Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are excited to announce that Southwest Dubois County School Corporation has been approved by the Indiana Department of Education to incorporate eLearning Days for the 2018-2019 school year.  An eLearning Day will allow students to work remotely from home in the case of inclement weather. Traditionally, SWDCS has had snow make-up days built into the school calendar and, as needed, added make-up days to the end of the school year calendar. In the era of accountability, these missed days mean that educational momentum is lost. Our eLearning days ensure that we maintain momentum with the curriculum, in addition to better preparing our students for ILEARN and AP exams.

If inclement weather is foreseeable and school is cancelled, SWDCS may use eLearning Days. It is important to note that if inclement weather is not foreseeable, SWDCS may forgo eLearning Days and the missed days could be made up using the four scheduled snow make-up day(s) that are already included in the SWDCS Calendar or by adding make up days to the end of the school  calendar if the four scheduled dates have been used.  Information regarding whether a school cancellation will be an eLearning day or a traditional make up day will be communicated at the time of the cancellation via school messenger.  

Important Information for Potential eLearning Days:

Southwest Dubois County School Corporation hopes these eLearning days will help our  students reach their potential by providing them a real world experience. Lessons will be prepared by each teacher that are a continuation of the material currently being discussed in each classroom.   

Sincerely,

Tim LaGrange

Estimados Padres/Tutores,

        Estamos emocionados de anunciar que la Corporación de Escuelas del Condado  Southwest Dubois ha sido aprobado por el Departamento de Educación para incorporar dias de “e-Learning”.  Un dia de “e-Learning” permitiría a los estudiantes trabajar  desde su casa en caso de mal tiempo. Tradicionalmente, SWDCS han tenido días de recuperación  que se agregan al final del calendario escolar.   Estos días perdidos significan que el tiempo educativo se pierde. Tener días de eLearning asegura que mantengamos el tiempo educativo con el plan de estudios, además de que nuestros estudiantes estén mejor preparados para los exámenes ISTEP y AP.

Información importante para la posibilidad de días de eLearning:

La Corporación de la Escuela del Condado de Dubois Southwest espera que estos días de eLearning ayuden a nuestros estudiantes a alcanzar su potencial proporcionándoles una experiencia universitaria o profesional en el mundo real. Las lecciones serán preparadas por cada maestro y son una continuación del material que se discute actualmente en cada aula.   

Sinceramente,

Tim LaGrange

Superintendente
