Certified Teachers Make the Most of Each Student's Experience
Teachers at Pikes Peak Online School manage all facets of the instructional experience.The teacher assigned to your student establishes the his or her Individualized Learning Plan, monitors progress, provides targeted intervention when needed, answers questions, and monitors attendance.
Unlike a traditional school, our teachers do most of this work remotely rather than in the classroom.Teachers communicate with both parents and students on a regular basis through various methods such as e-mail, phone, one-to-one online meetings, and live "ClassConnect" sessions .
As your child progresses, the teacher remains involved to monitor progress, ensure mastery, and develop a specific intervention plan if he or she is struggling with a concept. These difficulties are identified by assessments at the end of every lesson and unit, by the regular progress testing proscribed at the beginning of the year, and through direct check-ins between parent, student, and teacher.
Academic instruction happens through real-time "ClassConnect" online sessions. Extra sessions are offered, as needed, one-to-one and in small groups to help students work through difficult topics. Our high school teachers are all subject-matter experts and are available to help with coursework and answer questions online, over the phone, and by posting information and advice for all students in the "Teacher's Office" threaded discussion board.
