Q. Approx. how much time is spent per day with screen to screen interaction between students and their teacher.

A. Teachers will have office hours for students and parents to drop in to support student learning. Live, synchronous instruction for the virtual learning model that will be implemented at Capital Area K-12 will vary according to grade level.

Capital Area K-12 Online instructional model is the flipped classroom. For example, students might watch pre-recorded videos on Monday morning to review the lessons for the week. Students will then join the synchronous sessions with their classroom teachers throughout the week to engage in questions, activities and discussions regarding the assignments.

Q. When should we expect to get more information?  Once our enrollment has been accepted?

A. Enrolled students will receive information regarding device, materials and supplies distribution, school orientation and guidance counselor sessions the week of August 16th.

Q. Are there any activities for k-8? hendersonhugheshealthpartners@gmail.com

A. K-8 students will have opportunities to join activities, in-person, that are offered at our brick and mortar schools (i.e. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girls on the Run, Jr. Robotics, Robotics, Math-a-Rama, One World, and more).

Q. Will they be able to pick up food? Anonymous

A. Unsure at the moment. I will inquire about CAK12O students being able to pick-up lunch from a site.

Q. If the online instruction doesn't seem to be working for our students can we switch back to in person?

Q. How will my child be able to return to in person learning if I decide it's safe later or next school year. He is a Pattengill student can he return to his same school? He is now a 5th grader

A. We do understand that at times there may be a need to change schools during the year.  As a result, we provide an opportunity for families to apply for a school transfer at the end of the 1st semester.

Q. What if my child wants to play sports? What team will they be on?
