Digital Learning Academy Information

Parents have a choice when it comes to education and have voiced a need for both in-person and online learning options. The award-winning Litchfield Elementary School District provides a full spectrum of choices for families when making education decisions.

The Digital Learning Academy (DLA) is a full-time, online K-8 school in the Litchfield Elementary School District (LESD). LESD teachers will deliver live and recorded instruction to students in an online environment, as well as offer support and feedback through formative and summative assessment and virtual meetings. Teachers will work with students in large and small groups, as well as one-on-one. 

Students in the DLA will have live interactions with LESD teachers and classmates, and participate in interactive lessons from wherever the internet is available. Lessons and content are aligned with the LESD district-adopted curriculum and resources and are consistent with the lessons occurring on our campuses. Classwork is a mixture of online and offline work.

Teachers and students will use Conscious Discipline to create strong and connected classroom communities and social-emotional learning and supports. Students will also have the opportunity for accommodations and support services and specials and electives. DLA students will be able to participate in after school activities at their LESD home school.

Participation in DLA requires a connection to the internet with a minimum of 25 MBPS and a dedicated device to access class content and instruction. LESD can provide a device based on needs criteria. DLA students will be expected to work online approximately 5 hours during the school day.
