Elementary Virtual Program
Elementary students may choose to attend the WFPS Virtual Program by trimester* or for the full year. Students will be assigned a WFPS Virtual Program teacher and will receive an internet compatible device. Progress grades will be communicated at the regularly scheduled grading periods. Students will receive support services such as special education, GATE, and English Language services in an online learning environment. They will also receive direct instruction using the WFPS guaranteed and viable curriculum with the opportunity to access their teachers during office hours.
*First trimester ends November 24, 2020; second trimester ends February 26, 2021
An outline of what to expect each week for asynchronous work is shown in the document below. When the schedule says “Whole Group” the entire class will be scheduled to be online live (synchronous) with the teacher. Each week, your child will engage in one small group for math, one for writing, and two for reading. You will see one to three groups listed on the schedule, however your child will only be invited for their specific time (synchronous). This smaller group time allows our classroom teachers to tailor the instruction to the needs of the students. You will also see a great deal of “flexible” (asynchronous) time when your student is not in a particular small group, breaks between whole groups, etc. when your student can work on the assignments and activities they have been provided.
In addition to a grade level teacher, students will have a teacher for art, music, PE and health.
