IBSE, IDPH Release Guidelines for In-Class Summer Courses

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Board of Education (IBSE) and Department of Public Health have issued guidelines for limited in-classroom instruction this summer.

Extensive social distancing, enhanced sanitation measures and other accommodations will be necessary, including limiting gatherings of 10 or less people, and the use of personal protective equipment.

Jackie Matthews, director of communications for the IBSE, said decisions regarding whether to conduct allowable activities during the reopening will remain at the discretion of local school authorities in consultation with local health departments.

Some of the activities allowed during the “Phase 3” reopening of schools are behind-the-wheel instruction, summer camps, summer meal distribution and school registration.
