The online program allows for students, parents, and teachers to access a student’s progress in real time through online progress reports. The online administration alerts students who are behind every three weeks with Big Deadline Dates.
At these three-week deadlines, zeros can be assigned for work not completed. However, we encourage families to meet with their Academic Coach or the Principal as soon as they are struggling so an individualized learning plan can be developed or modified.
Each student is assigned an Academic Coach upon enrolling in CAO. The Academic Coach is a resource for helping students stay on track and can arrange appointments with subject-area teachers. Coaches also assist by collecting work samples.
Learning Period Cohort Conferences
Students enrolled in CAO will be assigned a cohort teacher in addition to their Academic Coach. The cohort teacher will meet with each of their students and parents, every five weeks, to collect samples and discuss progress. These meetings are an integral part of the online and independent study experience.
