eLcs: eLearning Consultants
eLcs are teachers within the district who support elearning by testing new technologies, planning and running professional development, and advance district technology goals.
Teachers are chosen from every building in the district. We use Title IIA funds to provide a $500.00 stipend to each eLc each year. The teachers all have a full student course load, this is an supplemental role. For 2011-12:
- Elementary (5 buildings): 23
- Middle (3 buildings): 15
- High (1 building): 15
The number per level and per building is determined on the initiatives that year in eLearning & technology, and population of building. A complete description can be found here.
eKids are students in the district who participate an eLearning educational track. Their responsibilities include learning new technologies (often at a deep level), assisting staff with technology needs, and developing additional eLearning opportunities.
