Today's generation is all about technology- cell phones, ipods, gaming, computers, etc.- it's called the internet generation, or "iGeneration". The iGeneration has never known life without the Internet, being mobile, using avatars, IMing or choosing and watching content almost whenever & wherever they want.
To reach them in their high-tech, high-touch world, many parents and educators are looking at how to rewire schools to match how the iGeneration learns- that's where KC Distance Learning (KCDL) comes in. They offer online classes for middle & high school students... from the home-schooled family, the student brushing up on skills to compete at the next level, or the child facing challenges in traditional schools such as bullying... KCDL provides academic solutions to fit your child's needs.
When you visit KCDL, you simply click on your state to get started. The majority of states only offer privately licensed online schooling, but there were 7 states that also offered online public school. Once you click on the school for your state, it will provide you with all the school information including curriculum and tuition rates (if applicable).
The private school that's offered in every state is The Keystone School. They offer the option of enrolling in a full-time curriculum package or in individual courses to supplement a traditional school or homeschool curriculum. To make online schooling more accessible, they offer payment plans, a discount program for enrolling more than 1 child and for active-duty military members, and even have a 30 day money-back guarantee for all new students, to ensure that Keystone is exactly the academic experience you were looking for.
Keystone students learn at a distance, but the support and school experience are hands-on. From the minute your child enrolls in the Keystone program, you and your child can access teachers, learning coaches, counselors, administrative staff, and other students. We're always just an email or phone call away. Your child can connect with other students through message boards, extracurricular activities, and even a staff-moderated Keystone Facebook page.
Check out this survey conducted by KCDL & Aventa Learning- it says that 88% of teens want more electives, online classes, and flexible schedules, and 55% of kids say that bullying is a problem and a daily concern. You can also click on the following link to experience how students engage with their teachers and classmates online, in a recorded session where students from around the country come together outside of class to discuss the results of the "iGeneration" survey with their teacher and hear their insights.
What do you think- do you already, or would you ever, let your middle or high schooler take classes online?
