The Governor, through two Executive Orders (Executive Order 2020-5 and Executive Order 2020-10), has closed all schools in Illinois from March 17-April 7. March 17-March 30 have been designated as "Act of God" Days that will not have to be made up, and classifying the days between March 31-April 7 as remote learning days. The Illinois State Board of Education has published guidance for Illinois schools and school districts around the mandatory closure.
Remote Learning Plan
By Executive Order 2020-15, the Governor empowered the Illinois State Board of Education to make Emergency Rules concerning Remote Learning and give guidance on remote learning. You can access the ISBE Remote Learning Recommendations During COVID-19 Emergency March 27, 2020 Final Draft on the ISBE website.
