Remote learning could be used more often by District 203. The D203 School Board of Education voted in favor of a resolution to make remote learning an option instead of closing schools on election days, during a public health response, or any other day where a school is mandated to be used for a public function. This also addresses safety concerns with polling places set up at schools since the public can easily enter school buildings. The new resolution prevents that and other disruptions to students. The district will now propose the resolution to the Illinois Association of School Boards for approval.
