Why would BSD2 use an eLearning Day?

Posted by:

The primary reason for using an eLearning Day is to maintain the momentum of learning. The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) established this option for schools who have the ability to provide high-quality instruction electronically in the event of severe weather that would normally require a school day to be canceled. Provided a school can provide five hours of electronic instruction, ISBE will grant the school the ability to provide instruction to students virtually and to count the day as a regular school day rather than using built-in emergency days at the end of the school year.
