Our K-6 Program
Our K-6 Program has been optimized to balance the academic and social emotional needs of younger learners with the guidelines for appropriate screen and virtual learning time set out by the National Standards for Quality Online Courses.
Students will have regular synchronous lessons in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. In addition, they will be a part of a class structure with a teacher and consistent classmates. Typically all synchronous virtual lessons are taught in ½ of a day, leaving plenty of flexible time for students who need it. Students in the our program have approximately 4.5 hours of synchronous virtual instruction each day. Extended Learning Program, English Language Learning and interventions can increase this time.
The elementary day in for ICCSD Online consists of a series of virtual classes of large group and small group learning. Take a look at the current school year's time schedule for to see what a typical day looks like.
Parent conferences are held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. The purpose of these conferences is to report how your student is progressing in academic content and in their social development. A student's end-of-the-year report is emailed on the last day of classes. The report gives input for all curricular areas and social development. Throughout the year parents and teachers also informally exchange information regarding childrens’ work and progress. Open communication between parents and teachers is encouraged.
