How and If to Use Purchased Online Courses  

Picture

When you have met with your mentor teacher and your child's WSLP has been written, your child can be registered for online classes by requesting the class through the same online order form used for other curriculum.  Christine will be overseeing this. Check out all our offerings below.
Most online courses require unlimited high speed Internet. 

(A plan with 5G or 10G limits, such as a Verizon hot spot, will not suffice.)
Our computer lab will have high speed Internet and will be available during school hours.

How do I sign up for these online courses?

Is online learning right for your child? 
Students who do well with online coursework tend to have the following going for them:
  • The maturity (or computer controls) to stay with a task until it is completed without venturing off to other websites; 
  • Motivation to complete tasks online without constant supervision;
  • Required technology skills;
  • A history of completing assignments as instructed;
  • Daily supervision and accountability for online coursework at home;
  • Encouragement at home and a positive attitude toward school work;
  • Persistence when there are technology glitches.
