When schools close during inclement weather, SBCSC might announce an eLearning Day. This means that students will not go to school but will receive their lessons online. When an eLearning Day is used, the school day does not have to be made up later in the year.

Why are we having eLearning Days? Three main benefits are: 

  1. Teachers and students can continue with regular lessons without interruption and students will not fall behind schedule for state assessments. 

  2. They take the place of snow make-up days at the end of the school year. This way everybody (parents, students, and teachers) can enjoy their summer holiday at its full length. Additionally, students will have plenty of time for summer camp or other summer learning opportunities.

  3. They provide a hands-on opportunity for students to practice and learn how to make safe, smart, and ethical decisions in the digital world. They also prepare students for future learning and careers through the use of technology integrated lessons.

When/How eLearning Days will occur:

  • In preparation, all schools (K-12) participated in a Practice eLearning Day in November. 

eLearning Days due to inclement weather

  • When inclement weather causes schools to be closed, SBCSC will announce whether that day will be an eLearning Day.

  • The eLearning Day announcement will be shared through:
  • What happens once the implementation of an eLearning Day is announced?
    • Teachers will post that day’s lessons and assignments online by 9:00 am.
    • Teachers will hold virtual office hours during regular school hours and will answer questions through email or their other preferred method of communication.
    • Students have three days to complete and submit their eLearning assignments.
