Back To Front Page


The Duneland School Corporation has announced the elimination of the eLearning day scheduled for April 3.

In a press release the administration said that the DSC “believes in the evaluation of programs and practices within our schools to maximize the opportunity for all our students to succeed. We have listened to the concerns of our school community, including parents, guardians, and staff, regarding the number of eLearning days in our 2018-2019 school calendar.

“After reflecting on the use of these days, we believe our students have had ample opportunity to practice learning in a way that prepares them as 21st Century learners. Additionally, our staff has utilized this time to reflect on curriculum and to receive professional development.

“After much discussion, Duneland School officials have decided to eliminate the Wednesday, April 3 eLearning day from the 2018-2019 school calendar. This decision means that students will now attend school on Wednesday, April 3 and will not stay home for an eLearning day.”

May 7 eLearning Day Still On

The one eLearning date remaining on this year’s school calendar is the Tuesday, May 7, primary election day.

This day will be held as scheduled.

“Many of our schools are used as voting sites, so we believe that it is the safest choice to have our schools closed to students on election day. We will utilize this remaining day with staff to continue progress on our professional development goals as students have one final eLearning opportunity for this school year,” the press release said.

“We are thankful for the ongoing support, feedback, and partnerships we have with parents and the entire Duneland community. We will continue to rely on these partnerships as we move forward in making recommendations for reducing the number of eLearning days for the 2019-2020 school calendar.”
