eLearning

  • Students are not expected to find internet access in public spaces such as libraries or community centers.
  • Internet will be available in some areas with district buses parked throughout the city.
  • Student email (Gmail) and video chat (Hangouts Meet) between teachers and students has been opened for all students. If a teacher chooses to utilize Hangouts during eLearning, the schedules for video chats should follow the school’s daily bell schedule and be limited to 20 minutes per day/per period. Additional video opportunities may be made available.

Grade (K-2) student eLearning guidelines

eLearning will be the primary means of instruction for students who have access to a device and Wi-Fi

  • Students without a device and/or WIFI can utilize take-home packets created by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction from adopted materials
  • Take-home packet materials are aligned to Indiana Academic Standards
  • Take-home packets are supplemental, and should not be used as replacement for eLearning or other core curriculum materials, unless a student lacks the technology requirements for eLearning.
  • Support take-home packets with resources and materials from both the Go-Math and MyView workbook that aligns with your current pacing, as well as other materials approved by building principal.
  • 20 -30 minute reading logs are a valuable tool to send home with all students, during extended closings.

Grade (3-5) student eLearning guidelines

  • Students in grades 3-5 will receive a school-owned device to take home with them. These devices will be “checked out” and returned when in-person classes resume.
  • eLearning will be the primary means of instruction for students who have access to Wi-Fi
  • Print materials will be made available to students who do not have Wi-Fi access
  • 20 -30 minute reading logs are a valuable tool to send home with all students, during extended closings.

Grades and attendance

  • Attendance is based upon student completion of a google form or other polling software for every class every day.
  • Grades during this time are entered as they would be during an in-person class. Teachers should continue to use the same weight scale on assignments and assessments. Teachers should be flexible with assignment due dates.
