New New FAQ on eSchool for 2020-21 1st Trimester

This is the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for District 70's new eSchool that began Aug. 24, 2020, for kindergarten through eighth grade. Development of the program already has started and academic teams will work the rest of the summer to design a remote program that will exceed state requirements, provide an experience for our students that closely approximates in-person learning, and which reflects the innovative spirit that District 70 has built its reputation upon.  D70 is up for this challenge. 

Due to the changing landscape of the pandemic, this FAQ will be regularly updated, so you are encouraged to frequently visit this site as the D70 Task Force and Parent Advisory Committee continue its important work in planning for the fall.  The FAQ is a developing document.
