eLearning in Center Grove
Beginning in the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year, Center Grove Schools will utilize eLearning Days to make up lost instruction time due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Traditionally, Center Grove has utilized school make-up days built into the school calendar on holidays and, as needed, added to the end of the school year. The addition of eLearning days to our calendar reduces the disruption to student learning and eliminates the need for students to come to school to make up the missed day. eLearning also provides opportunities for our students to practice critical 21st Century Skills.
Center Grove will utilize two different eLearning models. Elementary/middle school students will utilize a Delayed eLearning model, while the high school students will utilize the Live eLearning model. All students will utilize Center Grove's online learning management platform, Canvas, to complete assignments. (Click here for information about how to access Canvas.)
Delayed eLearning (Elementary & Middle Schools; Grades K-8)
Students in grades K-8 will observe delayed eLearning. This means their eLearning will be delayed to a designated day. On that designated day, their teachers will post assignments in our learning management system, Canvas. Students will have five days from the designated eLearning date to complete their assigned work.
As an example, if school is cancelled on Friday, January 10th, students in grades K-8 will remain home and will not be expected to complete school work. On the designated eLearning make-up day, Monday, January 20th, assignments for students in grades K-8 will be posted in Canvas. Those students would have until January 27th to complete the work.
Live eLearning (High School; Grades 9-12)
Students in grades 9-12 will observe live eLearning. This means their eLearning will occur on that same day of the closure. Their teachers will post assignments in our learning management system, Canvas, by 9:00 a.m. Teachers will be available that day during office hours to communicate with students.
As an example, if school is cancelled on Friday, January 10th, students in grades 9-12 would do eLearning on that same day, Friday, January 10th. Students would access their assigned classwork via Canvas, beginning at 9:00 a.m. If students or parents have questions about their lessons, teachers would be available for communication during teacher office hours.
