Topic: Student Learning
As we enter the winter months, Community Consolidated School District 21 would like to update you on some of the factors that contribute to calling an emergency weather day in the event of inclement weather, and when you can expect to be notified. Over the course of the past several years, we have been engaged in collaborative discussions with District 214 as well as our neighboring districts. Together, we are committed to a process that ensures decisions are made wisely and in a timely fashion regarding the safety and well being of our entire school community.
In the event of an emergency weather day where travel is deemed hazardous, it is our intention to have an E-Learning Day in its place. Students will engage in learning from home, virtually, on an inclement weather day to maintain continuity of learning. An E-Learning Day is a full day of learning and, therefore, the emergency day would not need to be made up at the end of the school year. E-Learning Days may only be used when students have the ability to engage in remote learning. Therefore, emergencies such as large-scale power outages would not qualify for an E-Learning Day.
CCSD21 will follow these general guidelines when closing schools for winter-related weather:
As always, the safety and security of our students and staff remains a top priority of CCSD21, our high school district, and our community.
