• As of today, Barrington 220 plans to remain in Distance Learning mode until at least Friday, October 16. 

    At the Sept. 15 Board of Education meeting, Dr. Harris shared a presentation on the metrics which will be used to determine when large groups of students can return to in-person learning. Based on recommendations from a district committee which consulted with medical and public health professionals, Barrington 220 will use five metrics. Each metric will help determine which of the above four steps the district is currently in. The five metrics include the following:

    In order to determine the district’s current step, all metrics must be met for a minimum of 10 days, following the trends over that period of time. 

    • Example 1: All metrics are in Step 3 for 10 days: the district is in Step 3
    • Example 2: Most metrics are in Step 3 for 10 days, except for one metric in Step 2: the district is in Step 2

    The metrics status will be updated every week on Monday afternoon. You will be able to view the updated metrics by visiting this dedicated webpage. Keep in mind, all families will receive notice well in advance of any shift in steps.
