Back to School

PLEASANT PLAINS, Ill. (WCIA) — The Pleasant Plains school board voted to modify its original plan of reopening with fully remote learning at its meeting Monday night.

Under Phase I of the plan, students would have done remote learning from August 24 through October 2.

During Phase II, families would have the choice between remote or in-person learning. Phase III would be in person learning.

The board voted 6-1 to plan to begin the school year in Phase II with hybrid learning.

District superintendent Matt Runge has warned the plan could potentially change with any state or local decisions.

The school board meeting began at 6:30 p.m. and was streamed on YouTube.
