Thinking about online learning for your child?
- Online classes are flexible. Students can access classes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can review lessons as many times as needed.
- Online students often have more individual interaction with their teachers.
- Highly qualified teachers will teach your child whether it be through a well-researched vendor or our own district teachers.
- You and your child have a strong line of constant communication with the teacher. Teachers can provide immediate feedback, encouragement and support through class activities, emails, and other collaborative tools built into the classes.
- Your child’s teacher, and district leaders will actively support your child through the online experience. If your child has any issues, they are able to meet with a Wilson teacher, attend the Tutoring Center or work on campus in the Library or the WVA Office.
How can I support my online learner?
- Connect with your child’s “virtual” teacher and Mentor- Mrs. Deb Chestnut. Introduce yourself through an email message and provide contact information so the teacher can communicate with you throughout your child’s online experience.
- Establish a routine and a dedicated work area. Your child will experience more success in online classes when he participates daily and makes a time commitment to do so.
- Log in with a Parent Account. Your district can provide you with a Parent Account so that you can log in and check your student(s) work, grades, and upcoming assignments. You will receive weekly Progress Reports showing your students progress, missed or overdue assignments and the quality of work your student is submitting.
- Monitor your child’s progress, ask them how it is going and what they are doing. Ask them how it is different from a traditional classroom, how is it the same.
