Eden Prairie Schools adopted a grades 7-12 e-Learning Plan. The 2017 Legislature amended the Length of School Year; Hours of Instruction (Minn. Stat. § 120A.41) to include the option of a school district utilizing e-Learning days due to inclement weather. There are no e-Learning days for students in grades K-6, because the independence required for e-learning at this age (especially primary students) can be challenging. Also, the required instructional time in Eden Prairie Elementary Schools exceeds the minimum number of hours required by the Department of Education.
Eden Prairie Schools e-Learning plan will allow schools to minimize the impact of loss of learning for our secondary students when inclement weather arises, and for up to five days in one school year. The full plan includes frequently asked questions.
