Family members are encouraged to take an active role in the dynamic learning community where students interact with teachers and classmates in real-time, online classrooms. Online students have the opportunity to meet classmates face-to-face at school-sponsored clubs, activities, and field trips throughout Michigan, and engage in lively discussions and project collaborations with other students online. Teachers are always available to provide support through telephone sessions and individualized online sessions.
