Our full time program is only offered to students in grades 11 and 12. In addition to our technology and business courses, our full time program features core curriculum developed by Florida Virtual School, a leader in K-12 online education.
Students from all experience and skill levels find our online courses informative, engaging, and flexible enough to fit into their traditional school schedules. Students may work on assignments during times convenient for them, chat online with classmates, post to class forums, and meet one-on-one with instructors during his or her weekly office hours.
EXPECTATIONS – While the online format may be more flexible or convenient than a traditional classroom for some students, the coursework is still rigorous and requires dedication and focus to be successful. Students must devote time every day to studying, asking questions, completing assignments, and staying in close contact with teachers.
REQUIRED SKILLS – Computer literacy is important for students to be successful in our courses, including the ability to use a computer, correspond via email, navigate with a web browser, follow multiple-step instructions, read and comprehend at a 6th-grade level or above, follow a lesson schedule, and complete coursework on time.
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES – Our courses are accessible to people with vision impairments who rely on screen reading software, and are accessible for students with limited mobility who need to navigate course content using a computer keyboard instead of a mouse.
ENGAGEMENT – Growing evidence indicates that CTE programs – with course offerings similar to our career education electives – can improve student learning trajectories by reducing dropouts and absentee rates, improving engagement and achievement, and easing transitions for college-bound students.
BUILDING PORTFOLIOS – The project-based lesson structure of our career education electives offers many opportunities for students to complete challenging design and programming projects, which provide authentic evidence of the skills and knowledge that they have mastered during the course.
Courses are aligned to Washington State curriculum standards and CTE frameworks. Courses also conform to iNACOL’s standards for quality online instruction and are compliant with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
We also maintain a robust revision and redevelopment schedule to assure that our curriculum reflects the latest in technology education.
