Distance Learning Academy Electives

Please Complete Elective Registration

Dear Students and Families,

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as the Distance Learning Academy and High School elective teachers create a comprehensive online course offering for your student. The Google Form linked HERE, is for students in grades 9-12. Please follow the directions and complete by Thursday, September 10th at 3:00 P.M. The Distance Learning Academy administrative office will process the requests. Students should expect to start their electives during the week of September 14th.


**A setting change to the Google Form was made allowing families to bypass the permission request** Sorry for the inconvenience.


Prior to starting the electives, DLA students should be working in their core classes and possibly working ahead in those subjects.



Addendum to the previous message


Students in grades 6-8 will also have the opportunity to participate in electives virtual. In order to provide continuity of services between the Middle School and the Distance Learning Academy, we will be offering and assigning the following electives.

  • Art
  • Music Appreciation
  • Physical Education
  • Health

The Distance Learning Academy staff continuously monitor student growth and partner with students for all students to be challenged so that they can reach their full potential. Teachers may add in enrichment activities during the school year.

Reminder - Creating your Classroom and Routine! - Homework assignment #1

Today and tomorrow please take time as a family to create your classroom at home. It is highly recommended that your classroom NOT be the same place as you sleep. It is also strongly encouraged that you create a daily schedule and routine and post this on the fridge or close to your classroom space. There will be a lot of temptations that will pull you from your coursework. The more we stick to the routine the less likely the temptation will take control.

Logging in to your courses

I will be sending the login information to your courses tomorrow. If you do not see the course you believe you registered for, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can correct the issue. The first full day of school will occur on Thursday!

Thank you again for partnering with the Distance Learning Academy
