E-Learning Program

books, laptop, pencil
  • Illinois School Code (105 ILCS 5/10-20.56) allows for the use of e-learning days in lieu of emergency days, but each school district’s e-learning program must be submitted for approval by the DuPage County Regional Office of Education (ROE). The plan must be approved every three years by our Board of Education. The ROE will review and approve our plan annually.

     

    E-learning days will be utilized in lieu of traditional "snow days." Please see the Emergency School Closing page for information about notification.
