Efforts are underway to reinstate eLearning at Oregon-Davis Schools. Superintendent Dr. Don Harman says he discussed the idea of adding some eLearning language to the 2019-2020 school calendar with the school board Monday.
The plan is that the school corporation would continue to use built-in snow days, but would have eLearning available in case school has to be closed for multiple days. “If we know that there is a large snow storm coming and we know that we’re going to be out of school for three days, or if we know that there’s a big cold snap like we just had this winter, if we know we’re going to have to shut school down for three or four days and we know that in advance, we can prepare our students for lessons and to do work at home through their iPads,” Harman explains.
Harman says he’ll bring the proposed eLearning provision back to the school board for final approval on June 10. Oregon-Davis has used eLearning days in the past, but last summer, school officials decided to do away with them, citing a desire to have students in the classroom as much as possible.
