What is the Daily Time Commitment by Grade?
While students have access to their online school account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, students are required to attend school following the district calendar during regular school hours - approximately 9:00-3:30 Monday-Friday when teachers are available to support their learning. Teachers set the times for online live instructional sessions and students are required to attend these sessions which are easy to access directly from the student calendar in the online school. Parents should help their child(ren) create a personalized schedule to complete online lessons and offline work that works best for them around those live sessions. Consider completing subjects that may be more challenging early in the day when the student is fresh. Saving art projects, hands-on activities, and science experiments for later in the afternoon may work well for some students. In this way, families can personalize the daily learning for each student, plan breaks in the day, and determine where the learning happens so long as an internet connection is available. Explore A Day in the Life for a behind-the-scenes look at how it works.
The amount of time spent in online lessons live instructional sessions, and completing work offline varies based on the grade level of the student.
