    2022-2023 Parkway Virtual Campus for High School Students

    In November, we surveyed families of students in Parkway Virtual Campus to help us get a sense of how many students might continue learning virtually next school year.  Thank you to everyone who responded. 

    Almost 50% of high school families indicated they intend to continue learning online with the remainder planning for their children to attend school in-person.

    Since we expect a smaller group of students (350 high school students) enrolled in Virtual Campus, there will be changes in the 2022-2023 school year in order to maintain a quality experience. 

    There are two key things to know as you consider the best setting for your child:

    • Students continuing to learn virtually will have a limited course guide from which to select their classes for next school year.
    • Virtual learning for Parkway students will be a combination of classes taught by Parkway teachers and classes available through Parkway’s preferred online learning provider, Launch, or other virtual learning providers.
    • Whenever enrollment is sufficient, classes taught by Parkway teachers will be offered synchronously.  Whenever enrollment is not sufficient, students should expect classes to be offered asynchronously.


The High School Virtual Campus will mirror the in-person 2022-2023 bell schedule. Classes begin at 7:35 am and end at 2:30 pm. Synchronous learning may begin later or end earlier than the in-person class start and end times.

Block schedule class periods will be comprised of:

  • 45-50 minutes live instruction
  • 36-41 minutes asynchronous independent, and small group work

Traditional schedule class periods will be comprised of:

  • 20-30 minutes live instruction
  • 15-25 minutes asynchronous independent, and small group work

Attendance for Parkway Virtual Campus will be taken daily and students are expected to attend all scheduled class sessions and teacher requested help sessions.

Student Role

  • Access your online courses daily and participate in video conference meetings. Learning activities will be within or linked from your course's learning management system.
  • Set up and follow a daily routine and schedule to participate in class and complete out of class activities.
  • Review the recordings of any lessons as needed.
  • During synchronous classes, having cameras on is required except by approval of parent, teacher, and principal. 
  • Be ready to participate in on and offline activities and assessments.

Parent/Guardian Role

  • Encourage student engagement and communication with teacher.
  • Monitor student’s comprehension and grades (through Schoology, Infinite Campus, and third-party online parent portals).
  • Encourage independence with support to learn time-management skills.
  • Communicate, as needed, with your student’s teacher while supporting student/teacher communication.  Encourage your student to attend teachers’ additional help sessions when needed and reach out to them for extra support.

Teachers Role

  • Post high quality and age-appropriate lessons that follow the Parkway curriculum.
  • Provide timely and specific feedback to both students and parents about a student’s progress.
  • Be responsive to student needs in support of their individual growth.

Successful Parkway Virtual Campus students will:

  • Monitor Parkway email and online assignments daily.
  • Demonstrate time-management skills that indicate the student is capable of submitting assignments and completing course requirements without reminders.
  • Demonstrate persistence in overcoming obstacles and willingness to seek assistance when needed.
  • Demonstrate verbal or written communication skills that would allow the student to succeed in an environment where the instructor may not provide nonverbal cues to support the student's understanding.
  • Have the necessary computer or technical skills to succeed in a virtual course.
  • Be able to access technology resources to participate in a virtual course.
  • Ensure Zoom profile images are of the student or their name. Images should be school appropriate.

Parent University Are you interested in learning more about the online platforms that Parkway is using with students during distance and virtual learning?

Parent University is a course created in Schoology, our district Learning Management System, that has information about Schoology, Google for Education, videoconferencing, and digital citizenship. Within the course you will find information that will help you understand the tools students use as well as opportunities for you to experience the tools from the student perspective. The goal of the course is to support you in feeling confident that you can help your child(ren) with online learning in Parkway. While you are welcome to explore the materials in any order, it would be beneficial to work through the Schoology folder first to learn how to interact with tools you will encounter in other folders. Follow these directions to enroll in the Parkway Parent University Schoology Course! Be sure to scroll down to page 2.
