About Virtual Learning:

As this is a virtual learning opportunity, in order to participate in this program your child will need to have access to technology and the internet. 

The total daily amount of instruction includes synchronous online instruction, as well as time spent independently working on offline activities assigned by the instructors. Classes will be held through Google Meet, and study material will be posted to Google Sites. Instructors will use methods of communication with parents and students that are equitable and accessible to the students.
