eLearning & Remote Learning Days FAQ for Parents

What’s the difference between eLearning
(synchronous) and a Remote Learning Day (asynchronous)?
On an eLearning  day, students participate in classes with their teachers at their
regular times during the school day. Attendance is taken in real-time, and
assignments are expected to be completed prior to the next school day. Teachers
will work with students or families struggling with Internet access during a virtual
school day.
On a Remote Learning Day, materials/assignments for all classes are posted in
Google Classroom in the morning, and students are expected to complete the
assignments on their own time throughout the day. Teachers will check in with
students regularly throughout contract time to answer questions. Students will
have five school days to submit completed assignments.  
How is my child’s attendance counted? 
eLearning day  Attendance is counted in real-time. Attendance will be taken
each period for students in grades 6-12 and for each scheduled online session in
grades Pre-K-5. 
Remote Learning Day - Students who submit their eLearning assignments
within five school days will be counted as present for the eLearning day.  
How will my child access their materials on a Remote Learning Day?
Lessons and all necessary instructions will be posted to Google Classroom by
9:00 a.m. on the day of an announced Remote Learning Day. Each student has a
district-issued Google Classroom account to access materials and assignments.  
Do the assignments have to be turned in electronically?
No.  Although assignments must be posted electronically in Google Classroom,
the final product does not need to be submitted electronically (i.e.,  making a list,
drawings, written responses).
How can my child’s teacher be contacted on an eLearning Day? 
Staff members are expected to be available to students and parents for
questions between 9:00 a.m. – the end of the regular school day. Teachers can
be reached via email.  
What if my child does not have Internet access during a remote learning
We understand that not all students have access to a device and/or the internet
during the day due to individual situations, such as loss of internet due to
inclement weather, child day care, multiple students at home with a single
computer, parent availability during the work day, no Internet provider at home,
etc.  Because of this, students will have five school days to complete and turn in
any assigned Remote Learning Day assignments.
What kinds of activities will my child be doing on a Remote Learning Day?
The expectation from the IDOE is that instruction will continue in the same
progression as it would on a regular school day. 
Who do I contact if I need help during a Remote Learning Day?
Your child’s teacher(s) will be your direct contact for any questions regarding
assignments, instruction, or technical support. 
How can I prepare my child to be successful on a Remote Learning Day?
Classes are already utilizing Google Classroom as part of their regular
instruction.  We also encourage parents to go through the process with their
students at home, so they know how to get support and access materials on a
Remote Learning Day. For younger students, we suggest families keep login
information (Chromebook/Lab username and password) at home and practice
accessing your teacher’s Google Classroom well in advance of a Remote
Learning Day.
My student logged in but still can’t access their Google Classrooms.  What
should I do?
If this occurs and you are using Google Chrome, be sure you are completely
logged out of any personal accounts.  If your student is not using their
Chromebook, there should be an icon next to the  icons in the upper
right-hand corner of your browser.  By clicking the profile icon, you should be
able to log out of any personal accounts that may be signed in.  Then have your
student log in again.
