House Enrolled Act 1093 recently passed and limits the number of e-learning (virtual instruction) days schools may use to 3 beginning with the 2022-2023 academic year. Next year we will not have as much flexibility in using e-learning days. Flex days will likely become instructional days and days may be added to the end of the year as needed. I'm sharing this now, so that you are aware and prepared for next school year.
