We are excited to announce that our next school year will begin Thursday, August 19, 2021. Incoming Kindergarten and high school Freshman will partake in an orientation experience on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. Our next school year includes the holidays and breaks our community is accustomed to including winter and spring breaks. We are deeply thankful for the collaborative work that included Acero leadership and educators to arrive at our new calendar.
As you may already know, on May 19 the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) voted to require in-person learning for all scholars next year. We look forward to welcoming all scholars back to school buildings. Parents and caregivers should anticipate purchasing school uniforms and supplies in preparation for in-person learning.
We understand that you may have questions about what our transition from hybrid back to school buildings will look like. Acero Schools will keep you informed in the coming weeks and months of additional developments and agreements arrived with the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU).
In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your respective school or the Acero Support Office at 312.637.3900.
