What will a student’s schedule look like in the virtual setting?
Pre-Kindergarten 3 and 4 (PK3 and PK4): Short, small bursts of learning and individual learning activities are most effective for our youngest learners. Therefore, the PK3 and PK4 structure of the day will include lessons in small groups focusing on developing a love of learning, and individualized lessons that families can also join. The PK3 and PK4 schedule will also include asynchronous (watch videos on your own at any time) lessons for art, music and other skills so that families can access lessons when it works for their children. PK3 and PK4 students will have live learning and asynchronous lessons for an average total of about 2-3 hours per day.
Elementary Students: A strong foundation begins with a love of learning. The elementary schedule will focus on ensuring students have access weekly to English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, as well as exposure to art, music and other enriching content. These schedules will include a mixture of whole-class lessons and small group skills. On most days, elementary students will have 2-3 hours of live learning and additional asynchronous lessons.
Middle Grades: Middle grades students are exploring their passions and preparing for high school. Therefore, the middle grades schedules will focus on ensuring exposure to a wide range of topics and courses, with the support of expert teachers. A schedule will include English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Math, and Electives. On most days, middle grades students will have 4-5 hours of live learning and additional asynchronous lessons.
High School: High school students are mastering topics critical to be on track for college and career. The virtual schedule will ensure that content presented in high school remains on track and rigorous — with deep engagement in courses on a student’s path to graduation. On most days, high school students will have 4-5 hours a day of live learning and additional asynchronous lessons.
