DISTANCE LEARNING PARTNERSHIP

Through partnership with NERIC, Questar III school districts are provided the ability to become a part of a regional distance learning community. This community shares programs through distance learning technologies that include a state-of-the-art, high-definition interactive video system. School districts use this system to teach courses simultaneously to students in different school buildings and remote locations. Additional details can be found at https://dl.neric.org/NERIC_DL_VC/news.htm.
