HAVEN Elementary Overview
Our K-6 HAVEN program uses the Accelerate Education platform to offer full-time, online learning for our elementary grade levels. Since 2004, we have had students at the elementary level participate in online learning through HAVEN.
In this program, teachers from Accelerate Education serve as classroom facilitators. As of July 21, 2020 there is a possibility that a Hempfield teacher may serve as the facilitator for the online elementary program. Final details will be shared ASAP.
In either case, Hempfield courses and Accelerate Education courses are built using a similar set of standards. Approaches to lesson design, learning opportunities, and assessments will vary teacher to teacher, but students will learn similar content in traditional courses and courses taught through HAVEN.

About Learning Coaches
Particularly at the elementary grade levels, an at-home learning coach is an important component of full-time online learning. A learning coach works alongside the student at home each day to provide support, guidance, and motivation for the online learning experience.
