eLearning Day Guidelines | 2019-2020 School Year
Why eLearning Days?
eLearning 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. eLearning Days also eliminates the need for makeup days at the end of the school year, helping families plan summer activities.
- Cancellations will be announced via phone, email, district website and social media indicating that there will be an e-Learning Day.
- Teachers, principals, and other licensed professionals will be available by email or phone (via voicemail) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Staff contact information can be found in the ISD 728 Staff Directory.
- Staff will respond to all communication requests in a timely manner during scheduled hours.
Attendance will be based on the completion of the work for eLearning Days. Students who do not have the necessary resources, may make arrangements with the teacher for additional time to complete the work.
eLearning Day Communication
ISD 728 will communicate with you using the following methods when an eLearning Day goes into effect:
6th-12th Grade Guidelines
Our students in grades 6-12 will utilize Schoology in order to access their assignments and expectations on an eLearning Day. Staff will post their course expectations in their Schoology Course by 9 a.m. on an eLearning Day. Students will receive the e-Learning Day activities for each class through Schoology. Course work may include but is not limited to online discussions, quizzes/assessments, online readings, completing assignments using digital resources such as google or other web-based tools. In some cases, student may be directed to complete offline activities such as textbook readings or other assignments.
Early Childhood through 5th Grade Guidelines
Students in grades Early Childhood through 5th Grade will utilize Choice Boards on an eLearning Day. These Choice Boards will be distributed to families in November and can also be viewed and downloaded using the links below or by visiting www.isd728.org/ChoiceBoards.
On an eLearning day students in Early Childhood through 5th Grade will choose 1 activity in each of the subject areas listed. Upon completion, the parent/caregiver and child will sign the Choice Board and return it to school.
