About DLA

From the Principal

  • The Distance Learning Academy (DLA) is a fully virtual learning model designed to provide students with social-emotional connections to peers and educators while engaging in grade level curriculum. Although teaching and learning completely online is not typical, the staff of DLA are finding ways to connect with each student and family in meaningful ways. They are working tirelessly to establish an online environment that supports the learning and growth of each student. 

    This program consists of over 1200 students from the fifteen elementary schools. In the DLA model teachers follow the recommended district curriculum, including a rich social emotional program. With this new learning model comes many new strategies, apps and best practices to discover as we work in partnership with families to provide an engaging and academically rich year.

    The DLA website is created as a resource for teachers and families. Here you will find information on staffing, family communications and resources for you and your students. 

    We appreciate your ongoing support of the dedicated teaching staff and this learning model.
