Goal #7 Individuals are ultimately responsible for investing in their own growth and potential. • 90% of currently enrolled students entering grades K, 3, 6, & 9 will participate in grade level or school orientation programs. The Pikeland Board of Education has been actively establishing goals for the 2021-2022 school year. As the school year settles in, a complete list of the goals will be presented with updates on the district’s website. Pittsfield High School is leading the way with Goal #7. The high school began working on Goal #7 in June of 2021 with many planning sessions over the summer. During the months of July and August, high school teachers and administrators began to make the goal a reality. Over a period of 4 days, the high school staff connected with 97 of the 106 members of the Class of 2025. This outstanding work meets and exceeds the targeted goal with 92% of the 9th grade class participating in a grade level orientation program. Nice work PHS!

Dear Pikeland families and caregivers, This past week has been a whirlwind. As most of you know CDC, IDPH and ISBE released guidance to schools on July 9, 2021. Administrators and board members have spent this past week gathering as much information and clarity as possible. Many of you wait patiently for this information to move in a direction allowing you to prepare emotionally and logistically for the 2021-2022 school year. The Pikeland School Board members have been reviewing the proposed Return to Learn Plan and will gather on July 21st to collectively bring their individual thoughts to one place for open discussion. As the group discusses plans for the next year there are a couple of things to consider: Pacing a decision demonstrates wisdom and reflection on behalf of the board members and administrators. The past 18 months have been an ever-changing environment and additional changes may roll out next week. Everyone should prepare for changes to roll-out even after a decision has been made. Schools with smaller populations may be able to announce sooner because the variables in their setting are fewer. Each school day Pikeland brings about 1400 people to the same location for extended periods of time (8 hours+). This is a unique responsibility for the school district. The Pikeland Board of Education will not make a final decision on the re-opening plan during the July 21st board meeting. It is anticipated the board will schedule a special meeting during the week of July 26th to vote on a final plan. As you stay connected with the school district during the coming days, please keep a couple of things in mind as you prepare to use the information in your own homes and world. The plan will be written and deployed to take into consideration about 1200 students and 250 employees. The plan will most likely not be perfect for everyone or anyone. Regardless of your position on the pandemic, the exit plan taking the school setting back to a sense of normalcy could be a significant challenge. It is important to model for students the respect needed to move through these types of issues. Sincerely, Dr. Carol L. Kilver
