  • Home-Based is the Kindergarten through 8th grade version of Virtual Program and Independent Study.  The AEC provides District-approved curriculum for elementary school students (K-6) and junior high school students (7-8) in this program.  Curriculum is delivered to students both online and in packet format (written, paper/pencil work) depending on parent/student comfort level.  At the junior high school level, the AEC also offers students the option to study the world language, Spanish.  All students are assigned a credentialed, District teacher to guide them through their courses of study.  Students always remain attached to their home school…Home-Based is an extension of the home school.  Students work toward meeting the same academic benchmarks as at the school site and earn grades just as they would at their home school.  This program has been highly successful based on our 10 years of experience.  

    Virtual Program provides students research-based, District-approved curriculum with alignment that is universal.  This means a student can travel anywhere in the country and still have access to their curriculum without missing a beat.  All Virtual courses online include digital textbooks embedded within the program. The course work is based on scope and sequence with assignments designed in a uniform format.  Every test, quiz, and final exam are set for the entire semester/school year. Most importantly, the online platforms are user friendly!  Students have access to their courses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, allowing them to work at their own pace.  Students take a full load of courses (generally 6 classes) just as they would at the traditional school site.  Virtual program courses are A-G and NCAA approved, include Honors and AP options, and follow Special Education and 504 accommodations as required. All students are assigned a homeroom teacher, and work with credentialed, content area teachers for each of their subjects.  Students always remain attached to their home high school; the Virtual Program is an extension of the high school.

    Independent Study originally was created for students working in the film industry.  Since its inception, it is blossomed into an option that attracts high achievers, students working in the entertainment industry (actors, musicians), students pursuing professional athletics (gymnastics, soccer), as well as students needing flexibility due to personal situations such as needing to work to support their family, illness or teen pregnancy.  Students who are behind with credits toward graduation also have had significant success with this model.  Essentially, this program accommodates students who fit a non-traditional profile and seek a flexible schedule.  All students are assigned a homeroom teacher, and work with credentialed, content area teachers for each of their subjects.  Curriculum is delivered to students in packet format (written, paper/pencil work), one course at a time.  The minimum time to complete a course is two-weeks, maximum time is four-weeks.  Students may complete up to 45 credits in a single semester.  Independent Study courses are A-G approved and follow Special Education as well as 504 accommodations as required.  Students always remain attached to their home high school; Independent Study is an extension of the high school.
