Schools have been placed under tremendous pressure to provide students with a quality education in an online environment. In the process, student engagement should not be ignored. The purpose of the capstone project is to improve student engagement while in a remote learning environment. It is important to consider the issue of student online engagement because students can fall behind in their studies. An evidence based argument is offered how students who do not engage in the online classroom express the lack of peer and teacher interactions. The four primary stakeholder perspectives chosen were two parents and two fourth grade students, because they have experienced the struggles of remote learning during COVID 19. Three themes emerged from an analysis of data and explored as ways to address the issue presented. Based on the data analysis, an action was chosen as an effective way to engage students in the remote classroom.
