Illinois schools now have a backup plan to snow days and other emergency days out of the classroom. Public Act 101-0012 was a new law enacted Friday will allow teachers to utilize online classrooms when they cannot meet in person. A release from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) said school districts found online learning helped curriculum move forward and students stay on track. This will also avoid adding on school days to the end of the year to make up for days classes were cancelled. However, the law still allows district to use two instructional days a year for parent/teacher conferences.
