eLearning

Message from Dr. Greg Schwab, Assistant Superintendent

In light of our current budget circumstances, we are adjusting our approach to Edmonds eLearning Academy enrollment for the 2024-25 academic year. Starting in the fall, students attending our neighborhood high schools will no longer have the option to enroll in eLearning courses on a part-time basis. eLearning will continue to serve full-time students and in addition, will provide credit recovery courses for any students in Edmonds School District.

We recognize this adjustment may raise concerns among our students and families. To ensure transparency and understanding, we want to share why these decisions have been made. Because of the way the state funds our school district, by eliminating part-time eLearning courses, the district will receive an additional estimated $200,000 by having students take these courses at their neighborhood school. 

Furthermore, the practice of part-time enrollment in eLearning has presented logistical challenges at our neighborhood high schools. Specifically, it has become increasingly difficult to provide adequate supervision for students in these courses who have unscheduled gaps in their day.

We understand the impact this may have and encourage any student or family with concerns to reach out to their school counselor for guidance and support.
