District Proposes Delayed Start to School Year

AURORA – Indian Prairie School District Superintendent Dr. Adrian Talley announced on Wednesday that he will propose a delayed start time to the 2020-2021 school year.

The proposal recommends beginning the school year on September 3 and will be presented to the IPSD 204 Board of Education at the August 3 board meeting.

“This additional time will allow us to create class schedules, ensure we have teachers in the right positions, and work with students to review and revise their courses as necessary,” said Dr. Talley. “We are reviewing the school calendar so there is minimal impact to the last day of classes. A revised school calendar will be presented to our Board of Education on August 10.”

The deadline for students’ Return to School option has been extended through August 3. Parents will choose between the A/B/C schedule or an online academy.

“I want to thank you for sharing your feedback with us over the past few weeks,” said Dr. Talley. “Through various methods including forums with parents groups, phone calls, and emails, we have heard from more than 2,000 parents. It is clear that as a community, we deeply care about children. I appreciate your patience as we revise our plan to provide the best educational experience possible under these challenging times.”
