E-learning resources for Lee County, Collier County students
Starting Monday students will turn to online learning to continue their schoolwork while on break due to COVID-19 concerns.
The Lee County school district has posted a page that details how distance learning is going to work.
Login information is available on the page as well as extra resources to help during the transition.
Teachers will connect with your students using Google Classroom—and will have office hours so you can talk to them.
Kids will use a web application called LaunchPad to get access to all the software they are going to need.
If your student has a laptop, they will be able to keep the software.
Any household that doesn’t have a computer can get one. The district is also working to expand WiFi availability.
All the lessons will be digital but hard copy material can be picked up at Grab and Go meal sites, which can be found here.
DISTANCE LEARNING TOWN HALL
The district will also hold a Distance Learning Facebook Town Hall at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25 for parents with questions about the Instructional Continuity Plan. This will include a short presentation and time for parents to ask questions.
“We know some of our parents want to better understand how distance learning is going to work for them and their children,” says Chief Academic Officer Dr. Jeff Spiro. “This Facebook Town Hall is a chance for them to get answers to their questions so there is a continuity in instruction when students get their first Google Classroom assignments next week.”
If you are unable to join in live, you can always watch it on the School District’s Facebook page afterwards.
In advance of the Facebook Town Hall, parents can find The Academic and Instructional Continuity Plan for Students and Parents on www.leeschools.net.
Collier County district students will be participating in self-paced learning from Monday, March 23 through Friday, March 27.
Students should be accessing their self-paced learning pathways on our CCPS eLearns site. The district says it is important that all students access Canvas daily this week to be ready for teacher-led virtual instruction, which will begin Monday.

Information with details regarding the teacher-led instruction will be provided in an update by the end of this week.
Additionally, Tuesday is the last day to complete the Parent Survey for Computer and Internet Access.
Please complete the survey even if you do not have a need for a district-issued laptop.
