State Releases Guidelines For Reopening Of Schools
July 1, 2020
Illinois released new guidelines for schools, colleges and universities to return to in-person learning in the fall, but leaders warned those plans could change if health metrics related to the COVID-19 pandemic stop improving.
"This fall will not be business as usual, and we will update our guidance as needed," State Superintendent of Education Carmen Ayala said during a news conference Tuesday, June 23, in Chicago. "In response to challenging and changing public health conditions, schools and districts must be prepared to return to remote learning if the virus surges again."
