South Harrison Virtual Learning & Supports Program

  • Dear Students & Parents/Guardians: 

     

    South Harrison Township Elementary School District is dedicated to the continuity of instruction and supports while we respond to the present public health scare. As of Tuesday, March 17th, the district has adopted a Virtual Learning Plan in which learning and related supports will continue through an online platform – Google (Google ClassroomGoogle Meet, etc.). Teachers will be posting assignments daily in their Google Classrooms and will be available during regular school hours.  Additionally, “Office Hours” by grade level (see below) have been designated so that students can reach out and receive immediate answers to their questions.

     

    While South Harrison's Virtual Learning Program is not intended to replace the traditional classroom environment, teachers will still be able to deliver standards-based instruction until the normal school schedule can resume. Additionally, special education case managers will also continue to provide supports remotely during this time through Google (Google Classroom, Google Meet, Google Sites, etc.).

     

    The purpose of this website is to outline how South Harrison will continue to provide instruction and educational supports in a virtual learning format while the school setting is not available. The information below provides a brief overview of roles and responsibilities for teachers, students, and parents as the success of the Virtual Learning Program will be dependent upon the dedication of all stakeholders.  More information and resources will be added as we continue through this journey.
