A Message from the Superintendent

At its December 15 meeting, the Board of Education approved a plan for students to return to hybrid learning in January.  

Please note the following:

  • January 6 will be the final Remote Learning Professional Learning Day

  • January 7-8 will be remote learning days for all students

  • January 11 students will return to school for hybrid learning

  • Bryan and Sandburg Middle Schools will be on an A/B/C schedule due to the demand for in-person learning and the need to preserve six-foot social distancing

For questions, please consult your local schools.

At the December 15 meeting, I shared that as of December 14, the estimated seven-day positivity rate for D205 was 7.7% and that the estimated seven-day cases per 100,000 was 385.5.  The County updates its dashboard each Monday at 3:00 p.m.  District 205 updates its dashboard shortly thereafter.

District Finalizing Arrangements for Permanent Home for Transition Center

Also at the December 15 Board meeting, the Board of Education acted on a resolution declaring its need and interest in acquiring the Abbey property from the Park District.  This is the first step in a conveyance of the property from the Park District to District 205.  The Park District is expected to vote on the issue at its January 11 meeting.  D205 is expecting to acquire the property for the price of $1.6M.

The site will become a permanent home for the District’s Transition Center, which serves students with disabilities between the ages of 19 and 21.  Renovations will begin immediately upon assuming ownership.  Barring any unforeseen complications, the new facility will be open to students in August 2021.

The Abbey is located on St. Charles Avenue adjacent to York High School.
