The East Lycoming School District is proud to be able to provide a variety of learning options to our students and their families during this unique time. This communication is designed to explain how we will handle the fluid movement between choices in order to ensure the best possible experience for our students.
- All requests for entrance in or movement to one of the options must be made by a parent.
- With the exception of an educational change due to a COVID-related incident, changes will be made on Mondays.
In-Person Learning Option: Student attends in-person, five days a week.
Classroom Connection Remote Learning Option: This option is designed as a short-term option. Students must attend classes synchronously and follow their schedule as if they were attending in-person, five days a week. This option is not designed for students who are absent from school for non-COVID related issues, it is not designed for students who are on family excursions. Attendance will be taken daily. Truancy consequences will apply if students do not attend. Teachers will provide a link for students to listen to instruction and to watch instruction. Teachers and students will use Google Classroom to acquire content, materials, assignments, and to communicate. This option is NOT designed for students to pick and choose the days that they come. This is a five-day a week option. This option is provided for students whose parent/guardian has notified the school that they have chosen the Classroom Connection option. As of September 22, 2020, we are no longer accepting new Classroom Connection students unless students require health-related remote option. At the end of the first quarter (October 29, 2020) this will only be an option for heatlh-related reasons.
eSpartan Academy Remote Learning Option: This option is designed as a long-term option. Students can attend their classes asynchronously. Attendance will be taken daily by tracking daily log-in. Truancy consequences will apply if students do not log-in daily. Students will log into caiu.geniussis.com daily and access their courses. Participation will reset at the end of the 9-weeks or the student can return to in-person instruction. As of September 22, 2020, we are no longer accepting new eSpartan students until the end of the first quarter.
