eLearning Information (SCOREcards)

Dear Parents, 

The district's procedure for taking attendance on e-Learning days during the 2019-2020 school year is based on MARSS requirements, conversations with MDE and the district Administrative Procedure 503AP.  As a result of feedback received language below is the current attendance policy related to e-learning days.

Attendance

  • Parents/guardians can respond to the email from the teacher that they received the SCOREcard.
  • The teacher will attempt to call home for any student who does not respond via email.
  • Parents/guardians should call the school office by 10:15 for morning classes and 1:45 for afternoon classes if they do not have reliable internet access.
  • All absences will be marked in Infinite Campus as Unexcused. It is the responsibility of the student’s parent/guardian to request that absences are excused as stated in RAS Administrative Procedure 503AP.
  • Attendance will be changed to excused within 7 days of the declared e-Learning day by sending a written note or returning the assigned work from the e-Learning day.

    About eLearning in Robbinsdale

    Robbinsdale Area Schools’ e-Learning Plan is written to provide continued, standard-aligned, educational experiences to students on days with inclement weather due to extreme cold. E-Learning Days provide Robbinsdale Area Schools an alternative to extending the school year in the event of such weather events. Our plan is developed in accordance with Minnesota Statute
    120A.414 which states the following:


    Subdivision 1.Days. "E-learning day" means a school day where a school offers full access to online instruction provided by students' individual teachers due to inclement weather. A school district or charter school that chooses to have e-learning days may have up to five e-learning days in one school year. An e-learning day is counted as a day of instruction and included in the hours of instruction under section 120A.41.

    Subd. 2.Plan. A school board may adopt an e-learning day plan after consulting with the exclusive representative of the teachers. A charter school may adopt an e-learning day plan after consulting with its teachers. The plan must include accommodations for students without Internet access at home and for digital device access for families without the technology or an insufficient amount of technology for the number of children in the household. A school's e-learning day plan must provide accessible options for students with disabilities under chapter 125A.

    Subd. 3.Annual notice. A school district or charter school must notify parents and students of the e-learning day plan at the beginning of the school year.

    Subd. 4.Daily notice. On an e-learning day declared by the school, a school district or charter school must notify parents and students at least two hours prior to the normal school start time that students need to follow the e-learning day plan for that day.

    Subd. 5.Teacher access. Each student's teacher must be accessible both online and by telephone during normal school hours on an e-learning day to assist students and parents.
