Distance Learning FAQ Page
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
Distance Learning is different than e-learning because it happens on the same day as the learning event. Our teachers are working behind the scenes to provide quality curriculum that bridges the gap for our students.

I DON'T HAVE WIFI... WHAT SHOULD I DO?
In an attempt to help our families who may not have access to the internet readily available, we are assisting by making our school buses temporary wifi hotspots! Families will be able to find the school bus at key locations each day. Once there, families can access the wifi for free to download their distance learning with their student using their Google Chromebooks. While we have not yet decided upon the key locations for these WIFI School Bus Hot Spots, we know that they will be most effective for many of you who are in more rural and remote areas. That is why we are working with County and City officials to allow us to park them at designated areas that are safe for families to visit. For those living near our school buildings, our school WIFI is available. Even outside of the school it can be accessed for free! Simply park in front of the building and connect to the school WIFI, then download your daily distance learning.
WE NEED TO WORK OFFLINE BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE WIFI IN OUR HOME:
We can completely understand that point of view! You are not alone, and many of our Whitko families are in similar situations. Our Technology department has provided this helpful document so your students can work on their distance learning offiline (without internet)
