Dist. 203 to discuss online learning program

Success - Article sent! close

Naperville Unit District 203 will continue discussions tonight of a new policy about online and blended learning that would create a remote educational program.

The proposed policy says the new remote educational program will align its curriculum with Illinois State Learning Standards, offer experiences consistent with those given to traditional students at the same level and operate anytime during the regular school term.

Each student participating in the program would have a written remote educational plan and would be required to participate in all assessments the district must give under federal and state law.

District 203 is set to be part of an online and blended learning consortium that also will include Batavia Unit District 101, Indian Prairie Unit District 204, Kaneland Unit District 302 and Wheaton Warrenville Unit District 200. Educators from all five districts are holding meetings to plan specifics of the program, which could start as soon as fall 2014.

District 203 board members are set to discuss the remote educational policy Monday without taking a vote during their meeting at 7 p.m. today at the administrative center, 203 W. Hillside Road.
