How will my child(ren) be graded for assignments he or she completes? 
Due to the current length of school closure, Oak Park Schools is not establishing a requirement for any virtual learning opportunities to be graded. At no point, do we want to negatively impact a student due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  However, we have recommended that teachers keep track of work submitted/not submitted by the students. For those students who take advantage of this opportunity and complete all or most of the work, we will work together to provide incentives or positive recognition for those students.

During the COVID-19 school closure, please support us by working with your child(ren) to access and complete learning opportunities on a daily basis.
