If schools are unexpectedly closed due to inclement weather or another reason, the District may choose to enact an E-Learning Day rather than cancel the instructional day.
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 (email, text message, phone call, and posting to district website and social media accounts).
District 65 will ensure that all students have access to five clock hours of instruction or work as required by the Illinois school code for students participating in E-Learning 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.
Educators will utilize our current online learning 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 to connect, share content, access classrooms, participate in discussions, and receive important class information or announcements.
