eLearning

Welcome to eLearning at Bishop Chatard

Students at computer
Bishop Chatard prepares students for success in the 21st Century by introducing eLearning into all aspects of the high school experience. Applications that open avenues for learning are introduced in classes and offered to students for use.
View BCHS Technology Responsible Use Policy
Bishop Chatard uses Apple products in academics: students have iPads, and teachers have Apple devices. Apple iWorks (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) is our primary productivity suite. We also use Google Suite and Microsoft Office 365. Students use their iPads as their main learning tool, both in classrooms and at home.

We use many online tools to support learning. Here are a few of our most important academic systems:

E-Learning Day At BCHS

An 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 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.
