In response to feedback from our students, families, and teachers, NKC Schools is continuing to offer a 100% virtual learning option.
For students in kindergarten through eighth grade, we offer fully virtual learning through the SchoolsPLP platform. SchoolsPLP is a fully online program, offering elementary and middle school students the opportunity to learn independently from home. The curriculum is aligned to Missouri Learning Standards and provides great flexibility as students have the ability to learn following their own schedules. Learn more about SchoolsPLP here.
Students in high school who are interested in virtual learning should contact their counselor to learn more about the course offerings available through LAUNCH.
All families are asked to make at least a semester commitment to a virtual learning option, limiting mid-year transitions between learning modes as has been the norm. Communication regarding second semester declarations will be sent in late fall.
For questions, please contact Dr. Eric Sipes, Executive Director of Instructional Technology.

For students in kindergarten through eighth grade, we will continue to offer fully virtual learning through the SchoolsPLP platform.

- Has your child developed good time-management skills? Are they comfortable following a schedule and independently managing their work?
- Is your child comfortable asking for help?
- Does your child have the technical skills to successfully learn in a virtual setting?
