September 4, 2020 update — We are pleased to announce that we will be shifting our main Online Academy elementary platform to Accelerate Education. In addition to Accelerate Education, we will continue to supplement student learning with Dreambox, RazKids, and synchronous sessions with our K-5 students.
At the secondary level (grades 6-12) we will be shifting the main Online Academy resource to Edgenuity. Since we offer so many courses at the secondary level, we will also need to provide some courses through Accelerate Learning. Finally, there are about 100 students taking elective courses in Apex and Acellus, and those courses will continue for the time being.
For more details about this announcement, please view this video. We would like to thank our teachers and parent volunteers for helping us with a thoughtful process in a short time frame to help maintain continuity of learning for students.
In terms of timeline, it will take about two weeks for us to be completely up and running with our new resources. We need to work with these companies to get everything connected, train teachers, and schedule students into the courses. During that time, elementary students can expect to continue their learning with DreamBox, RazKids, and small group synchronous sessions on Zoom a couple of times per week. Secondary students will continue their progress in the current platform.
