Rock Hill Schools participates in eLearning pilot program

Two S.C. school districts make changes

ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - Rock Hill Schools is one of ten districts in South Carolina selected for the eLearning pilot program.

The program provides another way for schools to fit in make-up days in the school year. Rock Hill Schools Board Chairwoman Helena Miller says they run out of days in the schedule to fit make-up days.

“Between the snow days, hurricane-like weather, we’ve end up having inclement weather days and it happens every year,” Miller said.

The eLearning program allows students to make-up the inclement-weather day without going into school. Students can download the eLearning packet on their school-issued computer, then complete the work at home.

Miller says it will not require internet access because children can download the packet at school.

“This is just a way for us to utilize the technology that we already have that the kids are comfortable using,” Miller said.

Rock Hill Schools can make-up two canceled school-days using eLearning in the 2019-2020 school year. If the program is successful, it could be implemented statewide.
