Learning Pathways

What is Connected Learning:


  • This is learning that takes place “online,” “remotely,” or “virtually.”  Moving forward, we are choosing to use the term Connected Learning because it better reflects how students will be engaging. Students are connected via their computers and the internet, but they are also connected to their teachers, peers and school community with regular communication and interaction. 

Learning Pathways

  • Option #1: Hybrid Learning (default)

    If you would like your student(s) to return to school for face-to-face learning once it is available, please choose our Hybrid Learning pathway.


    • Students enrolled in Option #1 will begin school with a Connected Learning model (see schedule) this fall and move to a Hybrid model when we can reopen schools safely and offer some face-to-face learning.

    • The Connected Learning elementary schedule begins Wednesday, September 2 for all elementary students enrolled in the Hybrid Learning Pathway. 

    • If no pathway selection is made, the student will be enrolled in Hybrid Learning.

    • Students who choose the Hybrid Learning pathway may choose to stay in Connected Learning for the rest of the year when we reopen schools. However, the student’s classroom teacher will most likely change.

     

    Virtual/Online options (2 pathways)

    Some of our families know now that they do not want to have their children return to school for face-to-face learning this school year, but home schooling is not a good fit either.


    We understand that our younger students need more support. We also understand that families have different needs. Some students need flexibility. Others need a more consistent, teacher-directed schedule with daily teacher and peer interaction. For that reason, we have developed TWO virtual options for our elementary (K-5) families. Click here for more details.
     

    Option #2: Connected Learning (virtual)


    • Students will begin and complete this school year in Connected Learning, even if we reopen schools and offer some face-to-face learning.

    • Students will have consistent daily interaction with their peers and teacher.

    • Students will have a predictable schedule and structure. See sample schedule here

     

    Option #3: Flexible Learning (virtual)

     

    This is the option for families who need flexibility for how and where their child completes his/her learning.

    • Students will begin and complete this school year in the Flexible Learning model even if we reopen schools and offer some face-to-face learning.

    • This option offers flexibility for families: Learning is done asynchronously with support from the teacher at a scheduled time that is convenient for the family.

    • Student has access to a teacher* for support, tutoring and connection.


    *Note - Teachers for Flexible Learning will be a certificated Bremerton School District teacher, but may not be a teacher from your child’s school.
     

    Option #4: Home Link (parent partnership / home school)

    Families who want to home school their child(ren) are welcome to enroll their student(s) in our Home Link parent partnership program (Option #4).
