What is Kodiak Remote Learning?
Kodiak Remote Learning (KRL) is a 2020-2021 educational option provided to families by KIBSD in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a uniform commitment of family, a program coach, the student and KRL teacher(s), KRL provides a virtual learning environment where students can experience success in attaining academic knowledge, skills and age-appropriate social-emotional learning. This program was not designed to substitute or replace the depth of education and offerings provided in the traditional brick and mortar setting.
What does Kodiak Remote Learning look like?
KRL utilizes an interactive blended learning model delivered through live value-added online instruction (also known as synchronous learning) and the completion of digital curriculum. The term “value-added” refers to intentional instruction of content, above and beyond the digital curriculum, delivered in a way that cultivates engagement and stimulates students’ curiosity and passion for deeper learning. Tutoring sessions will be required for individual students if it is deemed necessary for their success in the virtual program and may be requested by the teacher, student and/or parent.
