On July 16th the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) announced that students and families must be given the choice for in-person classes or online classes for the 2021 – 2022 school year. In cooperation with more than a dozen school districts, Waconia Public Schools will offer a fully online enrollment option for K-12 families, while maintaining a place for you in your school.

This collaborative program called the Southwest Metro e-Learning Enterprise (SEE) will be available throughout the year, offering full-time and part-time curriculum with “live” online teaching of MDE approved courses for all grades K through 12. SWMetro has been offering online courses for more than a decade.

Students will attend school online each day and work with teachers to complete learning activities in real time by video conferencing and private tutorial. Both teacher-guided and independent assignments will mirror the same concepts and curriculum as in-school counterparts; however, the delivery is adapted to help students succeed in an online environment.
