Grades TK-3 Virtual Academy (Independent Studies)

For pupils in transitional kindergarten and grades 1 to 3, inclusive, independent study includes a plan to provide opportunities for daily synchronous instruction for all pupils throughout the school year.

  •  Synchronous instruction is defined as: Classroom-style instruction or designated small group or one-on-one instruction delivered in person, or in the form of internet or telephonic communications, and involving live two-way communication between the teacher and pupil.
  •  Independent Studies is an alternative to classroom instruction consistent with a school district's course of study and is not an alternative curriculum.
  •  Students receive daily synchronous instruction and may be assigned additional work to meet minimum daily instructional minutes via Zoom. 
  •  Synchronous instruction is defined as: Classroom-style instruction or designated small group or one-on-one instruction delivered via Zoom.
  •  Blended learning model is a mix of traditional instruction and curriculum delivered through instruction via digital and online media.
  •  Additional intervention time may be required at the teacher/parent’s request.

Legislation allowing for Distant Learning has expired.   Families interested in an alternative to face to face instruction, have the option of participating in Independent Study through Horizon Virtual Academy. 

In addition, students have the option to transfer back to their home school. Horizon will work to  transition pupils whose families wish to return to in-person instruction from independent study expeditiously, and, in no case, later than five instructional days.
