During the recently held monthly regular board meeting, Chilton School District Superintendent Sue Kaphingst provided results from an online survey conducted by the district in June which sought family input on how to move forward with learning in the fall, as well as an overview of the district’s “Return to Learning Plan for Fall 2020.”

She said of the 388 responses to the survey, 83 percent indicated they preferred to have in-person instruction rather than virtual learning, but the safety and cleanliness of the facilities was also an area of great concern.

Kaphingst reminded those present that the best place for students to learn is in the classroom, and the district is committed to mitigating the risks of in-person instruction to the greatest extent possible. She said she is hoping to create partnerships with families so parents can work with the school to create the best plan for their children. She also stressed the need for flexibility as plans that are created and modified during the coming weeks may well change again as new information becomes available.
