ETS Virtual/Distance Learning Meal Credit: During the pandemic, ETS has received permission from the US Department of Education to provide meal supplements for virtual, distance learning activities. For every 90 minutes of ETS Virtual or Distance Learning Activities, the ETS Participant will earn a meal credit of $10. A participant can earn up to $100 per month in meal credits. At the end of the month, the meal credits will be tallied and the student will be sent a virtual meal supplement check. The check will usually arrive by the middle of the following month, depending on administration and mailing processes.
Friend us on Facebook at Educational TalentSearch EKU, to have access to the quick, pop-up online classes that become available. These classes have limit space and tend to fill very quickly, so quick responses are important.
Outschool Classes: Subject Area include Arts, Coding & Tech, English, Health & Wellness, Life Skills, Math, Music, Science & Nature, Social Studies and World Languages. Classes are online through the Outschool website and use Zoom format for most activities. ETS identifies classes that meet the Educational Talent Search mission. Classes will be posted in the ETS Facebook page. ETS will enroll students and pay for the cost of the class. Students, parent/guardians are notified of class enrollment status with directions for logging into the Outschool website and class. Students who are registered for such classes (particularly in Outschool), who do not attend or do not submit their Class Assignment Form, will lose meal credit in the amount of the class cost.
