Home Learning / E-Learning
Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205
E-Learning Plan Overview
Given the recent evolution of COVID-19 (coronavirus), this E-Learning Plan has been created in an expedited manner as an option for District 205 to utilize in continuing student learning despite any school cancellation. In the future, this plan will be continuously improved with feedback from the learning community.
What is an E-Learning Day?
Home Learning/E-Learning Days are designed to serve as official attendance days of school when the students and teachers stay at home due to emergency situations, yet learning continues as students remotely leverage digital tools and engage in teacher-prepared lessons. The District 205 E-Learning Plan also includes teachers available remotely to assist students by email with their assignments during the hours of the regular school day.
