E-Learning Day Program
District 218 has adopted an E-Learning Day Program that could be implemented during the current school year if severe or inclement weather occurs. During an e-learning day, students and staff are not required to travel to school in bad weather. Instead, students complete classwork from home electronically, using their district-provided iPads or home computers.
Here is how the e-learning day works:
- Families will be notified through phone calls, emails, and website/social media announcements when an e-learning day will be used.
Teachers will post electronic assignments through Google Classroom or iTunes U by 9:00 am on the e-learning day.
Students should work on the e-learning assignments at home using their iPads.
Students are NOT required to be online during a specific time on an e-learning day.
Teachers will be available via email during normal school hours (8:00 am - 3:15 pm) to answer questions that students or parents/guardians may have about accessing or completing e-learning assignments. Students and parents/guardians can send emails to teachers from the staff directory on the school homepage.
Due to possible technology or internet issues at home (including lack of access due to bad weather), students have up to three school days after school resumes to submit their e-learning assignments.
Students will be marked absent in Skyward if they do not complete their e-learning assignments within three school days.
The E-Learning Day Program is a unique way to keep education moving forward while also keeping our students safe during severe weather days. Thanks for your continued support as we implement new and innovative programs in District 218! Please email or call a school administrator if you have questions about the E-Learning Day Program.
