SSSD Online Options - Edgenuity 2021-22 - updated 8-11-21

 

Steamboat Springs School District recognizes that due to the COVID-19 global crisis, families may wish to explore an online alternative to in-person school. We strongly encourage families to consider in-person learning as we believe this is the best for most kids from a social, emotional, and educational standpoint. However, knowing that individual circumstances may require virtual learning, SSSD is providing an online option for all grade levels for the first semester of school. We will reevaluate Edgenuity options for the second semester in November. The following information explains the K-12th grade options for online-only education. (*Information in this document is subject to change as we receive new information from state and local health officials)

K-12 Online Option - Edgenuity

  • K-12 grade students/parents that wish to opt into the online-only option for the first semester of the  21-22 SY will first need to be registered in their appropriate district school.

  • Once enrolled, they will need to fill out the Online-Only Registration form by Thursday, Aug 19th. To register for online-only, click here.

  • K-12 students enrolled in the Online-Only option will be using the Edgenuity Learning Management System exclusively to facilitate their learning. 

  • Edgenuity’s fully online curriculum will be taught by Edgenuity’s highly qualified, state-certified virtual instructors. 

  • The K-12 Online-Only option will be managed by a trained SSSD on-site mentor that will be in constant communication with families throughout the school year. 

  • Once students begin with Edgenuity, if it is determined that the Online-Only option is not a good fit, families will have a ten (10) day opt-out period. Once the 10 day period has elapsed, families will be locked into the online option for the remainder of the current semester. 

  • To succeed in the online only program, students need to be self-motivated, good time managers, strong communicators , and have parent support and supervision.  Students who participate in the 100% online learning program will still be a part of the SSSD community,  have access to counselors, and be able to participate in school activities, athletics, and special events. 

  • Students who struggle academically with online learning will be encouraged to return to in-person learning.
