District Seeks Input on Return to School

AURORA – In a letter from new superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley, Indian Prairie School District 204 is seeking input from parents on what a possible return to school could look like this August.

Parents and guardians of District 204 students can take a survey and answer questions about how to follow certain guidelines when students return to school next month.

The survey asks the parent or guardian to prioritize scheduling options from four choices:

  • Sending your student to in-person school on certain days of the week (e.g., Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday). On the days your student is not in school, they would be learning at home.
  • Sending your student to in-person school one week and then remote learning at home the next week (e.g., Week A is in -person at school each day, Week B is remote learning at home each day).
  • Sending your student to school five days a week, for either in-person morning or in-person afternoon sessions, Monday through Friday.
  • Having your student participate in remote learning at home full-time every day.

Those who take the survey can also rate the importance of such things as:

  • bus service
  • requirement of face coverings
  • temperature checks
  • self-certification that all individuals are symptom-free
  • limitation of visitors and volunteers on campus
  • reduction of number of students in each class

Dr. Talley said, “We have committees reviewing the information to incorporate the [Illinois State Board of Education] guidelines into our plans for the fall. Committees are reviewing the areas of facility usage/physical distancing, instruction, health services, technology services, support services, social/emotional support, and human resources.”

“It would be helpful if we had your feedback as we continue our planning,” said Dr. Talley.
