e-Learning Notice of Public Hearing 08-23-22 5:30
Meeting 08-23-22 5:45
The purpose is to notify all stakeholders about the intended utilization of e-Learning days for the district. E-Learning days will occur when school is called off for inclement weather or other unplanned emergency events that can cancel school. The purpose in doing this is to ensure a
continuation of learning when building cancellations must occur.
On a day that the building/campus must close due to weather or other factors, an e-Learning day occurs and all students will be provided with opportunities to continue learning in all subject areas either via remotely or through pre-planned learning opportunities. The types of lessons and delivery will vary greatly with the variations of subjects and age levels that we serve.
