MARSHALL (KMHL) – The Marshall School District now has an E-Learning Day plan. The school board approved a proposal at their meeting Tuesday night.

The plan will allow the district to use up to 5 E-Learning days a year in the event that weather causes multiple school closures starting this fall.

It will make teachers available by phone, e-mail or through a digital learning space during the school day. It gives teachers the flexibility to work from home or from school on the E-learning days.

In addition, the plan makes accommodations for students who do not have internet access at home. Students will be given three days to turn in work assigned on the E-learning day to allow time for that work to be completed.

Parents will still receive notification of the E-learning days in the same manner in which they have received notification of weather cancellations.

The decision by the school district comes after winter weather created havoc on many Minnesota School District’s calendars.
