Last December, Mountain View–Los Altos students were given a second opportunity to choose between two remote learning models to participate in for the upcoming semester. Option A offered a remote model taught and paced by MVLA teachers with the potential for in-person learning when safety regulations permit. Option B, on the other hand, offered a student-paced model utilizing online platforms like Edgenuity and UC Scout that would allow students to stay in online-learning regardless of safety regulations. The Talon interviewed two students who opted to switch options halfway through the 2020–21 school year in order to explore the advantages and disadvantages of each option from a student perspective.
