Public Act 101-0012 of the 101st Illinois General Assembly permits local school districts to establish an e-Learning plan to address student learning in a remote environment. Niles D71 will utilize e-Learning to provide meaningful education to students during emergency days. Since we are a 1:1 District, students already have considerable experience with digital learning. This plan allows our teachers to develop engaging and meaningful lessons that students can complete outside of school while complying with the statutory requirements.
All teachers created plans to continue instruction through our e-Learning program. Daily learning activities for grades K-2 are included in a “Home Learning Kit.” These Kits will be sent home with students. For grades 3-5, these Kits contain a mix of online lessons and paper activities. All of the activities for students in grades 6-8 are posted on the e-Learning page of the District 71 website.
Parents and students may email teachers questions about the assignments at their teacher’s school email address during regular school hours. Some teachers may provide additional opportunities to interact electronically during the school day. While teachers will use different methods to deliver instruction, all assignments will be meaningful and will keep instruction moving forward.
Student attendance will be determined by the student’s completion of the learning activities performed on these days.
