  • (New 7/23) If students have to be actively engaged in class during remote learning, is it possible to do it using Zoom so teachers see them? Students could also observe the classroom, participate in discussions and ask questions.

  • (New 7/23) How does Option #2, iFlagler Virtual, compare to Option #3, Remote Live?
    Virtual learning works for students who are independent learners who can keep themselves on pace by working on lessons without teacher intervention every day. Students need to schedule their own time. Strong reading skills are needed.

    Remote learning is better for learners who need daily teacher guidance and monitoring. These students will be on a schedule that teachers assign them. They will be working on their classes during regular school hours every day with constant teacher guidance and interaction. The amount of parental monitoring will vary depending on each student.

  • Will students be able to attend classes on campus?
    Remote students are receiving their classroom instruction remotely 5 days a week. Students will, however, be able to participate in specific activities or receive identified services on campus if needed through arrangements with school-based administration.

  • If a student needs to attend classes on campus, will transportation be provided?
    Students who qualify for transportation services will be able to ride the morning and/or afternoon bus depending on their schedule.

  • If students decide that the remote learning option is not working, will they be able to return to traditional school?
    The district expectation is that students remain in their chosen option for the semester so that we can be sure to adequately staff each option. Extenuating circumstances will be considered on an individual basis.

  • Will the expectation be that students are online all day?
    Students will be expected to follow their traditional school day schedule.

  • If my student chooses the remote learning option will a district device still be issued to them?
    Yes.
