AURORA – Among several agenda items at Monday night’s meeting, the Indian Prairie School District Board of Education will vote on a revised calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.
The submitted calendar has the school year beginning on Thursday, September 3 and tentatively ending on Friday, June 4. In the district’s agenda, administration says “the recommended school calendar allows for a smoother start to the school year, allows for the use of Remote Learning Planning days, and allows for an end of the school year for students to be within the same week as the previously approved calendar.”
The board will also vote on the district’s reopening plan, which calls for schools and learning to begin remotely. The resolution also states that Superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley may modify the plan “to conform to the requirements of, or guidance from, any entity with authority over the District, including, but not limited to, the Governor of Illinois, the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois High School Association and the DuPage County Department of Public Health, and as otherwise appropriate to facilitate the operation of the schools and the safety of students, staff, visitors and other participants in the District’s programs.”
