Amount of Daily Student Work

Your student should be working on their courses at least 4-5 hours per weekday (they can chunk this anyway they would like).  If they are behind schedule, they may need to work on the weekends or vacations.  They can work with their teacher mentor and/or special education teacher to create a plan of progress. 

Tip: Try using the Course Map/Course Report feature in each of your courses to help you stay on track (this is the page with all of the due dates)

Family Schoology Group

To support our Northshore Virtual Program community, we are creating a family Schoology group. To do so, we need one parent/guardian volunteer with a student in K-5 and one in 6-12. If you are interested in helping to lead the Northshore Virtual Program Family Schoology Group, email nvp@nsd.org. If we have multiple volunteers, we will choose based on the order we receive the interest.
