Courses are conducted online using a learning management system called Blackboard. Our Blackboard site is password protected and serves as our online classroom where all course content is posted and assignments collected.
- Lessons are conducted asynchronously (not at a set time), allowing students to complete their assignments at their convenience, while still adhering to due dates for assignments.
- Synchronous (at a set time) learning activities may be planned. However, accommodations are provided for students unable to participate during specified day and time.
- E-mail is the main mode of communication between teachers, students, and parents. It is important that students log on to Blackboard and check their e-mail daily.
Course offerings vary per semester. Here is a list of our courses:
