Online Learning Days


Online Learning Plan for School Closures

Dawson County Schools will recover instructional time lost due to school closures by utilizing online learning using Schoology, the district's online learning management system. This school year, 2017-18, is the first year of the Online Learning Plan for School Closures. After missing two (2) days of school for inclement weather, which have been placed in the 2017-18 school calendar, students will be asked to complete assignments at home.  We understand and realize that during a weather emergency that there could be sporadic power outages, internet unavailability, etc. That is why our lesson plans have some activities available online and some that your child can complete at home without the use of technology. Upon return to school, students will be given five days to complete any work assigned that may have not been completed.

 

For 2017-2018 School Year

  • Teachers will post all assignments by 9 am in Schoology on the first O-Learning day.
  • Assignments will be limited to no more than 20min/subject. This includes any assigned reading, multimedia and/or videos.
  • Students should begin working on their lessons on the day missed when possible. Student work is due five school days after returning to school.
  • Student attendance is not connected to the completion of work.
