St. Mary's County Public Schools (SMCPS) understands that digital learning is a way to individualize student learning opportunities. Online learning opportunities are available for original credit, credit recovery, quarterly recovery, and unit recovery in blended learning environments. Online learning or eLearning provides an opportunity for students to take a course when enrollment is too low to assign a teacher to a traditional classroom. Blended learning environments incorporate both face-to-face and online learning. Technology and digital resources are employed to improve student productivity and learning as well as extend the "learning day."
