Illinois Remote Learning Days started on Tuesday throughout the state and they will continue until in-person instruction can resume. During this indefinite amount of time schools around the state have the option of implementing an E-Learning Plan or a Remote Learning Day Plan that will provide the students throughout the state instruction and access to educators through any device. Schools can also use a maximum of five Remote Planning Learning days at any given time to be able to work on Remote Learning Day Plans in conjunction with their collective bargaining units. Remote Learning Days that are used by schools around the state will count as regular attendance for students around the state. Every one of the days that a school uses during this time will go towards the minimum length of the school year and they also don’t need to be made up. Remote Learning Opportunities provide overarching practices for important matters such as grading assignments, communication, and emotional and social needs among other things.
