Greetings Senior Parents, As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to send out one more reminder about the FAFSA. Back in October I had a financial aid night, so we wanted to follow up with that. Many of you have already filled out the FAFSA form, which is great, but I wanted to make sure everyone is doing that since this is a graduation requirement per the State of Illinois. If your senior student is going to college then you should for sure fill this form out. However, there is a way you can opt out of this requirement. If you are not interested in filling out the FAFSA form please send me an email so I can get you the opt out form. knaggsk@delavanschools.com Thanks for your time and happy spring! Mr. Knaggs

The Delavan CUSD 703 Board of Education is conducting a search for a new superintendent to begin on July 1st, 2022. The selection of a new superintendent is probably the most important decision a board of education has to make; therefore, the Board has hired the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB) to assist in this process. The Board of Education is seeking everyone’s input in the search process. The Board requests that all staff, all parents and community members complete an online survey provided by the IASB. The results will be tallied and used by the Board and Screening Team to develop a brochure to advertise the position. The survey can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W5RSQP8 The survey deadline is: March 10, 2022 at 11:45 p.m. Thank you for taking time to complete the survey.

First of all, apologies for the late notification. The Board of Education met tonight for the past hour and a half and listened to public comment, reviewed the survey results, and discussed options regarding the masking policy. The Board of Education has approved a mask-recommended policy beginning tomorrow for the district. Students will still need to wear a mask when riding the bus per CDC guidelines. The updated plan will be emailed out to the parent list in the morning. Thank you for the support you have shown for the district over the past two years.

The Delavan Board of Education is aware that Friday evening a court in Sangamon County ordered the removal of the mask mandate and exclusion of close contacts in roughly 140 school districts across the State. The Delavan school board is reviewing the ruling and will be following the appeal as it moves forward. We currently plan to keep our procedures in place and will provide an update after we meet to discuss the ruling at a special meeting this week. The health and safety of our students and staff continues to remain of the utmost importance in our decisions.

Alerts by Apptegy Beginning in July 2021, we began using Alerts, which allow us to send out voice calls, text-to-voice calls, texts, emails and push notifications to our app users. Parents/Guardians do not need to do anything to sign up for these alerts, since your contact information is being pulled directly through our Student Information System. Messages may be sent using the following methods: Phone Call (Parents/guardians of students in the district) Email (Parents/guardians of students in the district) SMS Text (Parents/guardians of students in the district) App Push Notifications (Families/community members can download our app for Android phones or iPhones) However, not all alerts will involve ALL of those components; it is determined by the person sending the alert. We will continue to send messages using voice, e-mail AND SMS text to alert our parents and staff during inclement weather. Parents & Guardians, please make sure that your phone and email information is up-to-date. If you change a phone number or email address, please update that immediately by calling the District Office.
