A Range of Options
With Accelerate Education’s range of options, schools can choose how they want to provide this option. They can exercise full control over the educational process, even providing their own teachers, or they can let Accelerate Education’s own highly qualified staff teach the students as an extension of their own faculty.
Accelerate Education provides online education courses for Kindergarten through 12th grade to meet the needs of all students, from at-risk students who had trouble succeeding in the traditional classroom to high achieving students seeking classes their schools cannot provide for them.
Benefits of Online Education Courses
Online courses extend the scope of a school’s instructional program, allowing schools of any size to meet the needs of each member of a diverse student body without straining its resources. Schools can add a wide variety of course offerings to their catalogs without adding staff or classrooms.
Even students who are physically unable to attend the school can continue to be active members of the student body. All students can have schedules tailored to their individual needs.
Meeting the School's Objectives
In the modern era of education, schools are expected to adapt instructional delivery to meet the needs of all students. They must also make whatever adaptations are necessary to meet the individual needs of students. Schools also need to offer more instructional choices to students and provide alternatives to the traditional classroom experience.
Online education provides a valuable option that was not previously available. Online education provides an excellent alternative for:
- Students seeking alternatives to the traditional classroom
- High achieving students who need classes with enrollments too low for the school to offer economically
- Students seeking classes for which the school does not have a qualified teacher on staff
- Credit deficient students needing to make up required classes
- Students with unusual travel demands
- Home bound students too ill to attend school
- Students with scheduling conflicts
