On school days in which safe travel is not possible due to severe weather concerns or other emergencies, students will complete assigned learning experiences at home. Student attendance will be based on digital check-in procedures. Coursework will be communicated through Canvas. Ultimately, the goal is to provide students with learning experiences that challenge them to think critically, connect to prior knowledge, and serve as a bridge to future learning.
The eLearning day shall occur on the day of an emergency day. This will allow the District to maintain a true end to the school year while ensuring that educational time is compensated for with fidelity.
The procedure for an eLearning day will be to notify parents and students that assignments will be posted by no later than 9:00 a.m. This will allow parents, students, and educators to make eLearning plans that advance their learning experiences.
Students will be required to “check in” to each course via a Google Form prior to 10 am the day of the Remote Learning Day. *
Teachers will communicate the required coursework through Canvas, the District 234 Learning Management System, by 9 am on the morning of the Remote Learning Day*
*In the event that the severe weather is associated with loss of power/internet access, these expectations will be altered accordingly. In the event that the severe weather is associated with widespread loss of power/internet access for a large portion of the District attendance areas, an eLearning Day will NOT occur; instead, the day will be a traditional “snow/emergency” day and be made up at the end of the school year.
