Technology Platforms for Video Conferencing

The U.S. Department of Education and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) encourage the use of technology platforms to provide remote learning and educational services during the COVID-19 pandemic.  ISBE recommends synchronous instruction and services. To satisfy these recommendations, the District is using several tools, including the Zoom platform and the Google Meet platform.  The District will utilize these video conference platforms in ways that best protect the safety and privacy of students, teachers, and administrators. The District will utilize meeting security controls and students will access remote services through the District’s Zoom and Google accounts only, through meeting links distributed by teachers and other District educational service providers.  

You can access the Zoom student privacy policy here: https://www.zoom.us/docs/en-us/childrens-privacy.html.

Superintendent Letter to Parents/Guardians


    • We believe that the chief purpose of the school is the all-around development of each child as an individual and as a citizen.
    • We believe that it is our duty as teachers to train pupils, that they may learn to live together peaceably, cooperatively, and efficiently as intelligent individuals in an increasingly changing world.
    • We believe in a democratically operated school system at all levels. Pupils will learn the democratic way only as they have a chance to share it.
    • We believe that the school should help develop in its pupils a strong sense of sound American patriotism together with a full understanding of the liberties and responsibilities which come under citizenship.
    • We believe that community understanding, interest, and cooperation are necessary for the continuing success of any desirable school program.
    • We believe that good classroom order and a healthy, cooperative working atmosphere are essential to the effective conduct of any class.
