District 21 gets innovative with alternative education

When forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools and teachers everywhere had to get creative in order to teach their students. What came out of this necessity was a new understanding of all the different ways in which students can be taught, and all the different ways students learn. While many students can thrive and do well in a traditional schooling environment, others may need or desire a different approach. For District 21 (D21) in The Dalles, this is where Innovations Academy comes in.
