The Superintendent or designee will evaluate the specific situation that may require the use of an emergency day and make the decision to use the emergency day with considerations for health and safety.
The announcement of an e-Learning day will be made as soon as possible but no later than 5:00 am on the morning of the emergency. The announcement will be made through the standard modes of communication used by the school district (district email, District website, Facebook, and Twitter).
District 65 will ensure that all students have access to 5 clock hours of instruction or work as required by the Illinois school code for students participating in eLearning days. The instruction will be a combination of synchronous and asynchronous work that is designed and appropriate based on the age/grade level of the student.
Teachers will utilize our current online platforms to deliver instruction, directions, and assignments (Seesaw, Google Classroom) These provide a secure learning network for teachers, students, and schools. It provides a safe way for us to connect, share content, access classrooms, participate in discussions, and receive important class information or announcements.
