Welcome to a new school year! I hope that we all can work together and achieve our goals. This is a site for all information needed to get through your online course successfully. This is where you can find the links for the websites needed to get to your course from home. You will find contact information for your teachers here as well. There are multiple labs that are run through Buchanan. We have two labs inside the High School, the Enrichment Lab and CTE Lab. There is also the Buchanan Virtual Program and Step up for students working at home. You can find access to these labs and information pertaining to each one.

How to succeed in an online course...
When it comes to an online course, you need to have the drive to push yourself to work. Working outside of your classroom will help you get done faster. Make sure you are bringing headphones so you can listen to your videos. Take lots of notes, these can be used on any and all tests. Don't talk to neighbors, you are responsible for your class. Everything has to be done, make sure you are looking at your pacing guide and following it step by step. Being ahead is always a good thing, being behind is where we run into problems. Ask questions, whether it is to your room supervisor or a message/phone call to your teacher. We are all here to help you pass our class. No one wants to see you fail.
Back on Track
This is a video that the Virtual teachers have created to help remind you that you are important and they want you to succeed. If you are feeling like you are stuck and don't want to move on, watch this video and then contact your teacher or mentor for some help. It is time to get back on track. You got this!
Superheros.....because I Said I would.
The 2016-2017 school year theme was Superheroes. This is a video that the students were asked to watch and then take a card and write down what they said they would do. I am leaving this video up as it has good meaning behind it.
