Richton Square School e-Learning
As the weather outside becomes more frightful, the thought of our new eLearning Days Plan becomes more and more delightful. Under Illinois Public Act 101-0012, the Illinois School Board of Education (ISBE) opened the door for all school districts to use technology initiatives for teaching and learning outside the traditional classroom. This new initiative is to be used in lieu of traditional snow days. It is an innovative, engaging instructional model to keep the sequence of learning going in spite of weather and other challenges. More importantly, it has provided teachers and students the opportunity to engage with digital resources, to collaborate virtually, and to develop digital skills that are used and valued beyond Pre-K-12.
Parents, in the event of an emergency school closing, Richton's e-Learning Plan is attached. The goal is for each student to spend at least (2.5 clock hours for half-day) and (5 clock hours for full-day) on school work for each E-Learning day.
Click the link below to sign in for the online attendance tracker. Teachers will contact parents/guardians via the classroom communication app (Remind), or e-mail during the e-Learning day to ensure engagement.
All Richton students have been provided a printed packet of the choice board assignments. Parents if you have misplaced the packet, clink the proper link below to access the choice boards. The assignments must be turned in to the homeroom teacher the next day school is in session. Please call Richton Square School at 708-283-2706 with any questions you may have.
Thank you for your understanding in this endeavor! Stay warm; we will see you soon.
