Overview

Oak Harbor Public Schools initiated a program called iGrad Academy to help locate at-risk students that have either stopped coming to school or had other mitigating factors that precluded them from attending. Through this reengagement program, former students ages 16-21 who are considered dropouts by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction are offered ways to return to school. The first goal is to reach out to these students to see if they can be reengaged into the regular school program. If traditional high school doesn’t suit the students, they are considered for the Midway program. As a final solution to meet the Oak Harbor School District’s goal of on-time graduation iGrad Academy offers students the ability to earn their high school diploma through online learning.

iGrad Academy is offered in partnership with an organization called Graduation Alliance. Resources offered to at-risk students include a teaching mentor and technology so they can participate with online learning to meet graduation requirements. Students are provided with a laptop, a local advocate, an academic advocate and access to tutors 24 hours a day. Since iGrad Academy is considered a school within the District, students who have dropped out need to reside in the district to participate in the program.

Students

Through this reengagement program, former students ages 16-21 who are considered dropouts by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction are offered ways to return to school as well as students who have been unsuccessful in the regular school environment.

Student-Teacher Contact Requirements

The program supplies an asynchronous learing environment. Teachers provide feedback to students through the learning management system and are available to students for synchronous remediation and enrichment. All ALE contact requirements are met with weekly two way contacts, and weekly and monthly progress evaluations.

Courseware Platform

The program uses web-based courses via Brainhoney, a student learning environment feveloped by Agilix Labs. Brainhoney was designed in collaboration with Graduation Alliance to meet the specific needs of high school-age full-time online learners. For students who do not have ready access to high-speed internet.

Access is given to Graduation Alliance’s fully-integrated, proprietary Partner Portal, which allows students, parents, mentors, and administrators complete transparency into activity and performance at both the student and program levels. Proactive alerts and notificaitons and role-specific dashboards provide a support infrastructure for student success.
