Virtual Learning

District-Approved Virtual Learning Option

Clover Park School District will provide five full days of in-person learning for grades K-12 in our schools this fall (in accordance with the school calendar).  

However, the school district is offering a virtual learning option for elementary and secondary students whose families have decided to not send their child back to school full-time in person.  

CPSD will be using OSPI approved online Alternative Learning Education (ALE) providers: 


Start of School Information

The first week of the school year will serve as an orientation week for students participating in virtual learning. Virtual students should be fully set up by Sept. 10. 

Elementary families should monitor their email for log-in information. Middle and high school families should expect a call from Graduation Alliance. You may also call 7-888-615-6115 to connect with the registration team (reference Clover Park Virtual School).

 

Key information to know as you make this decision on whether your child will participate in in-person learning or enroll in virtual learning for the 2021-22 school year: 

  • Your student will be enrolled for the FULL SCHOOL YEAR in this ALE program.  
  • This program is separate from the school district, so you will not have a classroom teacher(s) from your neighborhood school. 
  • Your student will continue to have access to resources and supports currently provided through the school district.

Because of the learning program, the district asks that you commit to a full year for the program.
