Distance Learning

Education outside the Classroom

Under the direction of Superintendent Martinez, all MDUSD schools are closed at this time. While we are under a shelter-in-place order, our community faces a number of challenges. Our team at El Dorado is still working from a distance to ensure all students have opportunities to engage in learning and skill development!

At this time, students are expected to be working on assignments. We know that learning from a distance has challenges, and we are here to support! Teachers are available every weekday for at least an hour; some teachers focus on emails while others are holding video conferences. Be sure to check out the resources below for more information about how to access classes with technology.

For Quarter 4 (starting March 17), all students will receive a Pass or No Pass rather than letter grades. If students pass, they will get credit; if students do not pass, they will get no credit. Teachers will continue to provide feedback to students on assignments and their progress towards mastery of skills. Progress Reports for Quarter 4 will be sent home to alert students and parents/guardians of progress and any concerns that the student may receive no credit.

Technology Access

Many instructional resources are available online. If you need a Chromebook, please contact Mr. Wood to set up a time to get one.

If your household needs access to internet, there are some community resources available. Everyone On has a special offer for MDUSD families. Comcast offers two months free if you sign up in April 2020 through "Internet Essentials" program. 

If you cannot access a teacher's Google Classroom or other online class information, please email your teacher.

For many of our families, food insecurity is an overwhelming reality.  Below is a list of food resources and tools for finding food in our surrounding community.
