USD 377 Atchison County virtual school program.
Through our virtual program, USD 377 can enroll online students in grades 6-12 to provide continuity of services and new learning opportunities.
Students seeking online junior high or high school education have often turned to outside companies in the past, because few school districts have been able to offer their own online programs. But by joining the new Virtual Partnership from Greenbush, USD 377 will be able to have its own online program. Students enrolled in the virtual school will be able to get a diploma from USD 377 just like students in the district’s traditional school buildings.
USD 377’s virtual school will be fully accredited, and it will be audited and approved by the Kansas State Department of Education just like any other school.
In addition to standard curriculum classes, the new virtual school will offer advanced classes such as “Green Design and Technology.”
