Welcome to eLearning at Bishop Chatard
We use many online tools to support learning. Here are a few of our most important academic systems:
E-Learning At BCHSBishop Chatard High School could potentially utilize the option of eLearning for missed school days, such as snow days. In the event that this would occur, the school building will be closed.
BCHS Continuous Learning Plan, a document for the IDOE
- Students are required to utilize their iPad or other electronic device and complete course content in Canvas.
- Learning for the student will continue as close as possible as it would on a regular school day.
- Students should log in to Canvas early in the day to begin class work.
What should a student do?

- The course schedule for the day will be followed. That schedule can be found on the front page of The-Blueprint.org

- Students are required to complete an attendance form for each class. Each teacher will post the attendance form on their Canvas page by 9 a.m. Attendance forms must be completed by 1:00 p.m. Failure to complete the attendance form will result in a student being marked unexcused for that particular class and work submitted will not receive credit.

How can students prepare for an eLearning Day?
Be certain you know how to access Canvas from home.
Check your ipad. Can it be charged? Is it operating correctly?
If you need assistance with your iPad or home internet access, please see the tech counter.
Ask a teacher if you have any additional questions.
PowerSchoolPowerSchool stores all of our student information: family information, grades, and transcripts. Students and parents have access to PowerSchool as their source for up-to-date information on student performance.
Collaborative Learning Center, Library Research DatabaseAll students have access to an online library database through the Marion Count Internet Library as a great reference and research resource. BCHS students can also access an electronic card catalog and make hold requests of BCHS library books through the ‘DestinyQuest’ app on their iPads. e-Books can be read via their Follett’s Reader app.
MobileServe Service Hour Reporting AppAll service hours are reported online via our MobileServe app. Students can use the app via iPad or cell phone to record hours at the location of the service. Students can also access announcements of service opportunities and a calendar for upcoming events in MobileServe.
Scoir College & Careers SoftwareScoir streamlines the process of requesting, processing, sending and tracking the electronic delivery of all college application-related documents. More importantly, it’s very helpful for students and parents during the college search and selection process.
Digital Learning ToolsOur teachers use a variety of online tools to support their instruction. These tools are Web-based, so that students can access them from anywhere. This helps students spend extra time on learning at home or on the road. Our toolkit includes ALEKS for math, Khan Academy, Duolingo, Kahoot!, CK12, IXL.com and Albert Academy. We select learning tools that are engaging, fun, and augment our students’ classroom experience effectively.
My Meal TimeBCHS uses MyMealTime.com for our families’ convenience in the payment of lunches. It is not required. BCHS sets up an account and personal PIN number for each student. Money can be added to a student’s account online, as well as viewing account history and balance remaining. Applications for Free-Reduced Lunch benefits can also be made through MyMealTime.com.
SchoolMessengerSchool Messenger is the phone and text messaging system BCHS uses to contact parents for urgent announcements, such as school closings due to weather. Phone numbers in PowerSchool are used to send these messages.
SafeArrival Absence ReportingSafeArrival, a part of School Messenger, is used to report student absences during the school year. Parents can report absences via a phone number, website or app.
