Distance Learning | At-Home Instruction

distance learning logo
Seminole ISD is committed to delivering the highest level of education to our students. Our staff takes pride in providing social-emotional and academic support for all students. 
Students enrolled in Distance Learning will participate in five full school days that will consist of daily assignments and checks for understanding. Instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous through Google Classroom and Google Meets. Distance Learning will not be the same type of virtual instruction provided during the 2020 Spring School Closure. The requirements for Distance Learning are significantly more demanding on a student's daily participation and completion of work at home, as compared to this past spring.

Distance Learning at a Glance

  • All learning will take place at home
  • Higher expectations of student performance than Spring 2020

Return to In-Person Learning | Notification Deadlines

Once the virtual option is chosen, the student must remain with that option until the end of that six-week grading period. Parents must inform the campus of the student’s return to in-person attendance by the deadlines listed below. The form can be obtained from your campus.

Changing options frequently may have a negative impact on a student’s ability to receive credit for the course as well as their academic success.
