Distance Learning

The Distance Learning Service supports school districts in meeting the diverse academic needs of all students and seeks to fill the gap in teacher shortages. The evolution of technology provides more accessible and reliable delivery of instruction in any classroom or virtual setting. This service supports advanced, credit recovery, and remedial course options. In addition, this service provides 1:1 and group tutoring opportunities.

With an expansive course catalog, featuring synchronous and asynchronous online learning opportunities available, school districts have a variety of options for supporting students. This service also includes the design  and operation  of  the  connection systems,  management of  instruction,  reporting student  achievement  to  participating school districts and the evaluation of the service.
