Distance Learning Days

 

Tech Valley High School offers its innovative distance learning day program each school year. On distance learning days
(DLD), students stay home and log-into courses offered at TVHS.

The day promotes self-reliance and direction among students.

"Students meet online with their class teacher during the days and work collaboratively with their teams," said teacher Stacia Snow.

Class schedules for each day are distributed in advance to the students.

The innovative DLD program was launched at TVHS in 2009 to provide an opportunity for teachers to take part in staff development opportunities, while also providing students with an opportunity to show they are self-directed and can manage a certain amount of freedom while still completing assignments and lessons. The latter are vital skills in the 21st century workforce.
