Who We AreWe are teachers, staff and administrators that care about your student's education and specialize in delivering high quality instruction via the Internet.  Students that enroll full-time in the Digital Education Center, work to gain original credit towards a high school diploma.  Students may elect to remain at their home high schools and take up to (2) a-la-carte courses from the Digital Education Center by requesting courses through their school counselor.  Students may take more than two a-la-carte courses only if they have been granted permission by their home high school principal.   The Digital Education Center provides students with a web-based method of earning original credit. 
 
  • Our Mission We empower all students for college and/or career success by providing student-centered, quality, online learning paths.
  • Our Vision:  Elevate your learning, anytime, anywhere.
  • Our Values:  We inspire independence, self-reliance and ingenuity through adaptive, self-paced learning.
  • Our Motto:  Every student, every day, everywhere, whatever it takes.
 
Communication:  We are a virtual school and use multiple forms of communication with parents and students (telephone, email, web meetings, in-person meetings etc). We require an active parental email address for students to be admitted to the Digital Education Center.  All 7th-12th grade students are provided with a Tooele County School District email address which they need to use to participate in online coursework.
