How does Haverford Online Work for Elementary, Middle, and High School?
Students at the elementary level will receive a combination of live, interactive and recorded, self-paced instruction. Teachers may also meet with students in small groups or one-on-one throughout the week.
Elementary students will need support from an adult at home to establish the structure and guidance a younger student needs to establish and manage a daily routine.
An adult at home can expect to:
- Devote several hours each day to overseeing (not teaching) the child’s school work and ensuring the child is staying on track.
- Set a daily schedule with varied activities and breaks.
- Communicate frequently with the child’s teacher.
- Assist with monitoring student progress and comprehension
The role of an adult at home in a virtual learning program is consistent across all cyber programs and is considered a best practice in making virtual learning successful at the elementary level.
Middle and High School
The middle and high school Haverford Online program will include a mix of synchronous and asynchronous teaching, but will include more recorded, flexible work than the elementary program.
As students become more independent, an adult at home can help to support a student with setting schedules and goals. They will need to verify that lessons and assignments are completed, and may need to communicate with teachers.
