Online, Remote, and Blended Learning

ISBE implemented remote learning in response to the COVID-19 emergency. Note that this is different from statutory e-learning plans. According to Emergency Rules: Part 5 – Remote Learning Days, the Remote Learning Day may be met through a district’s implementation of an e-learning program. Districts that do not have an e-learning plan must adopt a Remote Learning Day Plan approved by the school’s or district’s superintendent or chief administrator.

Professional Learning

The LTC facilitates professional learning opportunities for administrators and educators on remote learning days, e-learning plans, and online learning. You can also access our live and recorded webinars, free online courses, or contact us to discuss custom professional learning for your district.
