Special School Board Meeting Nov. 2
District 70

The Board of Education will hold a special in-person meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 2 at Butterfield School.  

Due to being in Phase 4 of Restore Illinois during COVID-19, attendance will be limited to a total of 50 people. With board members, staff, and video personnel, there will be room for about 25 additional community members to attend in person. 

The District 70 school board values public participation. Community members and staff will also be able to participate remotely in the live meeting on Nov. 2, 2020, by:

  • Sending an email to publiccomment@d70schools.org.  Emails received by 4 p.m. on Nov. 2 to this address, which meet the requirements of Board Policy 2:230, will be read at the meeting; 
  • Sending a voice message to (847) 461-9418.  Messages received by 4 p.m. on Nov. 2, which meet the respect and civility requirement of Board Policy 2:230, may be played at the meeting. However, due to the space limitations of District 70’s current phone system, voice messages will have a maximum of three (3) minutes allowed.

Based on the number of written comments and voice messages received, to preserve time for the School Board to conduct all of its business, the Board President may summarize the comments or may read only such portions of the comments aloud as time permits, then make the written comments available on the District’s website after the meeting. 

Also, please note:

D70's Proposed e-Learning Plan for Snow Days
District 70

District 70 has created an e-Learning Plan to replace Emergency Days through the next three school years, 2020-2023.  

The plan would allow District 70 to use e-Learning days, instead of Emergency Days (such as Snow Days), so that students can continue to learn remotely.

The state mandates that five emergency days are built into the school calendar to accommodate emergency school closures due to inclement weather or other events beyond our control (flooding, school power outages, etc.).  The emergency days are built into the school calendar at the end of every school year.

The e-Learning Plan, approved by the school board on Oct. 26 and pending approval before the Regional Office of education, will allow students to learn remotely when school has to be closed and also will allow the school year to end on a set date without being extended to accommodate the built-in emergency days.
