USD 207 Greenbush Virtual Option » Introduction Letter

Introduction Letter

Greetings from USD 207!

Thank you for your continued commitment and perseverance to your child’s education during the 2021-2022 school year. To support our Fort Leavenworth families, the Board of Education has approved offering a virtual school option for the 2021-2022 school year when enrolled through USD 207.  For returning families, please note that this virtual option is different from the remote option that was available last school year.

To offer this option, we recently partnered with Greenbush Kansas Education Service Center which specializes in providing virtual learning. The USD 207 Greenbush Virtual Option for K-9 students includes:

  • Curriculum for grades K-5 provided through Florida Virtual School (FLVS).
      • This curriculum meets local school district requirements and is aligned with Kansas College and Career Ready Standards.
  • Curriculum in grades 6-9 provided through Edgenuity.
      • This curriculum also meets local school district requirements and is aligned with Kansas College and Career Ready Standards.
  • Appropriately licensed teachers for their assigned grade levels and/or content areas. 
  • Academic Coaches assigned to each student and family for progress monitoring and regular contact.
  • An Individual Plan of Study for each student to ensure proper pacing, progress, and growth.
  • Chromebooks are available for student use upon request.

Delivery of and access to the Greenbush virtual curriculum will be primarily asynchronous (recorded and accessed by students and families through on-demand modules), with access to the curriculum available on a 24/7 basis. Additionally, synchronous (live) support via Zoom will be available at specified times weekly.

As you are considering this option for your child, it is important to note that a virtual learning model relies on families to guide and direct their child(ren) through the curriculum. Students will not attend a full daily schedule of live, teacher-led virtual instruction.

If you have any questions about the virtual options for 2021-2022, please email us at [email protected]

Sincerely,

Dr. Keith Mispagel
