The safety of our students and staff is paramount as we make decisions about how to educate students this fall. District leaders and educators are in the process of finalizing our Continuous Learning 2.0 plan which includes a three-prong approach based on health and safety and the primary considerations developed by the community workgroup. More at www.msd25.org.
Continuous Learning 2.0 Marysville School District will start the year with at-home learning (distance learning), then, when safe to do so, move to a hybrid model (part in-person, part at-home learning), and eventually return to 100% in-person learning. A part of the Continuous Learning 2.0 model includes an option for 100% online instruction. We are providing an opportunity for parents and guardians to enroll their child in a free online learning program called “Marysville Online”.
Marysville Online is an all-inclusive school experience that provides core content courses and elective courses. Students will have an assigned schedule but can access their courses online anytime, from anywhere they have an internet connection. Learning occurs through live and recorded video lessons completely online — monitored by Marysville teachers. This program is designed to work best when there is an adult in the home who can guide and partner with their child in their learning process.
Marysville Online serves kindergarten through 12th grade learners and features an emphasis on personalized learning experiences that align to each student’s growth along a path toward graduation.
Registration for Marysville Online will open on August 12 at noon.
There will be no cap on the number of “seats”.
Priority enrollment in Marysville Online will be made for students registered by August 21 so our district can meet its obligations and assign Marysville teachers to support the number of students who register.
Marysville Online students will remain in the online option when it is determined that it is safe to return to face-to-face learning.
Electives and courses offered through Marysville Online will support promotion and graduation but may vary from the electives and courses available at other schools.
One registration form is required for each student.
How is Marysville Online different from Remote (Distance) Learning outlined in the Continuous Learning 2.0 Plan? Marysville Online is housed fully online and is grounded in personalized learning plans that align to each student’s progress.
Remote (distance) learning (part of the Continuous Learning model) involves Marysville teachers interacting with their class or classes of students partly online and partly through other contacts during the week and students working on their own to complete assignments. When health authorities allow students to return to school, students in remote learning will transition to a hybrid model with students attending part in-person, part at-home learning on a rotating schedule. When the remote learning students move to a hybrid model, students enrolled in Marysville Online will continue with their full-time online program.
Can I switch my children back to their home school if Marysville Online is not a good fit? Students enrolled in Marysville Online must complete the entire trimester (elementary) or semester (secondary) of learning. At the end of that time, if a parent wants to return their child to their previously assigned school, including choice schools, Marysville Online staff will support the student and family in the transfer/enrollment process.
If you are interested in your child(ren) participating in the Marysville Online option, please complete the registration form as soon as possible and no later than August 21, 2020. One form is required for each child.
