Pods4Learning (TK and Kindergarten)
As part of Virtual Pathways, we are offering Pods4Learning, a new parent-led and district-supported homeschooling experience for transitional kindergarten and kindergarten students. Students learn standards-based curriculum with a group of up to five students in a virtual environment—ensuring social and emotional engagement with their peers. Two hours each week, parents and students receive personalized coaching from a learning coach (credentialed teacher). Weekly learning success packets, supporting materials, along with an iPad, are also included in this program. This program is limited to 25 transitional kindergarten students and 25 kindergarten students. More information can be found on our Pods4Learning program webpage.
Virtual Pathways (Grades 1-8)
Virtual Pathways, for grades one through eight, is a flexible alternative education program through which students learn standards-based curriculum in a virtual setting. This program provides parents the opportunity to teach their child at home under the guidance of a credentialed teacher/learning coach. Parents have the flexibility to teach and students have the flexibility to learn at their own pace. Parents and students will meet with their learning coach biweekly to discuss instructional strategies and progress towards or exceeding grade level expectations, as well as develop a learning plan and provide guidance. First and second grade students in the program will receive an iPad and third through eighth grade students will be issued a Chromebook. Students in grades 1-8 log into the program five times a week learning Language Arts (reading and writing), math, science, and social studies daily. More information can be found on our Virtual Pathways grades 1-8 program page.
