Scope and Delivery of the Nettle Creek Virtual Academy
The Nettle Creek Virtual Academy will offer a virtual option to students in grades K – 12. To be a full-time student, a student must meet specific requirements. The courses are made available through a partnership with Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy and will include a full Elementary program including all four core courses as well as electives. The Secondary students (6-12 grades) will be offered all core courses, electives, AP, and Global Language courses; everything a student needs to earn a district-approved diploma. Nettle Creek Virtual Academy will NOT be a stand-alone school. Each full-time student will be officially enrolled in either Hagerstown Elementary School or Hagerstown Jr.-Sr. High School. Students in grades K-6 will be eligible to be part of HES’s extra-curricular activities including athletics, band, clubs, or any school-sponsored activity. Part-time, in-person attendance is not permitted at HES. Students in grades 7-12 must attend at least one class in person, on campus in order to be eligible for extra-curricular activities (this follows the IHSAA by-laws).
Each course will have a certified teacher provided by EdOptions Academy. This teacher is the teacher of record and will be working with the student to teach and guide them through the course.
Each student will also be assigned to a Success Coach. The Success Coach will work with the student to make sure the student has everything they need to be successful in the courses. The Coach will provide important information about the school such as testing dates and locations.
Most Important: The student is required to meet with the success coach either live or on the phone on a weekly basis to go over progress.
