What is an eLearning Day?

On eLearning Days, students and teachers do not report to school, but will complete classroom activities using technology. eLearning days are used for temporary, unforeseen school closures, like inclement weather or school building power outages. 

How and when will students and parents know if an eLearning Day will take place?

We will communicate school cancellations and the announcement of an eLearning Day through phone calls, district/school websites, social media (Facebook and Twitter), and local media. We will communicate cancellations as soon as it is reasonable to do so.

How will students be informed about assignments during an eLearning Day?

Teachers will post assignments to the student's learning platform (SeeSaw, Google Classroom, or Canvas) by 9 AM on an eLearning Day. Students can access their learning platforms directly or through Clever

How will students get help on their assignments on an eLearning Day?

Teachers will be available through the learning platform, email and/or school voicemail (when listed) which will be posted on their class website.

How much school work will students be required to accomplish?

We will not overload our students with busy work but will provide meaningful learning activities related to their current unit of study. Assignments should take a reasonable amount of time to complete when on task.

When will assignments be due?

As students complete their work, they should upload their assignments if Wi-Fi is available. If an Internet connection is not available, they will have up to three school days after the last school cancellation to turn in assigned work.

How will attendance and grading work?

All students will initially be counted as present on the eLearning Day. However, if the assigned work is not completed and submitted within the 3-day grace period, the student must be coded as absent on the day that school was cancelled. Since their assignments are just like any others, failure to do their work will be graded in accordance with the teacher’s grading policy.

Do students with identified special learning needs have an alternative means to access their education on eLearning Days?

Yes, individualized supports, services and accommodations appropriate for the eLearning environment are provided as needed for students with disabilities and English Learners. These supports may vary based on the needs of the individual student. 

Will my student have an opportunity to learn more about how an eLearning Day works?

Yes, our schools will schedule a Mock eLearning Day where students will come to school, and teachers will show students how to retrieve and complete their digital lessons just like they will do during a real eLearning Day.

What about my child in grades 2nd-5th that does not have a device at home?

In some instances, 2nd through 5th grade students may be given devices to take home for eLearning. However, if devices are not sent home, activities will be sent home with students and/or posted to the student's learning platform to complete. Students will be able to submit these assignments through the 3-day grace period. 

What about my child in PK-1st Grade?

Students in these grades do not have individually assigned devices. When an eLearning Day looks likely, activities will be sent home. In any case, assignments will be posted to SeeSaw, and students will have through the 3-day grace period to complete them.
