An eLearning option will be offered to families for the 2021-2022 school year. Students who chose to participate in the program are expected to actively and consistently complete course activities while communicating frequently with the assigned teacher. While the eLearning curriculum will be limited and cannot mirror or match the full curriculum/experience of in-person instruction, it is led by Monrovia High School teachers and is guided by current Indiana State Standards.
We do maintain attendance for state reporting. Therefore, students are expected to log in each day that MGSD is in session, as we monitor virtual attendance just as we do for in-class instruction.
- Students who do not log in for 10 or more consecutive days will be scheduled for a family/guardian meeting with their school administrator.
- Students who choose eLearning instead of in-person instruction will be required to make a one semester commitment.
- A hybrid option is not available.
Students will have daily assignments for each course as well as a course completion date. Therefore, maintaining an appropriate pace and proactively communicating with the assigned teacher are critical to a successful eLearning experience. We recommended that students establish and follow a daily schedule such as the one below in order to actively and consistently complete course activities:
|Course||Start Time||End Time|
|Elective (if assigned)||11:50AM||12:30PM|
|Elective (if assigned)||12:40PM||1:20PM|
|Elective (if assigned)||1:30PM||2:10PM|
- MHS eLearning students will enroll in our online curriculum: Edmentum Courseware.
- ELA, math, science, and social studies courses will be the primary focus; additional courses may be added with administrative approval.
- Edmentum will allow students to earn credits towards their high school diploma, and upon the completion of each course students will earn a transcript grade of A, B, C, D, or F.

Our instructors will be available to proctor End of Course Assessments onsite during or after school hours to help ensure that students are being appropriately supported and to help mitigate any technical issues that might arise during those testing experiences. Socially-distanced classrooms are available, and access to a separate entrance and restroom is available during the school day by request. Alternately, students/families may choose proctored End of Course Assessments via Google Meet or Zoom. Students should contact their Mrs. Simpson to schedule their End of Semester Tests.
