Schools are in session. But due to COVID-19, the 2020-2021 school year is operating differently. Approaches to teaching and learning are functioning in unique ways. The goal to give students an excellent experience remains, despite different measures.

Education in Racine County is happening in virtual formats, face to face learning, and hybrid models. Whichever methods may be taking place, an educator is supporting your child’s needs.
