Online elementary to be offered fall 2021
For those students and families who want to continue online learning at the elementary level next year, Anoka-Hennepin is developing a formal online elementary school which is set to begin operations in the fall of 2021. Program details, information sessions and applications for the school will be available this spring as plans are finalized.
Approval of the online elementary follows a detailed application process which is aligned with International Online Association for K-12 Learning (INACOL) standards and coordinated by the Minnesota Department of Education. The school will offer the Anoka-Hennepin curriculum, provide student support services and follow district policies for in-district transfers, open enrollment and student performance standards. Computers will be provided to students who need them and learning will be supported by an enhanced technology platform.
Families interested in exploring the online elementary for next school year should remain alert for additional information provided as soon as April of this year. The online elementary is set to begin in the 2021-22 school year and become an ongoing learning option. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or requests for additional information.
