Maconaquah Schools’ eLearning Program

On Wednesday, December 3, 2014 Mrs. Judy Off, Mr. Craig Jernagan, Dr. James Callane, Mr. David Scheblo and I, attended a meeting of the Indiana State Board of Education in response to an invitation from Ms. Candice Dodson (Technology Director, IDOE) to testify about the value of the eLearning or Flex Learning initiative. 


Maconaquah Schools missed sixteen school days during the 2013-14 school year due to inclement weather.  In December of 2013, Mrs. Off asked the IDOE if Maconaquah could use eLearning days as regular school days.  She was given permission, if we could offer this for grades K-12, which we did.  We used four eLearning days during the second semester of the 2013-14 school year, which reduced the number of make-up days to 12. 


Before the 2014-15 school year started, Mrs. Off submitted an application to the IDOE for permission to schedule four eLearning days (one per grading period) for grades 6-12.  She also requested permission to use eLearning days when school was cancelled due to inclement weather.  Both requests were approved.
