Gwinnett County Public Schools’ (GCPS) announced on Thursday, March 12 that it will be doing Digital Learning Days the week of March 16-20 as part of its response to the COVID-19 situation. The school district has successfully held DLDs in past years in response to inclement weather situations. While this is a different situation, our schools and teachers are prepared to deliver instruction virtually to minimize the disruption to learning.
How will it work for students?
On a Digital Learning Day, teachers will post assignments on their eCLASS C&I course pages. High school assignments will be posted by 7:30 a.m. Elementary school assignments will be posted by 9 a.m. And, middle school assignments will be posted by 10:30 a.m.
Students will use the MyeCLASS student portal to log in to their eCLASS C&I course pages where they will access assignments, resources, and other materials. If a student does not have access to a computer or device (tablet, smartphone, etc.), teachers may provide alternative ways to access assignments (e.g., via email), or the student can get the assignment once school resumes.
Student work will be expected to be turned in to the teacher (either digitally or in person) as explained by the teacher. Teachers will share additional information with students about Digital Learning Days, including how they will support student learning during the day. (For example, some teachers may set up a discussion board while others may use online conference tools or be available via phone.)
Parents and students who need a refresher course on how to access eCLASS C&I course pages can go to the following web page for helpful resources and information:
