Option 1: Supplemental Online Courses

Choose from a wide selection of core courses, in addition to many enriched course offerings. Such options include the possibility of earning college credit through Project Lead the Way (PLTW), Advanced Placement (AP), or College Level Examination Programs (CLEP).

Option 2: Full Time Online

Edina Virtual Pathway offers a comprehensive online program for students who wish to receive all of their high school courses in an online format. Students enrolled in EVP will receive a high quality learning experience, work with highly qualified and caring teachers, and access to a wide range of courses to meet all district graduation requirements, preparing them to realize their full potential and thrive.

The creation of EVP stems from the desire of our students and families for a high quality digital learning pathway which offers students more flexibility while still delivering the high levels of rigor and excellence that our in-person programming does.

Students in the Edina Virtual Pathway will have access to all courses required to meet Edina graduation requirements, and more! A typical course load for students is six sections. Online sections of these courses may be offered based on student interest and enrollment numbers. Students must earn 43 semester credits in grades 9-12 in order to qualify for graduation.

Student Day/Sample Schedule

High School Learner

Edina Online Pathway students will have an independent, flexible learning experience, with course content delivered in an asynchronous format. Our counseling staff will meet with each student to design a four-year plan that meets the students learning goals. Below is a sample course load for a typical student, as well as some tips to keep in mind.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT
Edina High School offers an array of academic supports and interventions. These are also available to online learners. 

STUDENT SUPPORT
EVP students have access to the same mental and chemical health support as in-person students at EHS.

MENTAL HEALTH

EHS partners with Fraser to provide an on-site licensed therapist five days per week. Appointments are held during the school day and can be held virtually.

This service is provided by referral only and is billed through family insurance. Appointments at no cost are available to families without insurance who meet income requirements.

 

CHEMICAL HEALTH

EHS partners with Relate Counseling Center to provide an on-site licensed alcohol and drug counselor two days per week. Appointments are held during the school day and can be held virtually.

ADVISORY
Each EVP student will be assigned to an advisor. Their advisor will assist students in completing and maintaining their Learner Story, a tool designed for the student to share information about their goals, interests and learning preferences.

ATTENDANCE
EHS Online teachers will track student attendance based on course engagement and completion of daily work.

Online Success Workshop

Before the start of the school year, there will be a half-day meeting/camp. EVP students who will be full-time online, and their parents, will meet with their teachers, media specialists and members of the Edina Public School instructional technology team to discuss strategies for success in the online format. Students will be invited to complete a rubric similar to the Michigan Online Learner Readiness Rubric to help us understand the strengths of each student and find areas where students may need additional support to be successful.

The content for this workshop will be housed in a module of Schoology, our learning management system. It will be accessible to parents and students regardless of when they join Edina Public Schools. Components of this content will include:

  • Understanding your teacher’s Schoology page

  • Overview of digital tools in Edina and how to access them

  • Communication between home and school in a digital environment

  • Accessing resources (such as college and career counseling, mental health support, academic support, and calendar information) 

  • Introduction of digital learning platforms for online students

  • Who to contact for parents and students

In addition, our media specialists and tech paras provide support to students and are currently collaborating with our English Language Arts Department to incorporate digital citizenship lessons into both advisory curriculum and the updated English language arts curriculum, currently under development.

Additional Tech Support
Edina’s District Media and Technology Services provides the best effort to solve technical issues for all stakeholders. Staff are available from 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM, either via email support@edinaschools.org or phone, (952) 848-4915. Parents can also get support with Portal issues at parent.portal@edinaschools.org.
