Vision of eLearning

Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95 seeks to offer a meaningful learning experience for all students that advances learning at every level and in every course.

The success of eLearning is dependent upon all of us doing our part. Students, staff, and parents all have a role to play and each must be accountable in order to continue fostering an effective learning experience. We understand and appreciate the immense effort put forth by each of our families to incorporate eLearning into their daily lives while balancing family and work-related responsibilities. We are extremely grateful for this support, and pledge to offer our families accommodations they may  need to ensure that their student(s) have a successful eLearning experience.
