Some things never change -- even in the midst of a pandemic: Plainfield East High School 2020 graduate Amya Miskdeen tosses her cap in the air after receiving her diploma during the PEHS "Drive-Through Graduation" on Saturday, July 18, 2020. All four District 202 high schools held similar ceremonies.

Hello, District 202 Education Partners,

We hope you’re doing well.

Here is this week’s selection of D. 202 news and information:

  • There is still time to complete your 2020 Census, and it is more important than ever. The Census determines Will County’s share of federal funds. Please complete the 2020 Census. It’s very simple!

Households should have received a letter with a personalized, 12-digit Census ID code.

Go to http://my2020census.gov, use that code to sign in, and you’re all set!

Census data help determine our legislative representation in Congress and our share of $675 billion in federal funding.


Thank you in advance for doing your part!

facebook image from facebook A proposal for Plainfield District 202 students to start the 2020-21 school year with remote learning failed by a 3-3 vote at Monday’s regular Board of Education meeting. The proposed “Return ‘20” plan would have allowed students to return to in-person learning for the second quarter this fall if COVID-19 conditions improved. The Board directed administration to bring back another proposal. The Board’s next regular meeting is August 17, 2020 but Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lane Abrell said a special meeting would likely be needed. School is scheduled to start in late August. A special meeting date was not set. Board member Heather Drake, Vice President Rod Westfall and President Kevin Kirberg supported the proposal. Board Secretary Dave Koch, and Board members Bob Smith and Mike Robey voted against it. Board member Joette Doyle was absent because of recent health issues.
