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

Bishop Chatard High School could potentially utilize the option of an eLearning day for missed school days, such as snow days. In the event that this would occur, the school building will be closed.

General Expectations

  • 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?

  1. Utilize Canvas for class instructional material. Login early but after 9:00 a.m..
  2. The course schedule for the day will be followed. That schedule can be found on the front page of The-Blueprint.org

  3. 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.
  4. Students are required to complete and submit all coursework as defined by the teacher.
  5. Student work will be graded and recorded in Powerschool. Work is due at the date/time defined by the teacher.
