The district is launching a new virtual school called Mehlville@Home that will be an option for families beginning in August 2020. Any student in grades K-12 can choose to enroll in Mehlville@Home on a semester-by-semester basis.


Why was Mehlville@Home created? 

Mehlville@Home was created to meet the diverse needs of our students and families and to continue to expand opportunities for personalized learning. The district was in the process of creating a virtual school prior to the pandemic, and COVID-19 accelerated our timeline. 


What will my student learn in Mehlville@Home? 

Students at the elementary school level will have access to English Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies courses taught by a Mehlville School District certified teacher. Music, Physical Education and Art will either be taught by a Mehlville certified teacher or through a platform like Launch or Edgenuity. 


Students at the middle school or high school level will have access to English Language Arts and Social Studies courses taught by a Mehlville School District certified teacher. Science, Math, Career Education, Health, Physical Education, Art, Music and other courses will either be taught by a Mehlville certified teacher or through another platform like Launch of Edgenuity. 


How will Mehlville@Home compare to in-person school?

Mehlville@Home, similar to on-campus learning, offers an engaging student experience with embedded technology usage. The district curriculum will be the same for on-campus learning and for Mehlville@Home, and students will take the same assessments and will be graded in the same manner as their on-campus peers.


Is this different than what was offered from March to May? 

Yes. Mehlville@Home teachers will provide a robust learning experience for their students. Teachers in the program are receiving regional and national training for best practices in teaching virtually. 


What does a typical Mehlville@Home day look like? 

Students will have a mix of live Google Meets for instruction and classroom discussion, as well as independent activities to complete. They will be engaged in learning the same as their peers on-campus.


Will Mehlville@Home be around after the pandemic is over? 

We are committed to providing a virtual option for students and to grow the program for those wanting to access it. Numbers may fluctuate after the pandemic, but we want to provide students with educational platforms that will help them succeed.


Where can I find more information about Mehlville@Home?

The district recently hosted a series of informational meetings for parents regarding Mehlville@Home. Those videos can be viewed in their entirety.

Questions were gathered during the meetings, and we are in the process of developing a Frequently Asked Questions document. That will be shared with more information about Mehlville@Home including instructions on how to enroll when we release our Return to School plan the week of July 20.
