SOUTH SHORE VIRTUAL/ONLINE PROGRAM

for Grades 6-12,  no cost for South Shore District students

South Shore is partnered with Wisconsin Virtual School (CESA #9) to offer virtual/online program for students who live in the South Shore District, including students who are currently home-schooled. An advantage is the wide variety of classes that are offered. An online virtual program offers families the flexibility to access the classes 24 hours a day, 7 days per week and does not restrict students to a specific geographic location, as the classes can be accessed anywhere there is an internet connection. Students participating in this program will be provided the technology to access the classes, and will be eligible to participate in sports and other co-curricular activities if the meet the criteria. The district will provide a local education guide to help the students through the classes as well.

Any interested parents or students who would like to try the virtual/online program may contact the school office for more information and application materials.
