Welcome to the Online Program

We are pleased to welcome you and your student to the Port Townsend Online Program. The Online Program will provide a remote learning option for students who prefer to learn online during the 2021-2022 school year.

This newsletter will provide you some information about getting started online. Additional information will be available at the Virtual Family Night September 1 and sent via email afterwards for families who are unable to attend the virtual session.

We look forward to working with you and your student to make this year a success.

At the virtual Family Information Night you will meet program staff and learn about the Online Program. We will show you how to get started with Edgenuity and answer questions to help get families and students ready for the first day of online classes September 7.

Edgenuity Accounts

This year the Online Program will be using an online learning platform and curriculum called Edgenuity. Families and students will receive an email when their account is created. Classes will not be visible until the first day of school. At the Family Info Night on September 1, at 6pm we will give an overview of how to use the guardian and student login, including adding additional guardians. If you have multiple students the guardian login will allow you to view all of your students' progress in one place. Each student will have their own login.

High School Course Selection

High School students will be placed in classes that closely match their Port Townsend High School schedule. If additional information is needed or the student is coming from another district school staff will reach out to you. If changes are needed after enrollment reach out to your conferencing Port Townsend School District Teacher.
