Online options for 2021-2022
Posted on 04/26/2021

Dear D51 Families, 


As we end the 2020-2021 school year, we are looking at the online options available to families through District 51. The D51 Online program was created last fall in response to the ongoing pandemic, to allow students to continue their education online instead of returning to in-person school. Many families are interested in continuing with an online option, and the D51 Board of Education has decided to merge D51 Online with Grand River Academy starting with the 2021-2022 school year. The combination of the two will be called Grand River Academy going forward.


In the 2021-2022 school year, Grand River Academy will offer two options: 

  1. Blended: Students will attend in-person classes on the Grand River Academy campus for one day a week to receive teacher support, and participate in online school for the remaining four days each week. *Elementary grades are only available in the blended option. 

  2. Online: Students will attend school online all five days and participate in weekly check-ins for each class through Google Meet. This option is not available for elementary students. 


Both options will be staffed by local, state certified, D51 teachers. In the blended option, your student will receive face-to-face instruction and support as part of their regular schedule. Online students will have the option to request face-to-face instruction if needed. Students will have the opportunity to come in to meet with their teachers live for support as well as participate in Friday afternoon clubs.  Elementary will use K-12 curriculum, and middle and high school will continue with Odysseyware. 

 

We are asking families to carefully consider these options when deciding on schooling for next year. If you are interested in either of the Grand River Academy options (blended or all-online), please fill out this enrollment form. Please keep in mind that seats are limited in both options, and filling out the form does not necessarily guarantee you a spot.  Middle school and high school “blended” classes are filled to capacity at this time, however,  the “online” option is still available at both levels. 

 

Students currently enrolled in Grand River Academy do not need to reapply. D51 Online students interested in continuing with an online option will need to reapply. 

Please note that any enrollment requests submitted after May 21, 2021 will be reviewed at the end of July.
