Summer Online Education

Students at Hillcrest Elementary in North Bend were given the option to try out an online learning program last summer. Teachers hoped that the program would help prevent the typical regression that many students experience over the many months of summer vacation. The program offered rewards — like offering $20 and an ice cream party for the students that used the program the most over the summer.

Administrators say the program was a success, and now they’re trying to expand it for use during the school year. But they’re still working out some of the kinks, including how to make sure that students without reliable internet access don’t get left out.

Does your student’s education include an online component? Has your child ever had a problem accessing the internet to complete an assignment?
