• Elementary Virtual Pathway

    Edina Elementary Continuous Progress (CP) Virtual Pathway is a learning setting where kindergarten through 6th grade classrooms are grouped in multi-age configurations depending on student need and enrollment.

    Standards Aligned

    Our Virtual Pathway is aligned to the Minnesota State Standards and offers a variety of ways to meet those standards. Students will have guided instruction in all core content areas, including specials (art, music and physical education).

    Program Features

    Developmentally, we know it is important for elementary-age students to have real time access to instruction. We also know that developing independence is one of the features of an online experience. The Edina Virtual Pathway relies on a combination of in-person and independent work.
