New this year – we’re learning from our pandemic experience and working to offer choice in how students learn. There are three “modes” of learning for which we’re measuring student interest:

  • School- and classroom-based offered in-person, each day at school.
  • Hybrid/flex where classes meet at school 2-3 days per week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays) and online other days.
  • Online through SLP Schools Online where students can learn full-time – or by course - online and courses are primarily delivered asynchronously (on-demand).
