Welcome To Remote Learning

  • Remote Learning Began April 1 in SD 308

    Under the direction of the Governor and the Illinois State Board of Education, Illinois schools are operating on a remote learning model. 

    We have created a video to help you navigate remote learning, and complied helpful documents and links to guide you through this new way of learning (YouTube Link To Video & Video Transcript

    We appreciate your patience as we all learn this new system together!

    Schedule of Teacher/Student Interaction Times: 

    A district-wide schedule of live teacher/student interaction times has been created. This was done to avoid conflicts with multiple teachers scheduling these opportunities at the same time and also to recognize that many students may be sharing one device while at home. The schedule also reflects the amount of time students should be independently working or working with a parent to complete assignments outside of the live interaction time. A short video explaining the schedule is available for elementary parents (YouTube Link & Video Transcript) and secondary parents (YouTube Link & Video Transcript). 

    Remote Learning Attendance: 

    Teachers will monitor live interaction time, assignment completion and emails to make a list by the end of the week of students/parents that have not interacted with the teacher or materials.  To ensure that all students have access and the support they need, phone calls will be made to the parents of students who have not yet participated after a few days. 

    Elementary Students:  We encourage you to use the Choice Boards that were sent home with students before break. The Choice Boards are also posted here. Students should pick one activity from at least five of the boxes each day. It is important, if possible, to provide some structure for your young children.  There should be some set times each day for students to work on the Choice Boards.

    Secondary Students: Students will be receiving assignments and activities that will provide review and access to new content.  These assignments will be posted for students and parents in Tyler SIS (just like during regular school days). All teachers are creating Google Classrooms and will share details about assignments with students 3- 5 times a week through this forum.

    Grading Practices during Remote Learning for Junior High and High School:  During Remote Learning, teachers will give assignments and activities on new learning standards. Students will get feedback and/or grades on these assignments. As long as a student is engaged and performing at least at a passing level, a student’s grade will not be negatively impacted during Remote Learning. Here is a short video for further explanation.
