This year has been an experiment to some degree by Illinois schools thanks to a change in the revamped funding formula.
Districts in Illinois have been piloting the digital learning days this year thanks to the revamped funding formula which allows educators to electronically or in advance of school cancellations that has students take on school work outside the classroom.
Dr. Kristen Kendrick-Weikle, Superintendent of Warrensburg-Latham Schools says the law change has been taken advantage of in some areas but they elected to take a wait and see approach.
According to Dr. Kendrick-Weikle, she has some concerns with the idea of how that would be implemented.
Dr. Kendrick-Weikle says she wants to get more information before her and the Board of Education make any decisions going forward.
Additionally, there is the chance the district never actually gets to implement a policy like this. Area superintendents say this could be something Governor JB Pritzker makes a change on in the coming year.
