Online Learning » Elementary


The success of an elementary online student is heavily dependent on parents being actively involved in the instructional process on a daily basis. Participation and attendance expectations will require parents to establish and manage the daily schedule communicated by the teacher.  


Time Requirement 
While students may not necessarily have live instruction during the entire day, students should plan for approximately 4 hours of their day to be involved in a mix of live instruction and independent work with their teachers and other online students. With that in mind, for the best learning experience, we would like students to be available for instruction at the same time as their teacher, as their daily schedule permits.
