All finals are due by Thursday, March 15th at midnight.  Friday, March 16th is a teacher work day and there is no school that day followed by spring break March 19 - 23. Don’t forget that we also spring forward this Sunday so remember to change those clocks!  Please read this week’s announcements below.

eDCSD is on a quarterly grading period system.  The end of the grading period is Thursday, March 15th, for the third quarter. All regular work is due by SUNDAY, March 11 AT MIDNIGHT and the next week is final exams.
At the high school level, a passing grade (D or above) at the end of the quarter is equal to .25 credits added to their transcript.  Quarter 3 and quarter 4 grades are not averaged. They are individual terms and are posted separately. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Important System Update (All Students)
As you are aware, we will be moving away from Moodle and Plato next year.  Starting in summer school, we will be using Canvas for our new learning management system (LMS) and partnering with several content vendors to ensure we can deliver the quality education our students need with the ability to still create a personalized experience.  Here is a demo of what it will look like for students and here is a link to other Canvas videos.  If you have any questions about this change, please reach out to Kristy Hart (kristy.hart@dcsdk12.org).
