Hello Parents and Guardians:
This is Dr. Preston Carr, Director for the Alternative Education Center (AEC). The AEC is a K thru 12 Independent Study/Home Base or Home School type program that offers both online and in-person learning. Our K thru 6 programs has really grown this school year and as result, we have increased staff to service students in our community.
The AEC has serviced students with online learning for the last 10 years and this year there is a demand for “distance learning” meaning students do not have to come in-person to learn. Our Virtual online platform provides flexible schedules for students to learn with 24/7 access to the curriculum; however, we do have either Zoom or Google Classroom that provides a chance for students to get to know their teacher and meet other students.
Students at the AEC have credentialed teachers in the content areas of the core for secondary and all elementary teachers have multiple subject credentials to teach K thru 6. Again, we do offer learning without students entering the building. For more details, check the website and reach out to our counselors or counseling assistants for further assistance.
Check the AEC webpage (https://www.chino.k12.ca.us/alted) on a regular basis for information regarding how your student will continue the programs that we offer.
Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented emergency.
