Edina Virtual Pathway students in grades 9-12 will have an independent, flexible learning experience, with course content delivered in an asynchronous format, meaning students complete their daily work independently, on their own schedule. Teachers will be available during office hours and by appointment.
Classes are taught through online materials, such as screencasts, readings, and assignments, which students complete each day at their convenience. Courses do not meet at a specific time and are not live. Each week’s work is due at the end of the week (Sunday night) for attendance purposes and full credit. While there is flexibility within the week for students to set their own schedules, courses are not independent studies and are not self-paced.
There are a variety of resources available to students for help in their courses. Teachers answer questions through email and are available for virtual one-on-one meetings by appointment. Edina Virtual Pathway personnel are also available to answer questions and provide technical support by email and phone during regular school hours. Fully online students are invited to schedule weekly check-ins with an educator via Google Meet and can even come into the Edina Virtual Pathway office for in-person help.
