With Washington online public school, the state-approved curriculum and lessons are developed by education professionals and provided for free. Students complete daily lessons using the internet and interactive educational tools. Parents guide their students as Learning Coaches, usually by structuring the day, keeping them on task, providing help when needed, and communicating with teachers.
Students build relationships with Washington-certified online school teachers who partner with each family to create a personalized plan for a student’s successful learning. Teachers provide instruction in regularly scheduled online classroom sessions, grade student work, and provide ongoing feedback about performance.
Students also benefit from having a more flexible schedule, so parents can plan the day’s agenda around family time, personal interests, health needs, and athletics.
