Virtual Learning Option

 Park Online Education (POE; 6-12)

The Educational Mission of the Livingston School District, in partnership with the community, is to provide the opportunity for all students to learn, in a safe environment, the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed in order to become life-long learners and contributing citizens in a diverse society.


At LPS, we strive to provide our students with rich learning experiences and engaging opportunities that allow them to not only progress to a high academic level but develop valuable skills and perspectives.  The POE is a virtual learning environment responsive to our family and community need.


At the POE, students can expect:



Our lead teacher is dedicated solely to Park Online Education students, providing direct instruction, academic intervention support,  and social-emotional learning.  This teacher works in conjunction with the hard-working staff members of the Park High School and Sleeping Giant Middle School to insure student success.

While POE students complete their primary coursework online, they have opportunities to come onsite to engage in, elective coursework and aided intervention as well as extracurricular programs and athletics.  





POE is academically rigorous and requires high levels of student-driven organization, intention, and drive.  For that reason, POE staff will monitor student progress, and if students are not maintaining good academic standing via their progress monitoring and grades, then recommendations will be made for their best learning environments and practices.  Students will have access to an LPS counselor as needed for academic and social-emotional guidance.  


The POE strives to establish a parental partnership in the students' learning. Open dialogue with the staff is highly encouraged and sought.




Students will have some flexibility in working through their coursework at their own pace but will have frequent scheduled connections with their teacher.  Every POE student will be required to meet the attendance guidelines outlined in the POE Handbook. Daily participation in Zoom Meetings and coursework are required for the first several weeks under the guidance of our lead teacher.  However, flexibility is granted as progress increases.








POE utilizes a digital curricular platform to provide our students access to a spectrum of high-quality, accredited curricula and courses.  In partnering with these learning management systems, POE provides interactive lessons with features that include facilitated and independent coursework, proficiency-based movement, self-paced lessons, and engagement analytics. 


*AP courses are available through our platform but may accrue an additional expense on the family's part due to the additional materials and testing required

Devices will be available for students in need of technology at home free of charge. Students and teachers will have access to tech support through the LPS IT department. Chromebooks will be issued to families for use at home.
