Marklund Day Schools welcome students for in-person learning
Thursday, Aug. 27, was the first day of in-person school for students at the new Foglia Education Center at Marklund Day School in Geneva.
Marklund operates day schools in Geneva, Elgin and Bloomingdale for students, ages 3 to 21 with multiple complex medical issues and developmental disabilities as well as those on the autism spectrum.
Marklund is beginning the 2020-21 school year operating from a hybrid learning plan that includes both in-person and remote learning days for students within both the life skills and multi-needs programs.
"The Marklund Day School leadership team spent the majority of the summer reviewing the guidelines and establishing plans to meet the guidelines but also keeping in mind the unique population we serve," said Paula Bodzioch, director of education at Marklund. "Our team created six unique plans to ensure that we meet the needs of all of our day school locations and programs. While our team is implementing a hybrid learning schedule that includes in-person instruction at each of our locations, we are also prepared to switch to a full remote learning schedule, if that is needed."
