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. Students follow a daily schedule that is similar to in-person school.
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 schoolwork and ensuring the child is staying on track.
- Support students with the daily schedule including 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.
