Planned Asynchronous eLearning Day - November 7, 2023
The Board of Education has approved four planned eLearning days in the 2023-2024 school calendar (September 5, 2023 asynchronous, November 7, 2023 asynchronous, and February 20, 2024 synchronous, April 8, 2024 asynchronous ) These days were calendared for the specific purpose of allowing all teachers and staff to participate in training and professional learning. Teachers will not have scheduled student support hours on planned asynchronous eLearning days.
How much time is the student expected to work online during the eLearning Day?
Warren defines eLearning as “extended learning”. Extended learning refers to activities that continue the instruction that is taking place in the classroom; it is not the introduction of new concepts. Students in grades K-6 will be assigned work in Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies and/or Science. Students in grades 7th through 12th grade will be assigned work for each of their assigned class periods.
All assignments and resources for students in grades 1 - 12 will be posted on Canvas by the end of the day on Monday, November 6th for students to access.
Kindergarten students will receive a paper packet of eLearning assignments to take home on Monday, November 6th.
What if students are unable to complete their assignments on eLearning Day?
Students will have five days upon return to school to turn in their assignments. If students need additional support, their teachers will be able to provide that upon their return to school.
How will eLearning be monitored and counted for attendance?
Because we see the use of eLearning Days as part of a student’s normal learning experience, accountability for students will rely on completion and assessment of work. Teachers will assess the student’s work and determine if the student has met the instructional goals for the day. Attendance for Asynchronous eLearning days will be calculated at the conclusion of the 5 day work completion window. For a student to be counted “present” on 11/7, students must complete the work assigned by Tuesday, November 14th.
What if a student does not have access to the internet?
Teachers are aware that not all students have Internet access at home and will provide accommodations when necessary for students without home internet access. Coursework assigned on an eLearning day will not be due until five school days after we return to school. Students without Internet connection have the opportunity to complete work over the following 5 days allowing for students to make arrangements to use the public areas for access.
How can I support my student(s)during an eLearning Day?
Parents and Caregivers can support their students in a variety of ways on eLearning days. There are resources posted below that will aid you in your support of your student.
