At Home Learning Days

What are eLearning, Remote, and Flex Days?

eLearning Day (asynchronous)

A SACS eLearning Day is an UNPLANNED student learning day at home. eLearning Days are often issued to a weather cancelation, school emergency, or an event preventing students attending school in person. Students learn from home, at their own pace, ASYNCHRONOUSLY, utilizing CANVAS for both their assignments and to communicate with their teacher(s) throughout the day. 

State statute now limits all Indiana K-12 schools to three (3) asynchronous eLearning days due to weather emergencies to be counted toward the 180 required school days. 

Remote Learning Day (synchronous)

A SACS Remote Learning Day is also an unplanned student learning day at home but requires students to login from home during a specified time to receive direct instruction from teachers (SYNCHRONOUS Learning) via ZOOM when school is canceled.

Remote Learning requires at least 2.5 of synchronous learning for elementary students and three (3) hours of a secondary student's day to be comprised of direct instruction from teachers via ZOOM. Individual schools have personalized schedules and guides developed. Students will be aware of their  class/teacher expectations should SACS have to issue a Remote Learning Day.

Remote Learning Days were designed to meet the new state statute limiting schools to three eLearning Days and to avoid adding additional days at the end of the school year. 

Flex Day (asynchronous)

A Flex Day is a PLANNED eLearning day. On a scheduled Flex Day students attend school at home utilizing CAVNAS for assignments while teachers and staff receive professional development and training at school. Unlike an eLearning Day, staff are unavailable in the morning but are available via email/technology later in the day. Teachers will communicate their specific hours.
