eLearning Day Press Release

The Indiana Department of Education has approved Loogootee Schools to utilize Planned eLearning days for the 17-18 school year.  A Planned eLearning day would count as a day of school but it would have to be done on a day in which school is not scheduled.   This eLearning Day has been scheduled for Saturday, February 17.  By participating in the eLearning day through providing evidence of work, a student will earn attendance credit for the school day.  However, students will not physically come to school that day. 

Here is a summary of the process:

  1. All eLearning assignments will be posted on the corporation website at 4:00 pm on Friday, February 16. If paper copies are given to students earlier in the day, the assignment instructions along with an electronic copy will be posted as well.

  2. Assignments for the eLearning day will be due at the end of the school day on Wednesday, February 21st.  Additional time will be allotted at each individual teacher’s discretion.

  3. Teachers will be available on their phone for a total of 3 hours on either Saturday, Feb. 17, Monday, Feb. 19, or Tuesday, Feb. 20.  Every teacher will be available for a minimum of one (1) hour on Saturday, Feb. 17th.  

  1. Teacher “office hours” and contact information will be listed with the assignments on the corporation website and/or through handouts from the teacher to students before the eLearning day.

  2. Teachers will be expected to return any phone calls they are not able to answer during their posted "office hours" within one hour.

  3. A Tech Helpline will be available starting at 8:00 am Saturday, February 17th and will last until the end of the school day on the 21st.  That information will be posted with assignments on February 16th.

  4. For students with limited or no access to the Internet, assignments may be downloaded on Chromebooks and/or paper copies of assignments will be provided and given to those students before going home on Friday, Feb 16.

  5. The High School Library will be open from 8:00 am - 11:00 am on Saturday, February 17 for all students to get technology help or to just have access to the Internet.  The MS/HS Library will also be open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings Feb. 19 - 21 from 7:00 am- 8:00 am.

  6. The LES library will be open from 3:00 - 5:00 pm on Monday, February 19th and the LMHS library will be open from 3:00 - 5:00 pm on Monday, February 19th and Tuesday, February 20th for students who need help on their assignments or for students who have limited Internet access at home.

  7. We are currently reaching out to local businesses and organizations with wifi access to allow students access at their facilities during the eLearning assignment window.  That information will be posted soon on the school website.
