Scheduled eLearning Days
Reminders will be sent before each eLearning Day. The Little Warrior Learning Center Preschool and our PACE program will remain open for the entire day. All school offices and the Administration Office will be open.These scheduled dates will be eLearning BASIC Days. Teachers will have set office hours and assignments will be posted in Schoology for students to complete. Teacher office hours will be held from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. where they will be available to answer questions. Outside of that time, they may be in training sessions and unable to respond. On an eLearning BASIC Day, there should be a limited amount of student to teacher virtual engagement. DCSC Online students should look for guidance from their teachers concerning instruction on this date.
Assignments will be due when students return to school the next day. If a child is unable to complete work in this timeframe for any reason, they should reach out to their teacher and complete work as soon as possible when they return in person.
Weather eLearning Days
Weather eLearning Closures are designed for days that fog, ice, snow and/or temperature make it very difficult or impossible to run transportation. (Learn more about how we make a weather closure decision here.) District alerts and/or communications will indicate between BASIC and LIVE instruction during an eLearning closure. Here are the differences between the two types of eLearning Days:
eLearning BASIC Day - These days will provide our students with virtual instruction like we have had on scheduled eLearning Days in the past. Teachers will have set office hours and assignments will be posted in Schoology for students to complete. On an eLearning BASIC Day, there should be a limited amount of student to teacher virtual engagement.
eLearning LIVE Day - These days will provide our students with live person-to-person virtual instruction that follows their normal school day schedule with a high amount of teacher engagement with students. At the secondary level, students will follow their synchronous bell schedule. At the elementary level, homeroom teachers should help guide students on a schedule similar to what they follow when they are in-person.
On eLearning LIVE Days, teachers are not expected to provide direct instruction for the entire duration of their class. They may teach a lesson, give the students some down time and come back to start the next lesson. They may also give students time to complete an assignment and answer any questions that may arise. During class time beyond direct instruction, teachers will remain on call and host office hours. Teachers are not expected to respond to questions outside of their normally scheduled hours.
All learning activities should be posted to Schoology by 9 a.m. on the morning of the eLearning Day. Assignments will be due when students return to school. If a child is unable to complete work in this timeframe for any reason, they should reach out to their teacher and complete work as soon as possible when they return in person.
Students needing Chromebook support from our Technology Department on an eLearning Day may email firstname.lastname@example.org. These email requests will be answered as soon as possible between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. More involved technical issues that require a student to bring their device in for physical support will be conducted by appointment only arranged with DCSC technology personnel.
