Distance Learning/Alternative Learning Program
The distance learning program provides opportunities for Watauga High School students to participate in courses not traditionally offered in the classroom at WHS. Students may also be enrolled in distance learning to recover lost credits. Curriculum is provided through Compass - Learning Odyssey, North Carolina Virtual Public Schools (NCVPS), and other higher educational institutes. Students should see their assigned school counselor if interested in taking an online course.
Watauga High School Alternative Learning Program (ALP)
The Watauga High School Alternative Learning Program consists of the temporary placement of certain students in a more controlled environment, offering flexible scheduling to meet individual needs. The Alternative Learning Program provides certified instructors who facilitate and support students’ successful completion of courses through online or general education instruction. Students, in addition to the regular curriculum, are involved in several enrichment activities, which may include special sessions conducted by various school support staff and/or outside community agencies. Students will be considered for participation in the program through a referral process only. Referrals can be made by the student, parent, teacher, counselor, or administrator to the ALP Coordinator. Please refer to the link below for a copy of the ALP referral form if needed. Upon enrollment into the program, an Individualized Success Plan (ISP) will be created for each student. The ISP will outline goals that will assist the student in completing courses necessary to graduate with his/her cohort. Assessment is completed at the conclusion of each semester to determine if the student is ready to be placed back in the general education setting.
