e-Learning Information for Students Grades 5 – 12

e-Learning days for ISD 518 students in grades 5 – 12 will utilize district devices (iPads) and internet access if available to students. Students will access their assignments using the digital platform they use on normal school days, Schoology. On the morning of the e-Learning day, teachers will post assignments for their classes that continue the lessons that were taking place in their classrooms. Students are expected to complete the assignments during the course of the e-Learning day.

Assignments for the e-Learning day will be posted on Schoology by 9:00 a.m. for students to access and complete. These assignments will reflect the current course topic and will be similar to the lesson that would normally have taken place that day. This method of assignment for course work is familiar to students. Digital methods to access school work and turning in digital copies is something that takes place on normal ISD 518 school days across the 5 – 12 grade levels.

If a student does not have access to the internet at home, they will need to make arrangements with their teacher(s) to prepare for possible e-Learning days. Preparations such as downloading material the day before an e-Learning day may occur are available to students who do not have internet access at home. If arrangements are made between students and teachers, students will be allowed to turn in their work once school has resumed and the student is able to acquire internet access again. Phone calls will allow students without internet access to contact their teachers during normal school hours.

Teachers will be available for contact via email or over the phone during normal school hours, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Students or families should feel free to contact their student’s teacher(s) during this time frame with any questions about the e-Learning day assignments and requirements.

If you have additional questions or concerns relating to e-Learning day policies and procedures, please contact your student’s building administration.
