As the winter of 2017-18 continues to bring heavy snows and unusually cold weather, e-learning programs provide a way for schools to continue meeting their students’ educational needs. The state of Indiana, for example, currently has about 170 public and private school districts approved for e-learning days. “In the old days, school was just canceled,” said Holly Stachler, director of communications for the Indiana Department of Education. “But now, there may be no school on campus, but it’s [still] an e-learning day.” The option to provide internet-based instruction has been available to Hoosier schools for six years. Stachler said the formal program was initiated in the 2013-14 school year.
