During the 2018-19 school year, Metro South offered students online learning options. Students have been encouraged to improve their English language learning and academic skills outside of class through MobyMax and Edmentum online learning platforms. This opportunity has been an overwhelming success and students have provided positive feedback about how they enjoy being able to learn more outside of class. As of June 30, 2019, 946 Metro South students have utilized the online learning platforms and have earned a total of 15,661 online learning hours.
In June, Metro South offered a month long contest with fabulous prizes awarded to the top 3 individual student hour earners and a pizza party for the class that earned the most total hours. The top winner was:
Nimo Kulane - 239.25 hours. She won a $25 gift card donated by CUB Foods and a messenger bag with donated treats and school supplies.
Brigid Erickson's Monday through Thursday morning class earned the most hours as a class, with a total of 418 hours. The class celebrated by winning a pizza party.
Metro South looks forward to increasing their distance learning hours in 19-20. The plan is to offer students more online learning platforms to foster their academic growth.
