Enrollment Options for 2021-22
- Option One: Attend Neighborhood School Fully In-Person, Everyday
We look forward to beginning the new school year with our students fully on-site, every day, for their learning experience. With the changed safety protocol of physical distancing (3 feet) by the Oregon Health Authority, all WLWV schools will begin the 2021-2022 school year with five, full days of in-person instruction typical of past years. Students who choose this option can expect a “normal” model of on-site learning.
Optional Blended Learning Courses, G. 9 - 12
We have learned a great deal this year about how a successful format of remote learning can benefit many students. Therefore, we plan to offer several courses in a Blended Learning format (remote and in-person learning) for interested high school students, next year and beyond. Students will have the option to take 1-2 courses online taught by a WLWV teacher, in selected subject areas, while still enrolled in their other courses on-site. Blended Learning courses may vary in their set up. Some may be more structured for whole class participation, occasional on-site labs or check-ins with aligned course pacing. Other classes may be less structured, more individualized, and students will determine their own pace towards completion of their course. Students taking a Blended Learning course can expect to engage in some learning in-person at school and some learning remotely. Students/families can view the Blended Learning options offered at their school when they work with their school on “forecasting” for next year.
- Option Two: Enroll in WLWV K12 Online Academy (WKOA) - Grades K-12
For the 2021-2022 school year, the District will continue offering a fully online, remote learning option for students who reside in the district (formerly WKOP). The online program will continue to utilize the K12 Stride (formerly FuelEd) digital curriculum for academic content.
The structure of WKOA will be set up differently than it was during the pandemic. A WLWV teacher will be assigned to each student/family to assist with creating a learning plan, maintain connection to school and activities, and assist with any technical or academic concerns. However, the teacher will not have daily contact with the student or provide direct instruction. Instead, the parent/guardian will be the student’s main learning coach as the student progresses through the K12 Stride curriculum. Because we anticipate a much smaller enrollment in this program next year, it is likely that a WLWV teacher will be assigned to students in multiple grade levels across multiple schools.
Because students will still be enrolled in their neighborhood school, WKOA students will continue to receive support from our Special Education and English Language Development departments for any specialized instruction needs. WKOA students will continue to have access to all activities, athletics, clubs, meal service and learning labs offered at their home school. Visit our WKOA website for more information about the program.
