Kansas Connections Academy, a tuition-free K-12 virtual public school, will host a free information session for families interested in learning about its online program and individualized approach to education in Fort Scott at Fort Scott Community College's Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center.
The non-traditional learning environment can be a great fit for many types of students, including those who are significantly ahead or behind in the classroom, those who need a flexible schedule, those who learn at a different pace from their peers or need more individualized attention, and those who live in rural settings. Homebound and previously home-schooled students can also thrive in Connections Academy’s program.
The information session will provide families with an opportunity to meet with a Connections Academy teacher, thoroughly explore the school’s program and curriculum, and learn about the enrollment process. Other topics covered include: how teachers interact with students in the virtual environment, personalized learning opportunities including options for accelerated learning and gifted programs, college preparation, socialization, the role of the parent or other Learning Coach, and the use of technology.
