    Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, Kent School District (KSD) will offer a new sustainable online school that expands our existing non-traditional choice school and programming options for students in grades 6-12. While many of the details are still being designed, this new learning experience will be different than the remote and hybrid learning models previously offered and long withstand the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    Designing for Student Experience & Success 

    At the virtual school, we envision students as the drivers of their learning experience and have designed this program around them. We will also partner with families, connecting them with school and community-based resources to support student success together. Explore our school model to learn more about our decidedly flexible option.

    At this point, our school model is iterative based on community input and feedback. We are actively engaging with numerous stakeholder groups in a variety of ways. The design may evolve as we reflect the ideas of our students, families, staff, labor partners, and the larger KSD community.
