Distance Learning Classes

View our Fabulous Classes Below

Our distance learning classes are taught by our fabulous teachers in a way that is effective and engaging. With this great at-home option, your child will get complete instruction without sitting at the computer all day!

Initial, weekly instruction is done through a video. Then classmates and teachers connect through a live, virtual session. Homework is relevant to each week’s lesson & hands-on!

Each Week: Pre-recorded lessons are available in Orbund

Wednesdays/Thursdays: Live class sessions with teachers through Google Meet

How Distance Learning Works:

  • New pre-recorded lessons are available each week. These recordings must be watched before the Google Meet with the teacher each week.
  • All homework will be posted in our student information system, Orbund, on Monday.
    • Homework is hands-on, relevant and engaging to help your child or teen understand the concepts being taught. The homework will not be “busy work”. (For example, science classes will include experiments.)
    • A weekly online 5-question assignment will be required for every class (referred to as Fast Five Feedbacks).
  • Each class will have a mid-week live class session through Google Meet on either Wednesday or Thursday. During the live class session teachers will be able to dive into a deeper discussion of the concepts covered that week, answer students questions, give students an opportunity to share what they’ve learned, and allow the students time to connect with other students in an online group situation. These will also be recorded and posted in Orbund.

Is Funding Available?

If you live in Oakland County, Michigan or any contiguous county, you may apply for Clarkston Community School’s Online-Blended Learning funding for the Fall Semester of each year. Read through our frequently asked funding questions here.
