SLP Online - grades K-6

SLP Schools Online Elementary is Spring Lake Park Schools’ full-time distance learning option for students in grades K-6. Through strong partnership between home and school, students experience learning specific to their individual strengths, interests and needs covering the same concepts as their in-school peers but tailored to them in an online, at-home environment. 

What's different about this program

Watch: 2022-23 School Year Overview

Principal on assignment Kim Fehringer and two online teachers talk about what SLP Online Elementary will look like for the 2022-2023 school year. 

Is this a good fit for your student?

  • Does the student have effective communication skills – seek support when needed and practice self-advocacy?
  • Does the student have the skills to work independently (persistence, self-motivation, time management)?
  • Is the student willing to engage with the learning in a meaningful way?
  • Does the student understand the engagement expectations?
  • Is the student comfortable navigating technology and willing to learn about and practice digital citizenship?

Is this a good fit for your family?

  • Does your family have an adult to serve as the at-home learning coach?
  • Does the at-home learning coach understand the role and engagement expectations?
  • Is there a designated learning space in the home that is comfortable, reasonably quiet, and free of distraction?
  • Does the learning space have access to high speed, reliable internet?
  • Is the at-home learning coach comfortable navigating technology and willing to attend a technology orientation?
