Students

The on-line program is inclusive in that it provides a supported learning environment for students with a wide range of academic abilities. Whether that includes an IEP or 504 plan or includes those students enrolled in tech center, AP or Running start programs. Currently we are serving 9-12 however by 2017 we will be offering the program for 6-8 students as well.

Student-Teacher Contact Requirements

Our online program includes a student-teacher contact requirement. Our requirement is a minimum of 60 minutes per week face to face. We do not provide for emails, text, or phone calls as we believe strongly that adult connection through our on-line program. More time may be required for a student to receive the intervention needed to be successful, in which case the student, and teacher will agree on additional time for success.

Courseware Platform

The platform will utilize APEX for the 9-12 course offerings. As we move into the offerings for 6-8 grade we will purchase Odyssey Ware. We believe that these two platforms will allow us to meet our students academically where they are at and move them into the future with strong skills.
