D70's Proposed e-Learning Plan for Snow Days
District 70

District 70 has created an e-Learning Plan to replace Emergency Days through the next three school years, 2020-2023.  

The plan would allow District 70 to use e-Learning days, instead of Emergency Days (such as Snow Days), so that students can continue to learn remotely.

The state mandates that five emergency days are built into the school calendar to accommodate emergency school closures due to inclement weather or other events beyond our control (flooding, school power outages, etc.).  The emergency days are built into the school calendar at the end of every school year.

The e-Learning Plan, approved by the school board on Oct. 26 and pending approval before the Regional Office of education, will allow students to learn remotely when school has to be closed and also will allow the school year to end on a set date without being extended to accommodate the built-in emergency days.
