Adapted In Person

District 34 will move to Adapted In Person on Wednesday, April 7.

What is Adapted In Person?

An environment in which a majority of students attend school in person daily with recommended safety measures. Online options are available for those who need them.

Timeline

March 5 Open selection for parents to choose In Person or GOAL (remote) in PowerSchool.

April 5-6 Staff Planning Days: No Student Attendance - No Asynchronous Learning

April 7 (Late Start) First Day of Adapted In Person, kickoff of District-wide “SELebration

The District will be using planning days on April 5-6. Five planning days were provided to every school district in the state by the Illinois State Board of Education to prepare for changes in schedules and environments during the pandemic. Those days do not have to be made up at the end of the year.

The transition to trimester 3 will happen as scheduled on Monday, March 8 (so, your T3 selection will take effect on that day). Then, your selection of In Person or GOAL for Adapted In Person will take effect on April 7.

March 5-11: Selection In PowerSchool

Starting on Friday, March 5, PowerSchool will open for every parent to select either "In Person" or "GOAL." That selection will take effect starting on April 7, and will remain in effect for the rest of the school year. If you do not make a selection, current Hybrid students will move to Adapted In Person; GOAL students will remain in their GOAL classroom/remote environment.

Regardless of your selection for Trimester 3, you can choose either In Person or GOAL for the remainder of the school year during this selection period.

Attendance

Illinois state law requires that the taking of attendance (including entering absences and tardies as well as contacting parents of students who have not been reported as absent). During GOAL and Adapted In Person, all classroom/homeroom teachers will take attendance everyday.

Parents should call their school attendance line if their child will not be participating in class for the day. 

Zoom Guidelines for GOAL

Zoom will be used in our GOAL and Adaptive Pause environments for virtual class meetings and for one-on-one conversations between teachers and students. If parents or guardians do not wish for their child to have one-on-one Zoom sessions, they can opt out by sending an email to their child’s teacher(s), building principal and Executive Director of Technology Brian Engle (bengle@glenview34.org) with the subject “Zoom One-on-One Opt Out.”

Parents, guardians and other adults who help students connect to their classrooms and facilitate remote learning are serving a specific and valuable role in helping educate our students. We value the partnership required in this environment. In order to protect privacy and allow teachers and students to create safe, trusting and productive classroom communities, adults should not be visible on screen during real-time Zoom sessions unless a student requires adult assistance due to an already documented disability.

Tech Support

If you or your child needs tech support, please contact your school's Innovative Instruction Specialist:
