VIRTUAL LEARNING AT KIPP DC:
The goal of the virtual learning program at KIPP DC is to develop a desire and love for learning in students in our virtual program. Staff members give students in our program personalized experience, seeking to know a child, their family, their strengths, and their areas for growth, in a fully virtual space. The virtual program strives to provide students with an intensive foundation in the core academic subjects through a blend of asynchronous and synchronous instruction. Learning Coordinators in virtual classrooms build on the asynchronous KIPP DC content, created by Virtual Content Creators, to support students in their learning in small group settings for 3-5 hours/day. Virtual Learning Coordinators cultivate a strong sense of belonging and a strong relationship with their caseload of students and families. Through powerful lessons and relationships, Learning Coordinators lead student learning in English Language Arts, math, science, social studies, and special education.
In core subjects, 1st-8th grade learning coordinators implement research-based curricula, brought to life digitally by our virtual content creators, that are Common Core aligned and student centered. KIPP DC curricula is added to and revised by a committee of teachers and leaders focusing on culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy. Our Virtual Content Creators bring this curriculum to our students’ screens at home and our Learning Coordinators support students in their understanding, practice, and growth.
With planning time, content meetings, and daily student work/data analysis, Learning Coordinators work collaboratively with peers in the virtual school program. Learning Coordinators receive feedback and support from school leaders, and other teammates. School culture at the virtual program is grounded in Positive Behavior Incentives Systems (PBIS) led by an attendance and family success manager at the school. Student identity and creativity is recognized through weekly celebrations and a myriad of clubs ranging from Project Lit to martial arts. This is an exempt position and reports to the virtual school principal.
