• Governor Pritzker has closed all schools in Illinois for in person instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The following remote learning plan will be utilized through the rest of the school year.

    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.

    Our e-Learning plan was previously approved by the Lake County Regional Office of Education

    Given this new Executive order, and with the State’s issuance of Emergency Rules on Remote Learning, NSSED is adopting our e-Learning Plan as our Remote Learning Plan.  Please note that the Remote Learning Plan may be amended by the district Superintendent as we learn together how to work in these unprecedented times.

    On Tuesday June 23, the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Department of Public Health released joint guidance for schools on the 2020-21 school year. This 60-page document is a step toward answering critical questions about what the 2020-21 school year will look like. 

    Where Our Plan Applies 

    Families or staff members whose programs or services are located in a member district, please refer to that district for information about remote learning. For your reference, we are providing links to remote learning information from all of our member districts.

    The NSSED plan determines practices at the following locations:

    • North Shore Academy 
    • North Shore Academy - Elementary
    • Little Adventurers Preschool at Winnetka Covenant Church
    • Arbor Academy and PAES Lab
