Face-to-Face Learning- Students return for in-person instruction full time.
Hybrid Learning - Students will come to school with a hybrid of in-person and at-home learning. A mix of asynchronous and synchronous learning (see below).
Remote Blended Learning - K-5: 100% virtual learning with Gull Lake teachers and approved Gull Lake curriculum.
At-Home - Student will be at home on the days they are not at at school with hybrid plan.
Asynchronous learning - is distance learning (student and teacher in separate locations) in which the student and teacher are not connected in real time (not live). Asynchronous learning requires students to independently complete tasks and activities. Methods of asynchronous online learning include self-guided lesson modules, streaming video content, virtual libraries, posted lecture notes, and exchanges across discussion boards or social media platforms.
Synchronous learning - is distance learning (student and teacher in separate locations) in which the student and teacher remain in separate locations, but are electronically connected in real time/live. This involves the student and their instructor interacting in a specific virtual place, through a specific online medium, at a specific time.
