Dear PGUSD Families,
Attached please find a copy of the informational flyer about the new E-School option that is within the fully accredited K-12 school North Monterey County Center for Independent Study.  You can also visit their new E-School website at for more information.  We look forward to continuing our partnership for Independent Study and the new NMCUSD K12 Virtual E-School option for PGUSD K-12 students. 
Summary of the NMCUSD K12 Virtual E-School structure:
Virtual Education English
We will be offering daily distance learning classes for all grade levels.  The elementary grade spans will be self-contained and fully credentialed experienced teachers will be working with students as a whole class and individually daily and checking in with parents at least once per week, or more as needed.  Our elementary teachers support K-2 and 3-5 to ensure age appropriate instruction and enrichment activities.  The middle school level works with 6-8 grades.  Students are assigned a home room teacher who will meet with students as a class daily and will also provide individualized learning plans in coordination with other secondary teachers who also teach groups of students specialized subject matter content (Math, Science, ELA, Social Studies, etc).  Instrumental music, art and STEM enrichment lessons/activities, field trips and other activities will be provided to students.  High school students complete a full A-G course offerings which may include Dual Enrollment college level courses with Hartnell College and online Advanced Placement courses and each student has a "homeroom" teacher who works to coordinate their individualized learning plans with other experienced subject matter teachers who teach their courses. In addition, the school has an academic counselor/coordinator, mental health counselor, and access to wrap-around services for students and families. NMCUSD will provide all devices, hotspots, curriculum and related educational services and activities for each enrolled studentVirtual Education - Spanish
Background: NMCCIS and NMCUSD K12 Virtual E-School offer personalized learning experiences tailored to the needs of each student.  Additionally, families can choose a home-schooling option with guidance and support from teachers, or elect to continue distance learning with other classmates and teachers. The school's WASC accredited college preparation curriculum is accepted by the NCAA, UCs, CSUs, private, military and technical colleges. Students who enroll at NMCCIS and the NMCUSD K12 Virtual E-School have access to a wide spectrum of learning services and are provided with a blended learning educational program that includes one-on-one meetings with teachers, distance learning (both online learning and personalized instructional lessons), small group instruction, and enrichment activities.  
Process to Enroll:  Parents would request an inter-district transfer from Pacific Grove USD to NMCUSD.  Students would be enrolled into the NMC Center for Independent Study-NMCUSD K12 E-School program. Should a student require specialized services via an IEP, we will review the IEP and work with Pacific Grove USD to determine best means to deliver the required services.
