DCS has chosen Edgenuity for its virtual program. Edgenuity is a leading provider of K-12 online learning solutions. Edgenuity provides courses aligned with the Alabama Course of Study Standards and offers individualized learning paths. The Edgenuity team will work with our district team to provide an optimal learning experience for all students enrolled in the DCS Virtual Program. DCS teachers will monitor students’ progress and communicate as needed. This model works well for students who desire flexible hours and self-paced learning.
What Is The Difference Between Remote Learning And The Virtual Program?
Remote Learning will include interaction with a DCS teacher via an online video platform (synchronous instruction). Students will be able to interact with each other and engage in real-time learning. Students will receive feedback and grading in Google Classroom. They will also have access to practice materials in the Edgenuity platform.
Students enrolled in the Virtual Program will work with prerecorded video instruction (asynchronous instruction). They will complete assignments and receive grading feedback housed within the Edgenuity platform. Both groups will receive weekly communication from assigned teachers. Set office hours will allow students and parents to contact teachers for additional help as needed.
