Return to School Fall 2020

We will be adding information to this page as details become finalized.

WANIC students at Lake Washington Inst. of Technology (LWTech) and DigiPen Inst. of Technology will be starting the 2020-21 school year in a fully remote setting 

  • First day of school is Tuesday Sep 1, 2020
  • Synchronous/live instruction will be balanced throughout the week
  • Daily attendance will be required
  • Typical grading will be used (students earn A, B, C, D, or F letter grade)
  • We plan to schedule in-person classes/hands-on labs as soon as schools reopen
  • Students were approved for specific class times by their sending high school. WANIC schedules have remained consistent. Our students come to WANIC from more than eight school districts. We understand that many sending school schedules have been adjusted for remote learning and that students may have schedule conflicts on certain days. The expectation is the sending school and WANIC will split the schedule conflict difference evenly to allow your students to get the most out of each class without sacrificing one over the other.
