Superintendent's Corner

Dr. Shelly Davis-Jones

REVISED-April 1, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Governor J.B. Pritzker has extended the Stay-at-Home Order and school closure until April 30, 2020. 

The Illinois State Board of Education has given school superintendents full autonomy to provide continuous learning opportunities for students during this mandated closure, including through the use of technology and paper pencil assignment will be mailed to all students. Therefore, Dolton School District 149 will implement a Remote Learning Plan crafted collaboratively by school administrators and faculty.

In its most recent guidance, the Illinois State Board of Education indicated grading for 4th quarter may be defined with lots of flexibility during this COVID-19 related school closure. However, Dolton School District 149 teachers will monitor students' progress and assessing students' performance and ensure grading is meaningful and purposeful.

Students will receive feedback from teachers and receive grades for their assignments. This will give teachers the flexibility to monitor student completion and performance on assignments, while also providing students and their parents/guardians with feedback on students' progress.

Our overall goal is to keep student’s minds actively engaged with school and to connect with teachers. Please be patient with us as we are embarking upon this new way to work with parents and students at home.


During the time schools are closed, teachers will provide educational opportunities students can do at home. Principals and teachers will provide information directly to students/families. Specific Remote Learning/E-Learning plans will vary based on grade level, however, here are district-wide details:
