What is an eLearning Day?
On rare occasions, it may be necessary to close a school(s) due to weather or other emergency situations. An eLearning day may be called when a school or the district must continue instruction when students and staff cannot access buildings and need to stay home. On an eLearning day, instruction will be asynchronous, and students will complete work independently. An eLearning day may be called based on inclement weather or emergency events that affect school buildings.
How will students be informed about assignments during an eLearning Day?
Students in grades K through Grade 12 will have access to digital materials through the learning management platform (Canvas, Seesaw, etc.) and may reach these sites through Launchpad. Students should complete assignments on the day that school is closed.
How can students get help on their assignments on an eLearning Day?
Teachers will maintain “Office Hours'' for two hours during the day in which parents and students may contact the teacher for questions or support. Elementary school teachers will hold district-wide office hours from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
What should I do if I need technology support during an eLearning day?
Internet access will be needed to access learning management platforms, Launchpad, email, etc. For technology support, please contact the Technology Help Desk at 803-324-TECH (8324). Note: The physical technology office may not be open on an eLearning day due to hazardous travel conditions.
How does attendance and grading work for the eLearning Day?
All students will initially be counted present on the eLearning day and will have 5-school days to complete work. However, if the assigned work is not completed and submitted within the 5-day grace period (or as outlined in IEP/504), the student must be coded as absent on the day that school was cancelled.
