What is Ogden Online?
Ogden School District (OSD) is excited to launch our new K-12 online learning program: Ogden Online. The OSD vision is Empowering Excellence Through Education and we believe education is an activity that can take place regardless of time and place. The availability of online courses will help provide flexibility for students and offer additional pathways through which they can access high-quality learning experiences.
Ogden Online focuses on the core essentials and will provide OSD students with an opportunity to seamlessly engage in distance learning for English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Ogden Online courses are designed with the student in mind. Teachers prepare engaging digital coursework that not only meets the needs of the Utah Core Standards but also engages students in their learning much more than just reading and assessing online. Each Ogden Online course also ensures that a "classroom" community is developed digitally through discussions, collaboration, and experiential activities.
