Print this articleStatement from the Superintendent 11-22-2019

La Porte Community School Corporation was alerted by La Porte City Police Chief of an incident where police had a perimeter set and were surrounding a residence in the area of 2nd and I street around 4:00 pm.  At the time we were alerted to the incident we were preparing to host after school activities and practices.  Our response was to prepare our high school staff to be on alert in the event the situation changed.

This decision for a staff alert was made after speaking with the police and being comfortable that the situation was contained within the perimeter.  At the high school, including the surrounding neighborhood, traffic was flowing, businesses remained open, and there was no indication or information that we were aware of that police were concerned of a threat being present.  Had that been the case we would have blocked off entrances so visitors and parents could not enter the grounds and called for a lockout.

eLearning Update

November 14, 2019

Why We Do eLearning Days

La Porte Community School Corporation implemented eLearning days for purposes of providing valuable educational experiences that teach our students life skills via modern technology. Using a blended learning model of technology and traditional learning methods, students are taught not only how to learn in a digital environment but also how to work independently or in a collaborative setting.

 

Intended outcomes for eLearning:

  • Students gain experience in online course work, digital curriculum, and technology that they will need for future college and career purposes.
  • Staff gain knowledge on the use of technology as an educational tool as well as curriculum development.
  • State standards for computer science curriculum are embedded in classroom assignments and activities.

eLearning days have not been implemented to be used in place of a cancelled school day. 

We are not ruling out the potential for using an eLearning day in the future on a day when school is cancelled.  At this time, survey results continue to reinforce that many parents and students are still struggling on our planned eLearning days with limited computer/internet access, limited familiarity with school online resources, and planning time to work with their children to assure work is completed. The school system continues to work on our intended outcomes and to address the shared concerns to guarantee a successful experience for all students.  At this time, the areas of needed improvement would be magnified if students and parents had to wake up in the morning on any given day of the week to find out that school was cancelled and the day was going to be an eLearning day.
