As we prepare for next school year, we are asking families to reflect on the unprecedented challenges that we have faced together. In addition to the ongoing public health crisis, our nation is confronted with the loss of Black lives due to racial injustice and the resulting civil unrest. Recent events have made the inequities that our high-need families experience all too evident and it calls for the district to redouble our efforts to support families who need us most.
That is why we’ve partnered with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Lurie Children's Hospital to conduct a family survey that will help us understand the physical, mental, and emotional impact of COVID-19.
Your voice is so important during this time. As our district plans for the resumption of school in the fall, your perspective on the current state of our city and schooling will help influence our policies and decisions.
