Lanesville Community School teachers and administrators believe that learning with technology should be a seamless experience for students rather than a special event. We are committed to providing students access to differentiated instruction at high cognitive levels. We believe that student learning is authentic when it involves real-world application with an emphasis on 21st Century skills and application.

In early 2014, our school district was honored to receive the Innovation Planning Grant from the Indiana Department of Education’s Office of eLearning. Our technology committee was awarded this grant by proposing the following goals:

  • The Technology Leadership Team will develop and implement a plan for a one-to-one initiative for all students in the Lanesville School District.
  • Our staff will prepare students for 21st Century career and post-secondary opportunities through the creation of a plan to implement digital curriculum in all K-12 classrooms.
  • The Technology Leadership Team will develop a Professional Development Plan to increase student engagement by providing staff with the skills and knowledge necessary to impart differentiated instruction to all students through implementation of one-to-one devices and digital curriculum.




When will assignments be posted?

  • Assignments will be posted by 9 AM (10 AM after 2 hour delay).
  • On Planned eLearning Days, teachers will post by 4 PM the night before the planned day.

When will teachers be available for help?

  • All teachers will be available between 8 AM and 3 PM on the eLearning day.  Each teacher will have provided the best method for contacting them on this day.  (Remind, email, etc).
  • Skim all assignments and complete more difficult ones first so you know you will be able to get ahold of your teacher with questions.

When are assignments due?

  • Assignments are due the next morning at the start of school.  

What if I don’t have internet?

  • Contact with teacher(s) still needs to be made.  
  • Many times teachers can give parts of the assignment that can be completed without internet to prevent the student from getting more behind than necessary.
  • You are still responsible for the work of the day; you will just be given more time to complete it.

What if my student has trouble completing an assignment (internet, questions, etc)?

  • Contact needs to be made with the teacher during the school day (8-3)..  
  • We will always work with students having problems and will give them time to complete their assignment as long as contact with the teacher was made DURING the day!.

How can students be counted absent for the day?

  • If work is not completed and no contact is made with the teacher to help troubleshoot any problems or provide some alternative ways to work without internet, students will be counted absent for the day.

What I can I expect from my teacher(s) that day?

  • Answer questions and provide support (both content/skills & assignment clarification) throughout the school day between 8 AM and 3 PM.  
  • Attempt to make contact with students who have not started their work by midday.

What are Planned eLearning Days?

  • These are pre-determined dates in which teachers will come to school for trainings and students will complete their work from home. No students will be in the building on these days.

Empowered Use Policy

Empowered Use Policy

I understand that using school owned digital devices (both at school and at home) and the Lanesville network is a privilege, and when I use them according to the Empowered Use Guidelines I will keep that privilege. Specifically, I will…

  • Take care of my device. (Return my device in the same condition as it was issued to me)
  • Come prepared to class everyday (device is charged and working, homework is completed).
  • Use digital devices, networks, and software in school for educational purposes and activities.
  • Keep my personal information (including home/mobile phone number, mailing address, and user password) and that of others private
  • Show respect for myself and others when using technology including social media
  •  Give acknowledgement to others for their ideas and work
  • Report devices that are not working properly (including those that are damaged or broken) to technology staff immediately
  • Report inappropriate use of technology immediately

Our new Empowered Use Policy was designed to do just that, empower our students to utilize technology and learn about how to embed it in their learning process.  These are guidelines that can apply to a wide array of situations that might arise at our school.  Please know that not all situations can be anticipated beforehand, but these guidelines should inform both students and parents about our expectations as a school corporation.

  • First break: $25
  • Second break: $75
  • Third break (and subsequent damages): Full cost of the device (approx. $400)
  • If you fail to pay these fines (or setup a payment plan), you will become a “day user”. (This means that you will not be permitted to take the device home until fees are paid.)
  • Intentional breaks will result in both damage fees and additional disciplinary action.
  • If you contribute to breaking another student’s device, you will be held responsible for that break as well.

What if I leave my device at home?

  • See Mr. Hancock for a single day loaner
  • Multiple checkouts will result in a detention or loss of recess

What if my device quits working?
