Virtual Learning Option:

What is the “Virtual Learning Option?”

Virtual learning is instruction provided exclusively through online distance learning.

What materials are needed for virtual learning?

  • A device for each school aged child that is enrolled in virtual learning (desktop, laptop, Chromebook, or Ipad)
  • Internet Access (Please check with service provider to ensure your plan includes enough bandwith for multiple devices to be used simultaneously, if applicable) for the required 330 minutes per day.

Will the virtual learning be similar to what distance learning looked like in the Spring during the closure?

Students will be required to be physically logged in and actively participating in class for 330 minutes daily. Lessons will be scheduled and taught live with student participation. Daily attendance will be logged.

Will my child be required to participate in State Assessments?
