Red globe with arrowAfter surveying Lakota families at the end of the school year, as well as through a community-wide ThoughtExchange, it is evident that some families may be uneasy about sending their children to school in the fall due to concerns about the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). To help meet the needs of families, the district will offer a 100-percent online K-12 education through the Lakota Virtual Learning Option this fall.

 

“We know that some of our families have concerns about having their child return to school in the fall,” said Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction Keith Koehne. “The Lakota Virtual Learning Option will give our families the opportunity to continue their education with Lakota curriculum from home.” Students enrolled in the virtual program will also have a dedicated Lakota teacher to check in with and ask questions.

 

Teachers from Lakota have teamed up with teachers from Hilliard City Schools to build curriculum modules for their districts. “Both Lakota and Hilliard (City) Schools are fortunate to have educators who see the value in collaborating and sharing best practices in a time where that type of innovative thinking is more important than ever,” Lakota Superintendent Matthew Miller said. 

 

Koehne will hold three information sessions via Zoom for families in the coming weeks:

  • July 2 at 9 a.m.
  • July 8 at 7 p.m.
  • July 15 at 7 p.m.

 

The Zoom information for the sessions can be found on our district calendar. Registration for the program will be open from June 30 through July 20. The information sessions will be recorded and shared on the district’s website, YouTube channel and Facebook page.
