K-6 Grade Assessment Days

Assessment days for Englewood eLearning will be through Zoom. Your student will start the day with a Morning Meeting online to meet the class and get to know the teacher. After the morning meeting, your student will engage with their teacher in a virtual, one-on-one meeting. The teacher will be assessing students in both mathematics and English language arts. The virtual meeting will be approximately 30 minutes. You will be receiving a sign-up and more details regarding this important meeting from your student’s teacher in the next week.

7-12 Grade Family Information

Edgenuity Information

To help ensure your students can continue learning, we have partnered with Edgenuity® to offer virtual learning while your student attends Englewood eLearning. This partnership means that students have access to guided instruction delivered by educators and/or assigned lessons to work on independently. Virtual learning may be new to you and your students, so the following tips can offer structure and support to you both.


Your student will receive their Edgenuity account and login information next week. In the meantime, please watch this introduction video that covers the student experience in Edgenuity.


What do I need to know from my student’s school?

  • Make sure your student is aware of the requirements and expectations for virtual learning. More to come with regard to expectations! ƒ

  • Students will engage in ongoing synchronous sessions guided by Englewood teachers to ask questions and receive support in conjunction with the Edgenuity core courses.

  • Students may need to set aside additional time to complete assignments offline.


What are some tips for preparing my student to work at home?

  • Designate a comfortable place free from distractions as a work area for your student. ƒ

  • Offer structure, such as focus time, to increase engagement and promote progress.

  • Ensure your student has access to Wi-Fi and a charged device (preferably a district provided computer) *Note: Please complete this survey if you need Wi-Fi. ƒ

  • Periodically check in on students throughout their virtual sessions to make sure they’re actively working and learning, and in case they need additional help.


At-Home Support for Englewood eLearning

The following questions can help students understand that you’re invested in their education and that even though this form of learning may be different, they’re still expected to work and learn. Consider asking your student: ƒ

  • Do you have any questions about what you learned yesterday before getting started today? ƒ

  • What did your learning focus on today? ƒ

  • What did you accomplish today? ƒ

  • Did you find anything challenging today? If so, how did you overcome the challenge?

  • How can you apply what you learned, and/or what personal connections can you make to your learning?


We recommend frequent monitoring and hands-on assistance as needed from those providing the at-home support. *Note: If you have questions or cannot offer at-home support, reach out to your Englewood teachers or admin team for support. We are here to support you and want to assure you that even though your students may not be going into school every day, they can still receive a high-quality and engaging education that moves them forward in their learning. We look forward to supporting you and your learner as we embark upon this educational journey together!
