On Site Learning Pods @ Great Oaks
In response to the increased need for academic support and personal connection among the Great Oaks student body, Great Oaks – Wilmington has launched on-site learning opportunities to students who are struggling with the distance learning platform. Pods are hosted both on the Great Oaks campus and at off-site locations with our community partners. The goal of our learning pods is to increase student attendance and engagement in distance learning. Learning pods offer social emotional awareness programming as well as technical support for students as they attend their virtual classrooms.
For more information at in-person learning at Great Oaks, review our Learning Pods Family Packet. [PDF Attached]

We are pleased to provide every GO-Wil student with a Chromebook for use during remote learning. The school issued Chromebook is for instructional purposes for the duration of the school year both in and outside of school. We need your support and partnership to ensure implementation goes as smoothly as possible. In an effort to educate students and families we have prepared a brief video outlining logistics, expectations and policies.

Chromebooks can be picked up from Great Oaks Charter School during business hours. If you have not yet received your Chromebook, please contact the school at 302-660-4790 or e-mail [email protected]
Each student has a Great Oaks Wilmington Google account. Student accounts are tied to our learning platform, Schoology. Students will receive updates and messages regarding their coursework via Gmail and should plan to log in every day. Great Oaks e-mail addresses were provided to you at the time of Chromebook pick up. If you did not receive your e-mail address, please e-mail [email protected], call the school at 302-660-4790 or ask one of your students’ teachers.
To sign in to Google:
- Go to Google (www.Gmail.com)
- Click the blue Sign In button in the top right corner or “Add Another Account”
- Sign in using your student email address
We will be utilizing a learning platform called Schoology for remote learning. During the first week of school, students will receive a daily e-mail in their inbox with the links to their classes, which will be held via the video conferencing platform, Zoom. Throughout their first week, teachers will support students in accessing and navigating Schoology. Starting on Monday, September 14, students will access all of their coursework via Schoology. Please make sure students check their e-mail before the start of classes on Tuesday to ensure they are on time for their first class.
MAP Growth Testing
GO-Wilm will be conducting MAP growth testing remotely during the second week of school, Sept 13-17.
MAP Growth helps teachers understand what students know today, so goals can be set to improve growth throughout the year. Students cannot pass or fail this test.
This test will not affect grades. In fact, it’s normal for students to only answer about half the questions correctly. Please don’t help them!
Given the challenges of learning from home, MAP Growth test results are especially helpful for us this year. These results will help us know what students are ready to learn.

¿Qué es MAP Growth?
MAP Growth le permite al maestro saber lo que sus estudiantes saben y así pueden establecer metas para progresar durante el año. Los estudiantes no pasan ni reprueban la prueba.
La prueba no afecta a las calificaciones. En realidad, es común que el estudiante responda correctamente la mitad de las preguntas. ¡Favor de no ayudarle!
Dados los desafíos de aprender desde casa, los resultados de MAP Growth son particularmente útiles este año. Nos ayudan a saber aquello que el estudiante está listo para aprender.
