The ACPS Online Learning program (ACPS OLP) offers students an opportunity to take Credit Recovery, Advanced Placement (AP), elective and original (first time) credit courses.
Students who entered ninth grade in 2013-14 or after are required to have a virtual course experience in order to earn a Standard or Advanced Studies Diploma. ACPS students have three options available to them in order to meet that requirement:
- Take a course through the Online Learning program
- Take Economics and Personal Finance (face-to-face) or
- Take standard American Government (face-to-face)
Economics and Personal Finance and the standard American Government course have been designed to be taught in a blended environment, thereby meeting the ACPS board approved definition to meet the online course requirement.
All courses offered through the ACPS OLP provide individualized, self-paced instruction and take place on a learning management system, such as Blackboard. upon enrollment, students are assigned a site-based mentor to support their course enrollment as well as an online teacher to support the content. Courses are available for students in grades 9-12 and 6-8 (when deemed appropriate by school administration). Similarly, AP courses are available for grades 10-12 and as deemed appropriate by school administration for ninth graders.
