SASED Guide to 2020-21

Welcome to the SASED Guide to 2020-21

SASED is committed to on-going communication with staff and families to update the status of remote learning plans and any transitions back to in-person instruction.  Please check back often for updates.


Throughout the summer of 2020, SASED worked on plans to support our learning community in a variety of instructional frameworks.  Our leadership team and steering committee created detailed blueprints for the continuation of remote learning, a transition to full-time in person learning, and hybrid learning opportunities.  These plans were created to anticipate and respond to any changes related to DuPage County COVID-19 health metrics.  As an organization, SASED has been striving, and will continue to strive, to bring students back for in-person instruction.  We are committed to doing this safely and mindfully.

SASED services have already begun working in member districts that have students in-person in some capacity.

SASED programs will begin bringing students back for in-person learning experiences in some program classrooms on October 6th.  We will work collaboratively with each host district location on a consistent, rolling basis to work towards returning students to in-person instruction as much as possible.  It is anticipated that across the Cooperative, there will be increasing opportunities to return to buildings and in-person instruction in the coming weeks.  As these additional programs become available, a SASED-wide communication will be distributed.

During the week of October 5th, students in the following SASED program sites will begin to return for some in-person experiences.  See table below for models and start dates for each program site.

 Additional program sites will be added as host district sites return to in-person and plans for those sites are finalized.
