CHATHAM, Ill. (WCIA) — Ball-Chatham School District officials said they are pushing back their first day of school.
The school district is offering Blended learning with in-person and remote instruction as well as all virtual learning. The district’s board of education voted this week to continue with these models.
In a letter to families, Superintendent Dr. Douglas Wood said they are pushing back the start day to allow staff time for additional training and to offer transition time for families. Now, students will start their remote/virtual activities on August 28 and in-person students will attend school starting August 31.
