Illinois Now Has Fewer Remote Learners Than In-Person

CHICAGO (AP) – There are now fewer fully remote learners than in-person learners in the state of Illinois.

But as more schools look at opening up with more capacity, most of the state’s students are still in some form of hybrid learning.

For the past year, most of the state’s 1.9 million students were fully remote because of COVID-19. The most recent report from the Illinois State Board of Education shows that number has mostly shifted to hybrid teaching to the tune of more than 1.3 million.

There are 350,000 students fully in person and fewer than 215,000 fully remote.
