To provide East Baton Rouge Parish youth with the opportunity to receive a high school diploma through the Superintendent's Academy blended learning program; a program that prepares students for college and career readiness. By utilizing a lower teacher/student ratio via the use of technology, a blended learning program will work to better prepare students for college and career readiness. The academies will target enrollment of 4-12 grade students who strive to complete their high school education and earn their diploma.
The program will incorporate flexible scheduling, credit recovery, course choice and support services in a blended learning environment to develop personal responsibility, community involvement, academic development, and career and college readiness. The academy provides students the opportunity to be engaged in a highly personalized learning environment where students take ownership of their learning.
Students attending these programs will primarily work in a flexible learning environment with a standard-based online curriculum provided by Edgenuity with face-to-face access to Learning Coaches. In addition, students will receive tier II and III interventions in English language arts and math from research-based programs/strategies. All students will be scheduled in courses according to credit needs and accelerate through the content on an individual basis.
