Distance Learning Resources

Deerwood Academy

What is Distance Learning?

Distance learning is an educational process where students receive instruction through online classes, video recordings, video conferencing, or any other audio/visual technology medium. It enables people to receive education without having to be physically present in a classroom. Because of the extended closure of the APS district, we plan to do everything in our power to ensure that the scholars of Deerwood Academy continue to have access to course content and resources that facilitate learning. To that end, please click the links below to be directed to a plethora of resources and learning opportunities meant to engage, challenge and enrich your child(ren).
