Dear Bulldog Families,


Below is a link to an online form where you may express your desire for your child(ren) to Return to Learn with us in a virtual environment. Please note, you must enroll your child(ren) through Parent Portal prior to filling out the online learning interest form. If you are choosing seated classes for your child(ren), and have already completed the enrollment process, there is nothing more you need to do at this time.


We understand that you may be waiting to view our full Return to Learn plan prior to making your decision. The option to choose virtual learning will remain open through the first week of August, however, we would appreciate as many advanced selections as possible to assist us in our planning efforts. If your child receives Special Education services from the district and you are considering online learning, please fill out this form and a member of your child’s planning team will contact you to discuss considerations specific to their needs.


Those who choose virtual learning will do so through programs approved through the Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Students enrolled in grades K-6 will be using Acellus from the American Academy of Science, and students enrolled in grades 7-12 will use Edmentum, which won the 2019 Award of Excellence from Tech & Learning Journal. These learning management systems will have full district oversight and direction. Online classes will be fully aligned with the Missouri Learning Standards and students will receive a grade based on their success in completing their coursework. The amount of school work will be comparable to that of a seated class within a regular school day. If your child does not have access to a computer or internet at home, please indicate this on the form and a member of our staff will contact you. 


Our full plan is scheduled to be shared with you pending approval by the Board of Education at the meeting July 30th. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we finalize our plans to reconnect with your children in a few short weeks. 


Any questions regarding the online learning options for your child may be directed to webmaster@rolla31.org
