Flexible Learning Plan
District 191 has a "Flexible Learning Plan" for when snow or other weather causes schools to be closed. With flexible learning days, learning is interrupted less throughout the school year. Avoiding canceled days also maintains the integrity of the district’s overall academic calendar so students, staff and families can plan ahead.
How does the Flexible Learning Plan work?
Under the plan, the first cancellation due to severe weather will remain a typical 'snow day' or school closure. For subsequent cancellations (up to 5 days), flexible learning days will be implemented. Though conducted at home, a flexible learning day is considered a regular school day. Students and teachers are expected to participate in flexible learning day activities.
On a flexible learning day, teachers, administrators and other licensed professionals will be available by email or Schoology from 9 to 11 a.m. and from 1 to 3 p.m. to answer questions, provide guidance or otherwise engage students.
For grades 6-12, teachers will publish lessons by 9 a.m. using Schoology, the district’s online learning system, so students can access courses and complete assigned work.
For grades PreK-5, students will complete portions of selected learning activities created and distributed in advance by their teachers.

Schoology is the hub for flexible learning days. It is required that students log into Schoology to get their assignments, information, and to ensure attendance is documented.
Students, staff and parents can provide feedback if a flexible learning day is called so the plan can be adjusted and improved going forward.
