Starting September 2, 2020, DUCS will observe Virtual Wednesdays. Students who have chosen face-to-face instruction will attend in-person classes on Monday, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. All students will attend classes virtually on Wednesdays. Virtual Wednesdays will allow DUCS faculty and staff time to work with face-to-face students and Bulldog Virtual Students. All students will receive their lessons through Google Classroom for students in 3rd through 12th grade and Seesaw Learning for students in kindergarten through 2nd grade.

This is a regular day of school. Indiana State Law (IC 20-30-2-3) establishes daily hours students should expect to spend completing their school work. Elementary students should expect to spend five hours a day. Junior and Senior High School students should expect to spend six hours per day (see IC 20-30-2-2).
How will attendance be reported on Wednesdays?
Bulldog Virtual Program
Students enrolled in the Bulldog Virtual program will continue to document their attendance in accordance to the DUCS Re-Entry Plan. Students will continue answering a daily question in Google Classroom, for grades 3-12, or Seesaw Learning, for kindergarten through grade 2, to determine if they have logged on to the learning management system. Students are expected to answer the question by 11:59 PM of the school day.
Students in grades kindergarten through 2nd grade should mark their daily attendance chart by 11:59 PM
Students in grades 3rd through 6th grade will answer a daily question posted in their class’ Google Classroom. The daily question will determine their attendance for the school day. The question must be answered by 11:59 PM to be counted present.
Junior and Senior High School students will answer a daily question to determine whether they have logged into Google Classroom in their Bulldog 101 class. The administration will post on the school calendar, which can be found on the school website, Facebook, and Instagram whether it is Black Day or Gold Day. Students will answer the question in the respective Bulldog 101 class.
Failure to answer the question by 11:59 PM may result in an absence for the day. If students are unable to complete their Virtual Wednesday assignments due to an illness should contact the Attendance Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
