Welcome to Pope County Elementary/Jr. High School

Pope County CUSD #1
Remote Learning Day
Created March 30th 2020 in Response to the Statewide School Closure

Remote Learning Day (RLD) is intended to provide meaningful learning experiences for Pope County students when school is canceled. Parents and students are encouraged to integrate the following strategies into their RLD time:

  • Establish a quiet learning space and remove distractions to learning.
  • Create a routine for doing school work.
  • Review the online work and/or RLD Packet that needs to be completed.

Policies for an Remote Learning Day

Updates: The policies for RLD are designed to minimize the disruption to learning during this time of closure.

  • Remote Learning will begin on Tuesday, April 14th as declared by Dr. Carmen Ayala, State Superintendent of Education.
  • Since learning is occurring for students during the RLD, these days will count as a student attendance day and will not be made up at the end of the school year. Also, all previous Act of God days are counted as well.
  • Teachers will be available via email, Google Classroom, Zoom Meetings and other acceptable forms of communication between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The remainder of the day will be used for planning.
  • It is an expectation for all students to continue learning during this unprecedented time. Learning opportunities will NOT negatively impact student grades. The grading system will be Pass or Incomplete at the end of this period. Requirements have been adjusted to meet the recommendations of the Illinois State Board of Education. All students have extended time, opportunities to correct, etc. Teachers may continue to manage and post in their online gradebooks for student feedback, but the grading policy is Pass/Incomplete meaning if effort is put forth, a Pass grade will be given. We understand this is not ideal. Please do what you can do during this stressful time.

Instructional Delivery

  • Lessons will be delivered through online means: Examples- Google Classroom/Hangouts, Class Dojo, Remind, Zoom, etc.
  • Instructional packets mailed to students home.

Instructional delivery will be determined by the individual teachers, parents/guardians, and students working together to identify individual student needs.

Students with Individual Education Plans (IEP)

  • Pope County Special Education Teachers are following student plans and delivering each student’s planned minutes and/or program during this time remotely in the manner best suited for each student’s unique learning needs.
