Virtual Learning at North Hills

Virtual Learning at North Hills

2021-22

Grades 1-6
Facilitated asynchronously by North Hills teachers using Pearson Connexus curriculum.

Grades 7-12
Taught asynchronously by North Hills teachers using the district's curriculum.

Please note: The 2021-22 virtual model looks a lot different than our virtual model did last year. Virtual Learning for elementary students is asynchronous. Virtual elementary students will not be assigned a seat in a North Hills classroom and there will not be an option to join North Hills teacher classrooms remotely. Classes will not be recorded or streamed live.

As with all courses, offerings will be based on student interest and some courses may not be offered in the virtual setting. If a course is not offered virtually, students will have the option to attend in-person for that specific course.

2021-22 Enrollment

Students in grades 6-12 had the option to select virtual courses as they registered for their 2021-22 classes.

Students in grades 1-5 must enroll by contacting Dr. Beth Williams' office at [email protected] or 412-318-1017 no later than 12 p.m. on Aug. 11. This is an extended deadline following the unveiling of NHSD's health and safety plan for the 2021-22 school year.

About Virtual Learning

Any student in grades 1-12 can choose to enroll in Virtual learning at North Hills and enrollment can be full-time or part-time.

Virtual learning students who reside in the North Hills School District enjoy access to the same resources as traditional students. They may attend athletic and social events, compete in athletics, and participate in the more than 50 clubs and activities offered at the middle and high schools.

Virtual learning students graduate from North Hills as traditional students, participate in commencement and receive a North Hills School District diploma. Virtual learning students must meet the same graduation requirements as students who attend the district’s brick-and-mortar schools. Complete graduation requirements can be found in the high school student handbook.

Students interested in enrolling in Virtual learning at North Hills should schedule an appointment with their school counselor to determine if online learning is right for them. Questions can also be directed to Assistant Superintendent Dr. Beth Williams or your building principal.
