We are committed to delivering high-quality, alternative education via distance learning. While it will be challenging to replicate onsite learning, our teachers are equipped and ready to deliver meaningful instruction that allows students to meet the expected standards of an online environment.
Dawson has implemented a blended synchronous and asynchronous curriculum model; meaning, some lessons are assigned for students to work through independently using a variety of online resources, while others are delivered through live video conferencing. This hybrid model enables teachers to continue and follow developmentally-appropriate practices and differentiate student learning.
The Dawson distance learning experience aligns with our student learner profile and our Core Beliefs
. Our students will be empowered to make choices about how they demonstrate an understanding of clearly defined learning goals and be provided opportunities to engage in online discussions; collaboration to solve authentic, real-world problems; feel safe to take intellectual risks while persevering through challenges; find support through feedback, coaching, and opportunities for reflection and revision; and continue to be passionate, intrinsically motivated, and inspired to action.
