Bend-La Pine Schools Online
Our local Bend-La Pine Schools Online Program offers flexible, rigorous and supported online learning opportunities for children and families in our community.
Our elementary online program provides multiple levels of support and rigor for students, while also offering the flexibility that many families desire. Aall elementary school students will be placed into a virtual classroom with a local teacher, and peers in the same grade range. Classes will have several meetings a week; there will also be many options for additional engagement with teachers and peers through read aloud's, virtual clubs and in-person labs and learning experiences. In general, required class meetings and small groups will take place one or two mornings a week, with optional clubs in the afternoon and special activities as scheduled.
All of our elementary options use the K12 online learning platform. For sample lessons, you can visit this page: K-8 Program Sample Lessons
Please note that the enrollment links on the K12 pages frequently take you to other schools or districts, or even tuition-based programs. To register with Bend-La Pine Online and stay connected to our local teachers and community use the links from our website (right column) to initiate the registration process.
We have dedicated, local teachers assigned to K-5 students. These teachers team up with every new family to create a success plan and then oversee all facets of the instructional experience, while also supporting parents and/or learning coaches to facilitate progress through the daily lessons.
On average, you can expect to spend about 3-5 hours per day supporting your child's education, depending on the learning option you choose, number of classes your child is enrolled in and their grade level. Our teachers monitor progress, reach out to answer questions and are available via phone or email when families need support. Whether your child is enrolled in our independent or enhanced model, you can expect your teacher to check in on a regular basis, offer enrichment activities and help problem solve or support learning when questions arise.
