To ensure students can make up assignments as close to the missed day as possible, the EVSC will utilize the state’s Virtual Option as the method for recovering learning time lost for the snow day taken on January 5.
In the virtual option, students will be given their virtual lessons on Tuesday, January 17, and students will engage in the virtual lessons throughout the week with the support from teachers through virtual “office hours.” Assignments will then be due Tuesday, January 24. Students who do not complete the virtual lessons will be marked absent.
Students may do the work on their own time, with their device and Internet at home or other locations. Students also can make use of times the school building is open before and after school, and receive teacher support in those pre-determined times. Schools will communicate specific information regarding their extended hours with their families.
In addition, many of EVSC’s community partners have offered their facilities WIFI and devices for student use. Below is a partial list of EVSC’s community partners who have offered their facilities so that students can have access to computers and Internet. There are other partners that may be specific to certain schools not listed.
· The Boys and Girls Club
· The Dream Center
· Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library (all branches)
· Carver Community Center - Available Monday-Friday
