Overview

In partnership with the community, the mission of the Northshore School District is to provide a safe and respectful learning environment for all students to realize academic, social, and personal achievement.

It is our vision to provide high quality instruction and learning for every child, every day, in every classroom environment, whether that be a traditional classroom or an on-line learning experience.

The Northshore School District contracts with Graduation Alliance (aka NoDropouts, formerly known as The American Academy) and APEX Learning to provide a rigorous and relevant on-line education opportunity. The curriculum is aligned with all Washington State and Common Core standards. Through Grad Alliance/NoDropouts, students have access to certified teachers who provide guidance and assistance in real time and have on-line access anytime – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students are awarded credits as they successfully complete courses to a satisfactory standard. APEX is offered either during the school day or after school, where a certificated teacher is present to provide assistance and support to students as they progress through their on-line course.

Student-Teacher Contact Requirements

The NSD online program utilizes APEX Learning and No Dropouts-Graduation Alliance (previously known as The American Academy). Their curriculum provides challenging content and authentic learning experiences and is reviewed annually by educators. Assessments are reviewed based on student learning and scores on multiple assessments. Teachers engage the students through weekly check-ins, or in the case of APEX, sometimes daily. Online delivery takes on many forms and parents are also a part of this process.
