What is Distance Learning?

Buncombe County Schools offers a variety of courses that are taught in partnership with other educational institutions.  These courses help our students personalize and enhance their educational pathways by adding a diverse selection of regular or advanced credits in all disciplines as well as many elective credits that can support student learning interests far beyond what is offered in a standard classroom setting.  Many of these opportunities take place in a computer lab during the school day, using purely online instruction, but there are also opportunities for students to complete courses in a hybrid environment (with a face to face instructor) or beyond the regular school day (through summer school and extra periods).
