Full Virtual Option:
The Lakeland School District will offer a fully virtual option for students who are unable to attend school in-person. Unlike last year, this option will be facilitated by the 3rd party provider Edmentum and not Lakeland teachers. Instruction will be provided by state certified teachers from Edmentum utilizing standards-aligned curriculum. Students taking advantage of this option must enroll for a minimum of one quarter.
Those wishing to learn more about this option are asked to contact Melissa Regal at (570) 254-9485 ext. 1000. Parents considering this option are asked to contact the district no later than August 25th.
