The Upper Darby School District is proud to offer two online approaches to education for the students and families in our community. We offer the following online learning environments for students:
Upper Darby School District offers various learning models for our students living in the School District. These models include In-Person Instruction, Synchronous Online Learning, and Asynchronous Online Learning. Students may choose any of these options for their education.
For more information regarding the online learning opportunities, please see below.
Synchronous Online Learning - This learning model is available to all students in the Upper Darby School District. Upper Darby School District started to provide synchronous learning in the 2020-2021 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This model requires students to attend online at specified times and follow the school’s in-person schedule. Teachers and staff will utilize the technology installed throughout the district (i.e., classroom cameras, and microphones) to provide opportunity, unity, and excellence in education to all students. Parent/guardian supervision and internet service are required for this instructional model.
Asynchronous Online Learning - This learning model is available to all students in the Upper Darby School District. The courses were written by Upper Darby School District teachers and will be delivered through Schoology, our Learning Management System (LMS). School assignments will be released weekly by the teacher of record. Asynchronous learning assignments and pacing will align with the in-person learning environment. While virtual learning models are available for K-5 students, we strongly encourage parents of online learners to attend in-person instruction. Parent/ guardian supervision and internet service are required for this instructional model.
