The District 97 Board of Education will hold a special meeting Thursday, July 9, to discuss the district’s plans for reopening schools in the fall. The meeting will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. via Zoom. 

During the meeting, Superintendent Carol Kelley and the district’s administrative team will share an update on planning for the 2020-21 school year, including an overview of the feedback gathered from the Fall 2020 planning surveys for families and staff.

There will be an opportunity for public comment via email. However, in order to maximize discussion time, public comments will be read at the end of the board meeting.
