Frequently Asked Questions - Planned Synchronous eLearning Day - February 21, 2023
How much time is the student expected to work online during the eLearning Day?
Students should attend their scheduled classes via Zoom. Students in Kindergarten - 4th grade will receive Zoom links from their teachers directly. Students in grades 5th - 12th grade can access their class Zoom link on their Canvas Page. Planned eLearning assignments are not intended to match hour for hour of the typical in-person school day.
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 Synchrnous eLearning days will be calculated at the conclusion of the 5 day work completion window. For a student to be counted “present” on 2/21, students must attend school via Zoom or all work must be completed and submitted by Wednesday, March 1st.
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.
