  • School Calendar Update and Enrollment Deadline Reminder

    The Board discussed the District’s upcoming transition to a 100% on-site learning model during a special Board Meeting on February 2, 2021. In order to better prepare for this transition, it was decided that Friday, February 12, 2021, will be a ‘no school’ day for students. Staff will utilize this day to prepare to welcome students back to 100% on-site learning on Monday, February 15, 2021. This includes aligning student services, building staffing plans, equipping buildings with necessary furniture, reviewing new health and safety protocols, and conducting building cleaning. The ‘no school’ day applies to both on-site and online students and will not impact the last day of the school year this June.

  • Learning Model Update (1/29/21)

    On January 29, 2021, a bill was signed by the Governor requiring school districts to provide parents an option to send students to school five days a week. Due to this change in state law, the District will offer a 100% on-site option and a 100% online option (ICCSD PK-12 Online Learning Program). Effective February 15, 2021, the District will no longer offer the hybrid option.
