e-Learning at S9GS

2015-2016

What is e-Learning?


The Madison County Schools eLearning days will offer full access to online instruction provided by each students’ individual teachers. Teachers will create lessons in Canvas, the school’s learning management system. These lessons will be interactive and relate to the curriculum for the specific class. Four eLearning days will occur throughout the school year. These days will be within the 180 days in 2015-2016 school year. Students will have access to teachers via the Internet.

If students do not have Internet at home, they may attend their school and participate in a modified day or utilize a location with computers and Wi-Fi access. These places include going to a friend’s home, using the public library, or using one of the numerous local businesses offering free Wi-Fi. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an alternative assignment with a parents request to the school.
