First the teachers strike, now the coronavirus: CPS shuts down for 2nd time this school year as fall walkout now looks like ‘dry run’ for new disruption

Each Illinois school district is expected to handle the closure differently, with some ceasing educational instruction until the order is lifted and others providing lessons online. Prior to Pritzker’s announcement, more than 75 school districts had notified the Illinois State Board of Education that they intended to implement e-learning that allows children to study at home via the internet. CPS does not have a structured e-learning program, but teachers have been working over the weekend to prepare learning materials for students that will not be graded.
