What Parents are Saying:

 “My son and I have been doing the Long-term Independent Study for two years and we really love it. Right now we are doing a hybrid of the online program, as well as pieces of the traditional program in Language Arts. This allows us to accommodate my son in areas that he is excelling and meet him at his academic level. The instruction manuals are very helpful to me as his coach, and the diverse learning activities keep things exciting for my son.”

J.R., First Grade Parent

 

“I really appreciate being able to use the online program through the district. My kids are getting high quality academics, support from a teacher, and we have more time for life. As their coach, I am less stressed keeping up with their lessons than with the take home homework from previous classrooms.”

D.W., Parent of three in Independent Study

 

“The program has worked for us. It’s modern, engaging and allows us to explore other means to learn from. It’s interactive and speaks to students in a way they’re more familiar with in today’s world. There are lessons that are optional or you can interject real life experience, knowledge, even stuff you recall from your own education. The online staff and the iREADY staff are very helpful and are available any time you need assistance.”

M.E., Third Grade Learning Coach
