One of the first questions we are asked is, "What exactly is the Partnership?"
The Partnership is a welcome resource for any family looking for an innovative way to support the education of their child. We partner with experts in the community to provide unique and interesting courses and opportunities. These virtual courses with application are funded by the Gibraltar School District, meaning little or no cost to families. We partner with local businesses, renting their space to hold these application opportunities that support the virtual coursework.
All students in grades K-12 (full-time or part-time) are welcome to enroll with the partnership. Students can take part in weekly applications offered within the community that coincide with their virtual course work. Some of these virtual courses with application include:
- Lifetime Sports and Fitness
- Money Management
- Life Skills
- TV Puppetry
- Earth Exploration
- Life Drawing
- And so many more!
The application of these virtual courses meet weekly throughout the school year; September through May. Most applications are held at the hub on Wednesdays, and some are community applications, held in various business locations.
We have 48 different virtual courses with application to choose from for the Winter 2020 semester! Would you like to know more about each class? Please check out our Winter Course Catalog.
The Partnership meets from September - May. There are two semesters, each containing 18 weeks. Please see our 2019-2020 calendar for more details.
