The Zionsville School Board of Trustees approved a proposal in favor of electronic learning at the Feb. 24 board meeting.
This proposal states that electronic learning days, or e-days, will be used within the Zionsville school system to make up snow days from this year. The proposal has been sent to the Indiana Department of Education for final approval.
According to the plan submitted by Superintendent Dr. Scott Robison, the e-days will help students catch up on work missed during the 7 full canceled school days and the additional 6 days of morning delays.
“It has never been our aspiration to be an online school district,” Robison said.
He encouraged all parents who are concerned with the electronic learning to get help as soon as possible from teachers.
Below is an example of an electronic learning schedule, as proposed by the Zionsville School Board of Trustees. This is the proposed schedule to complete one make-up day.
MARCH 3- Teachers make content and assignments available to students electronically. Extra computer access in school will be allowed for activity or experience completion and teacher assistance.
MARCH 4-7- Students will complete their assignments at home. Teachers will be available in person at school for students struggling with e-day assignments. Every teacher will tell students when they are available to help with the extra work.
MARCH 10- At the end of the school day on March 10, all assignments are due.
MARCH 11- All teachers will certify the level of student “attendance” for electronic learning make-up day number one.
After March 11, school administrators and teachers will assess the progress made during electronic learning make-up day number one.
