Clover School District Selected for eLearning Pilot Program
CLOVER, S.C. – Clover School District has been selected as one of ten South Carolina school districts to participate in an eLearning Pilot Program for the 2019-20 school year, as announced by the Education Oversight Committee.
The 2019-2020 school year marks the second year of the proviso allowing school districts to use eLearning days in place of bad weather make-up days when school is missed. In 2018-19, five South Carolina school districts participated in the first year of the program and will mentor our program this year.
“This initiative has garnered a lot of attention throughout the state. We are excited to have been selected to participate and feel ready to implement authentic learning experiences in grades 3-12 through our eLearning platform or through printed lesson packets for PK-2nd grade,” said Dr. Sheila Quinn, CSD Superintendent.
This program will allow the district to further leverage its 1:1 initiative by allowing students to work virtually from home when the District is closed. CSD will use eLearning days for inclement weather or for unusual disruptions to the regular school schedule when it is possible.
As inclement weather days occur, CSD and schools will remind students and parents of eLearning day requirements. Digital learning packets will be made available for students via Canvas, the district’s primary online learning management software. Digitized lessons can also be downloaded to devices for students without internet access.
