attend every class every day. Students are responsible for their own grades and and their scores, work completion and quality will dictate their assigned grades.
While students are following the upcoming A/B Hybrid formatted learning calendar, our PE classes will continue to be working to help our students get and stay active. Through the course of this learning model, we will continue to work with students when they are in the building. However, while students are remote or on a day that they are not in school, we will not be using video conference technology to have them join into their PE class. The reasons for this are twofold. First, physical education itself does not lend itself to the use of video conferencing technology during the course of a class. Second, PE is an activity based class. We would like our students up and moving during that time. We want them to be walking, running, moving, and performing activity as much as possible. Our teachers will continue to work to provide new and different ideas for activities for all of our students, whether in person or at home.
SAT for Juniors - April 13, 2021
The SAT exam will be administered to all eligible juniors in the state of Illinois on Tuesday, April 13th, 2021 starting at 7:45 a.m. All juniors will be tested, with the exception of some special education students, who fall into “exception” categories.

What if our child chooses to stay fully remote?
Families and students should make the choice that is best for them in regards to returning for in person learning. Any students choosing to stay fully remote will remain enrolled in the classes they are currently enrolled in. In the All Back Learning Model, remote students will be attending school online from 9:40 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday as teachers will be teaching both in-person and remote students simultaneously.
While all students are expected to return to school, remote learning will remain as an option under specific parameters. Based upon IDPH’s new guidance, remote learning is for students “who are at increased risk of severe illness, who have special health care needs, or who live with people at increased risk”. If these exceptions apply to your student please contact our attendance office at (630) 876-6336 by 2:00 p.m. Friday, March 19th so that we can make the proper documentation for your student.
