Home Learning / E-Learning
Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205
E-Learning Plan Overview
D205 will operate on a Home Learning/E-Learning schedule from
March 30-April 3, 2020.
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?
As a reminder, next week March 30-April 3, 2020, Elmhurst Community Unit District 205 will take part in its first Home Learning/E-Learning Week. 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.
In order to successfully support parents in the launch of e-learning as a new process for our District, and to meet the education-related requirements provided by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), the following information is shared for awareness and included in the “Find It Fast” section of the District 205 website.
