Self-Directed Learning Parent Survey
02/06/2019
On Wednesday, January 30th and Thursday, January 31st, District 87 had to close schools due to unsafe weather conditions. Rather than have to make up these days at the end of the school year and lose 2 days of learning, we created Self-Directed Learning days for our students and staff. Please take a moment to provide the District with your feedback. This information will help the District decide if Self-Directed Learning should be used in the future.
