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 Day At BCHSAn E-Learning day allows for instruction and learning to continue for a student at home in the event of an unexpected cancellation of a regularly scheduled school day, such as a snow day.
How do I start?
To begin learning, log into Canvas. Teachers will post all learning objectives, course content and the attendance form via a Canvas quiz in Canvas by 9 a.m. Remember, you are responsible for all classes that were regularly scheduled for the missed school day.
View the class schedule for the day on The Blueprint.
How will teachers take attendance?
Teachers will be taking attendance via a Canvas quiz. You must complete the attendance form for EACH CLASS regularly scheduled for the day by 2 p.m. on the e-Learning Day.
Failure to do so will result in being marked unexcused for that particular class and work submitted will not receive credit.
Will my work be graded?
Yes. All student work will be graded and recorded in Powerschool. You are required to submit all coursework as defined by your teachers.
When is my work due?
Work is due at the date and time that is defined by the teacher.
What if I have a question?
All teachers are available for questions between 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. via email or discussion board. Teachers will make every effort to answer questions within one hour.
How should I 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.
Collaborative Learning Center, Library Research DatabaseAll students have access to an online library database, MyiLibrary.org, as a great reference and research resource. (A BCHS password or a Marion County library card is needed for some areas on this.) 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.
PivotWe use the Pivot assessment system to measure student knowledge and teach how to succeed with digital assessments. This system gives students, teachers and administrators a deeper understanding of student knowledge and helps focus instruction where it is most needed.
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.
Naviance Student College & CareersNaviance is a comprehensive college and career readiness solution that helps students align their strengths and interests to postsecondary goals and college matches. This can be used for completing personality and career assessments and searching for colleges.
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!, and CK12. 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.
