Virtual Learning

District-Approved Virtual Learning Option

Clover Park School District provides five full days of in-person learning for grades K-12 in our schools.

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 for full-time in-person learning. Online learning is considered Alternative Learning Experiences (ALE) instruction and is generally asynchronous or self-paced with some opportunity to connect with teachers. Students are enrolled for a full school year and may return to their resident school the following year.

Each student is assigned a district ALE case manager that monitors progress and communicates with the school and family. Case managers reach out weekly to check in with the student. Families and case managers work together to support student learning.

Elementary K-5 Virtual Learning Option

CPSD offers a flexible model that identifies core courses for students through Pearson Online Learning. The CPSD flexible model allows families and students to select the number and mode (asynchronous or synchronous) of extension and enrichment activities a student participates in. Families can opt in or out of offerings based on their student’s interest.

Asynchronous = Independent work, may have recorded lessons, may be completed at any time during the day.

Synchronous = Teacher-taught sessions that are scheduled for specific dates and times.
