E-Learning

In the case of a weather-related or emergency closing, students will participate in an E-Learning Day. Please read the plan below for information on these days. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to any of your student’s teachers.

Why E-Learning Days?

"E-learning day" means a school day where a school offers full access to online instruction provided by students' individual teachers due to inclement weather.  When we have weather-related school cancellations, instructional time is lost and the momentum in classrooms is slowed. While E-Learning Days cannot replace the face-to-face time students have with their teachers, they can provide better continuity when inclement weather inhibits a full day of in-person instruction.

Requirements

E-Learning days are intended to offer full access to online instruction provided by students’ individual teachers and can be counted as full days of instruction when reported to the Minnesota Department of Education. Learning activities are aligned to the work taking place in the classroom and should be a continuation or extension of what the class is currently working on. Requirements of E-Learning Days include: 

  • Due to inclement weather 
  • Consult with teacher representatives to develop a District plan approved by the board 
  • Accessible digital instruction for students with 504 plan
  • Accessible specialized instruction for students with Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
  • Notify parents and students of the plan at the beginning of the school year
  • There will be a two-hour notice prior to normal school start time that students are to follow the E-Learning emergency school closing plan 
  • Access to teachers via email and online during normal school hours.
