Pods4Learning (TK & K)
As part of Virtual Pathways, we offer Pods4Learning, a parent-led and Evergreen School District-supported homeschooling experience for transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten students. Our program is ideal for a parent who is available at least three hours per day for direct student instruction (depending on student’s grade level) with additional time for daily or weekly lesson preparation, Monday-Friday to facilitate their child’s learning and supervision, and for a parent who has an interest in homeschooling their child. For the 2021-2022 school year, this program is limited to 24 TK students and 24 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.
District approved curriculum aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
Parents and students receive daily personalized coaching and/or live interaction from a credentialed teacher.
An alternative instructional program through which all enrolled students in grades TK and kindergarten may achieve curriculum objectives in a setting other than the regular classroom.
Gives parents the opportunity to teach their children at home with support from a supervising, credentialed teacher/learning coach.
Weekly learning success packets, supporting materials, along with an iPad, are also included in this program.
A stand-alone district program that is not tied to any individual school sites.
Is FREE and open to all students in the Evergreen School District, Santa Clara County, and adjoining counties: Santa Cruz, San Mateo, San Joaquin, Alameda, Stanislaus, Merced and San Benito with inter-district transfer.
