eLearning Days

Broncho Family,

The Lafayette School Corporation will be piloting a new eLearning Day program starting in the 2019-2020 school year for students in Grades 5-12. Participating schools will include Sunnyside, Tecumseh, Oakland High School, and Jefferson. ELearning programs have been utilized throughout Indiana for nearly a decade, and LSC students are well-equipped to participate given their experience with their individually-issued computers and daily use of them for instruction.

For this pilot year of the program, two (2) eLearning Days have been scheduled on predetermined dates (November 6, 2019 and January 30, 2020). Students will work on their lessons from home and submit their assignments electronically to their teachers. At the school buildings, Technology staff will be just a phone call or email away should technical assistance be needed. Teachers will have set “office hours” which will be advertised to students in advance so that they can be reached by phone or email very quickly for assistance with the lessons. As always, students with IEPs/504 plans and ELL students will have accommodations for their eLearning lessons. Additionally, staff will have the opportunity to participate in professional development on eLearning Days that could include work on, for example, curriculum, school improvement plans, special trainings, and school safety protocols.

To prepare students for our pilot eLearning Days, staff will communicate expectations to students in the days leading up to them. Teachers will be encouraged to develop quality lessons that meet the same academic standards and skills that would be practiced on any other typical day of school. Students will be expected to submit work electronically for every class on the eLearning Day, which will serve as their attendance for the class.

Please note that these eLearning Days are scheduled for November 6, 2019 and January 30, 2020, and only students in Grades 5-12 will be participating. The program will not be utilized in LSC for inclement weather.

More information and details will be provided to students and families as the eLearning dates approach in order to help students and parents plan.

Thank you,

The Lafayette Jefferson High School Administrative Team
