Parents and students in Evanston-Skokie School District 65 will find out Wednesday how the fall semester, and perhaps the entire school year, will operate.

The School Board has scheduled a special virtual meeting at 8 a.m. Wednesday  District spokesperson Melissa Messinger tells Evanston Now that the administration will present its reopening plan then.

Results of a both a parent and teacher survey on the upcoming year will also be discussed.

Evanston Township High School officials last week said the high school will open will all remote learning, which will continue indefinitely until coronavirus conditions allow a return to the classroom.

That was a reversal of an earlier position, in which the ETHS Board had okayed a hybrid plan with both in-person and online learning.

ETHS teachers strongly objected to the in-person portion, fearing many educators could come down with COViD-19, or spread the virus to family members.

Jeff Hirsh joined the Evanston Now reporting team in 2020 after a 40-year award-winning career as a broadcast journalist in Cincinnati, Ohio.
