E-Learning Day Guidelines | 2019-2020 School Year
Why eLearning Days?
E-Learning Days are intended to provide access to learning on days when there are school cancellations due to inclement weather. While these days cannot replace the face-to-face time students have with their teachers, it can provide continuous learning when school is cancelled. E-Learning Days also eliminates the need for makeup days at the end of the school year, helping families plan summer activities.
Attendance will be based on the completion of the work for e-Learning Days. Students who do not have the necessary resources may make arrangements with the teacher for additional time to complete the work.
Staff will receive training on the implementation and guidelines for e-Learning at the opening day institute.
Parents and guardians will receive information and guidance at our annual open house held in August on how students successfully participate in eLearning.
Teachers will review e-Learning expectations prior to Columbus Day each school year. Teachers will thoroughly review the process of e-Learning so all students can successfully participate during these emergency days.
