Accessing Coursework

AE logo
Middle and high school students will use Schoology to access coursework while participating in digital/distance learning. Coursework may consist of assignments in Edmentum as well as ones created by individual teachers. Teachers may send Zoom meeting links to connect with students. Students should log in to the student portal/Clever in order to access both Schoology and Edmentum.

Daily Schedules

schedules
Similar to in-person instruction, teachers will communicate more information about their daily schedules, academic expectations and grading during the first week of school. Students can access and complete assignments at their own pace, but live teacher support will only be available during the class time listed on a student's schedule. Students are more likely to thrive with a predictable and consistent schedule.

Meals for Digital Learning Students

meal service

The Walton County School District is pleased to offer weekly meal service to WCSD digital/distance learners. Families are able to pre-order weekly meals to pick up on Tuesdays between 9-10 a.m. 

  • Weekly meal service includes breakfast & lunch for school days only.  
  • Weekly meal options are published online
  • Sign-ups are Monday-Thursday for the following Tuesday pick up.
  • Meal pickups occur between 9-10 a.m. on Tuesdays.
  • Pickup locations are specific to each school campus. Families will be notified of the school's pickup location.
  • Normally meal pickups will be at the student's home school location, but School Nutrition will make every effort to have one meal pickup site for families with children at multiple schools. These requests will be coordinated on a case-by-case basis.
  • Students do not have to be with the driver to pick up meals.
  • Under the new USDA program, all meals will be free until Dec. 31 or funding is exhausted.

School Supplies

supplies
Students must have a device and reliable internet access. Paper and writing utensils are suggested. Individual teachers will make recommendations on additional supplies needed once school starts. The supplies needed for digital/distance learning will be minimal. If you are in need of a device, please contact the school your child would attend in person.
