Illinois State Board of Education news
The unanimous vote by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules represented one of the few times that Illinois lawmakers have pushed back against the enforcement of Gov. JB Pritzker’s executive orders since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic
Parkview Christian Academy in Yorkville has filed paperwork in Kendall County seeking a temporary restraining order against the Illinois State Board of Education over Gov. JB Pritzker's statewide mask mandate.
Not all superintendents who spoke Wednesday opposed the mask mandate or ISBE’s enforcement of it. Sheri Smith, superintendent of the Forrestville Valley School District in northwest Illinois, argued that putting districts on probation might be too lenient.
The Illinois State Board of Education updated its mask guidance on Monday morning to reflect updated CDC mask guidance
At Yorkville, lack of state pandemic guidelines has an impact on staff, resources and logistics, Superintendent Tim Shimp remarked, from daily health screenings to limiting class sizes.
