Greetings eDCSD Community…
Now that the learning curve for online school has tapered off, students are truly excited about their courses.
“The classes are going great, I am loving eDCSD, it’s different, but I am seeming to understand what I am learning.”
Indeed, it is student engagement and participation that will make a difference in their experience.
That said, I would like to remind you to reference the eDCSD Online Code located in the Main Office of eDCSD-IQity. This code contains the “netiquette” for online interaction.
In addition, please reference the attached Student Contact Policy (This policy is also located in the Main Office under Resources for Parents and Students). Within this document you will find the “attendance” expectations for online students. Please keep in mind that if your student is unable to participate in their course work for an extended period of time, it is most important that their teachers be contacted.
We also realize that many students joined us late or have simply just now over come a variety of obstacles prohibiting them from staying current with their classwork. While teachers will not be available during the up coming Fall Break (October 20th – 24th) we do encourage students to continue working should they need this time to catch.
Otherwise, enjoy your time, as this is indeed one of the most beautiful seasons.
Until next time….
