Indiana’s eLearning law is House Bill 1093, which was passed in 2022. The law limits the number of eLearning days school districts can have in which less than half the day includes live instruction from teachers. Under this law, districts are only allowed to have three (3) asynchronous (simply posting assignments, etc.) eLearning days. School districts may have as many synchronous (live instruction) eLearning days as they want, and all will count toward the 180-day student instruction requirement. However, any asynchronous eLearning days (beyond the 3 allowable days) will not count toward the 180-day student instruction requirement. If a school needs to implement more than three (3) asynchronous eLearning days per school year, they are able to apply for a waiver, but it is only supposed to be approved for extraordinary circumstances. In 2022, Norwell Community Schools, in collaboration with building administration and teachers, made the collective decision that ALL eLearning days would be synchronous with live instruction from teachers. It was decided that asynchronous learning (posting assignments, etc.) would only be used in rare circumstances including for teachers who may have had a planned personal leave day or who are too ill to lead live instruction that day.

Good participation at last night's strategic planning session. We returned to the small table discussion format which produces better feedback. Groups identified new strengths and affirmed the great accomplishments of the past two years.
