The first official E-Learning day for students

Mazie Maluka


On Feb. 25 Stevens Point Area Senior High (SPASH) sent out an email reminder to students about each student’s responsibilities on March 3 according to their grade.

With the ACT + Writing testing (ACT) for juniors, many have begun to studying and stressing over the testing already. The sophomores have an all-day trip planned for Mid-State Technical College (MSTC) and the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP).

Only sophomores and juniors have to report to the SPASH building. In past years this was usually an off-day for seniors, but this year the seniors will be having an E-Learning day so the school can count this as an official school day.

In the email it was explained that “All seniors are required to login to Schoology anytime on Tuesday, March 3, 2020…” for attendance purposes. Schoology will verify that students are electronically attending class.

The SPASH district has been incorporating more electronic elements into the classroom for years now. This is the newest way that SPASH is modifying how students are taught to keep up with technological advancements.

This accessible means of communication makes collaborating and working with teachers easy for students to work outside of the classroom with access to all the tools they have available when they are in the building.

Each teacher will post their own assignment specific to their class. Most assignments are supposed to take 20 minutes on average for a student to complete. Teachers usually post an assignment that ties into the class material that students are currently studying or are using this as an opportunity to introduce new material.
