Distance Learning

Distance Learning classes are designed for adult students who are unable to attend a regularly scheduled Adult Education class Monday through Friday. Classes are held primarily online using internet activities with workbook practice and direct instruction. An online computer is not required to attend Distance Learning classes as students may use the lab during office hours. Students work independently using virtual and internet lessons. Students meet weekly with an assigned teacher to review lessons, receive new lessons, and set goals as needed.

The Distance Learning office is open Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. and Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

Appointments are required.
