Virtual Learning Registration
Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year!
BHAS is dedicated to providing the highest quality education to our students as possible in a safe and healthy environment. Our Return to Learn plan includes a layered approach of interventions to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. We understand that with all of these precautions, there may be individuals who are still at a higher health risk concerning the virus.We are prepared to offer those students the opportunity to continue in a virtual setting if all of the criteria are met:
- Are at high risk of health complications due to the COVID-19
- Provide medical documentation for students or family members within the same household
- Commitment to logging in on time and attending all scheduled classes

The K-5 virtual setting will be multi-grade, multi-age level. Depending upon the number of students who qualify for virtual learning, students may be clustered by K-1, 2-3, and 4-5. Learning will be both synchronous and asynchronous. This means that your student will be required to log into Zoom and interact with the teacher and other students at various times throughout the day and work independently.
At these grade levels, parent participation and support are key. Parents should be prepared to assist their children with login procedures and should help to monitor student progress and engagement. Each school has designated a support person who will conduct wellness checks and assist with immediate needs. Additionally, there will be a virtual learning coordinator to assist with instructional and technology support:Dawn Lamas

The 6-12 virtual setting will continue to be offered through the Career and Alternative Pathways in Education or CAPE Center. Students will receive an Edgenuity account and will be assigned teachers according to their scheduled subjects. Enrollment at CAPE does not require a special application and any 6-12 student is encouraged to enroll who feels that a 100% virtual learning setting meets his/her needs.
Virtual learning at CAPE is asynchronous. This means that students will work independently and at their own pace. CAPE teachers serve as facilitators. They are responsible for connecting with their students throughout the day and the week by providing office hours and/or individual one-on-one sessions. Students are encouraged to reach out to their teachers at any time.
Benton Harbor High School students who choose to attend CAPE this year will still receive support from the high school. Both CAPE and the high school share the responsibility of ensuring student success. There are two virtual learning coordinators that will support students throughout this process:

9-12 Edgenuity Coordinator
