Parents and Students:
The District's Emergency eLearning Plan has been approved by the South Carolina Department of Education. The eLearning plan will allow students to do assignments virtually from home while schools are closed. This means you can continue learning despite the loss of in-person instructional time.
Every teacher for every course at Heyward is now developing digital lessons, activities, and/or assessments that will be accessible to you online during this break from school. Some teachers already utilize a digital framework (for example, Teams or Edmodo) for distribution of content and messages. Go directly there for instructions as you normally do.
Students who do not have access to the internet may pick up learning packets from your feeder schools between 9 AM and 1 PM on Wednesday, March 19.
Each teacher will be holding remote "Office Hours" daily from 9:30-11 AM and again from 1-2:30 PM. Most teachers will be using email for their communication.Students, it is your responsibility to know your school email addresses, passwords, and how to independently access any digital programs/resources (examples: Today's Class, CareerSafe, Health Center 21, etc.) that may be used during eLearning Days. Access codes for all classes and links to assignments are shown on the left by teacher. Contact your teachers via email (https://www.richlandone.org/domain/469) if you need assistance with your credentials and assignments.
The Information Technology (IT) Department will provide technical support to all staff, students, and parents of Richland School District 1 on eLearning Days. The IT Support Team can be reached by calling 803-231-7436. This number will be active Monday through Friday from the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
