Platform Students are provided with a web-based student portal which includes access to their coursework, virtual classrooms, online gradebook and numerous other resources.  The portal also includes a monthly calendar and weekly progress indicator to help students stay on track to finish their coursework on time. Additionally, students have the option to schedule on-demand synchronous sessions with their teacher when needed. 

Parents are enrolled as observers in their child’s courses. As long as a valid email is provided, observers and students are emailed weekly progress reports. Additionally, observers may log in to our learning management system at any time to see grades, pacing, course material, and teacher feedback. Contact information is present within the course so that a parent may contact the student’s teacher.
