D161 to test the waters of in-person blended model with return of some students

Flossmoor School District 161 intends to move forward with bringing a limited number of students in its special education programs back into its buildings as early as Oct. 26.

Jackie Janicke, the district’s director of special education, presented a report to the school board and led a conversation about a blended model of instruction for interested families with students, giving a possible start date and a schedule for the change. 

The board first discussed the proposal in late September. The return to schools would be for students in early childhood, pre-kindergarten and K-8 . . .
