Schools across Alaska did an outstanding job of shifting, almost overnight, from traditional school-based instruction to home-based learning environments during school facility closures in the wake of COVID-19. This shift involved countless hours of preparation by Alaska's educators for a very new and different teaching and learning landscape. We commend our educators for taking this leap quickly and for ensuring ample opportunities for learning to continue during the final quarter of the school year.

The Alaska Statewide Virtual System, a project of Alaska Department of Education & Early Development, aims to support and further expand opportunities for students across Alaska through high-quality, distance-delivered coursework. Through a partnership with Florida Virtual School (FLVS) Global, AKSVS provided free access to coursework for Alaska's students during the school facility closures due to COVID-19 in the Spring and Summer of 2020. To date, more than 190 Alaskan educators have participated in training through the AKSVS platform to prepare them for possible remote and blended teaching and learning environments during the 2020-2021 school year.
