  • For information about Educere, visit their website at https://www.educere.net/ or view attached information sheets from Educere
  • Individual Education Plan (IEP) students are strongly encouraged to attend in-person learning as meeting the needs of IEP’s is best served in the classroom with our regular and special education teachers. If you have a student with an IEP, you must contact the appropriate Principal above.
  • This will allow you to keep your child home and still remain enrolled at Heritage.
  • Heritage administration and counselor will stay in regular contact with remote learning students to monitor progress and to provide support
  • For Junior High and High School, a remote learning student is allowed to be in extracurricular activities, sports, clubs etc. provided eligibility is maintained under same school policy for all students per IHSA, IESA
  • Instruction and learning activities will be provided online by Educere and will need parent support to complete. Parents must have Internet connection and technology in home to support their decision.
  • All grades and progress will be automatically reported back to the school
  • Students will have access to Educere teachers from 6:30am-6:30pm daily for questions and support
  • If you choose the virtual learning option, your child will be expected to continue with virtual learning for the 1st semester ending at Holiday Break in December as the cost per student is fully paid by the district and constitutes a semester commitment to the program
  • You will have the opportunity to choose in-person learning for the 2nd semester if your situation changes or conditions warrant full return to in person learning in schools
