Providing a unique learning opportunity for parents to be more involved in their student's education. That's the goal of an Omaha Public Schools program that uses technology to promote what the district calls blended learning. This is the program's fourth year. There are currently more than 200 kindergarten through 11th grade students enrolled at Omaha Virtual School.
Director of the Omaha Virtual School, Dr. Wendy Loewenstein, stops by the KIOS-FM studios to chat with Mike Hogan about how this school is a combination of in-person and at-home learning. For example, once a week, students go to a classroom setting at the TAC building.
There is still time to register students for this free program. The last "Info-session" before the start of the school year is Tuesday, July 23rd at 9:30am at Abrahams Library. It is free and open to the public.
