KCP Students and Parents Upcoming Reopening Town Halls

To give families additional opportunities to learn about and provide input into our reopening plans for elementary and high schools, we are scheduling two virtual parent townhalls — one for elementary and one for high school— in the next two weeks:

  • High School Town Hall: Wednesday, March 10, from 5-6:30 p.m. (Register HERE)

    • Please join us for discussion about how we can safely welcome students back to high school. The district is actively meeting with the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) to establish a plan for the return of high school students and staff. While a return date has not been set and the specific learning model used in high schools remains under discussion, we hope students will be able to return to school as early as mid-April.

    • Opt-In for High School and Academic Center Students: For the first time, families in grades 9-12, as well as students in high school academic centers. We are asking families to tell us their learning preference now so that we can ensure we have the necessary staffing and classroom models in place to safely support all interested high school students.

      • The opt-in window will be available to students in all grades (grades Pre-K through 12) and will remain open for two weeks. Opt-in forms will be sent directly to parents, and this will be the final opportunity to choose in-person learning this school year.
