Meeting Our Students’ Needs Virtually

Our goal for this fall is to continue moving students forward, keeping them on track for graduation and post-secondary-opportunities. We know distance learning might change the way our students learn, but we refuse to let it change the quality of what they learn. And it’s vital that our students feel connected with their peers and teachers no matter the distance.

To accomplish this, our teachers and administrators are going through professional development courses with the International Society for Technology in Education. To ensure we are ready to meet our students’ needs, DUSD is:

  • Creating communities in online classrooms
  • Assessing learning in online environments
  • Ensuring equity and inclusion in online learning
  • Designing exciting online learning experiences
  • Improving online communication between teachers and parents/students

Enroll From a Distance

Like our classrooms this fall, enrollment is now available online for your convenience.
