What Do Parents Want to Know?
We asked our Enrollment/Recruitment Specialist, Lou , “What are the most commonly asked questions of prospective parents and students?” He had a lot to say! But here are a few things that he feels may help you as you look for the best school option for your child!
What Parents Want to Know:
1.) What separates 21CCCS from the other cyber schools?
There are a few things that we do differently here at 21CCCS. Our teacher-developed curriculum can be easily modified to meet students’ needs.
Teacher communication and availability are our greatest strengths. Teachers are constantly reaching out to students to touch base, check for understanding and progress, and keep a strong working relationship.
Finally, 21CCCS has a proven academic track record. We have made AYP 9 out of 8 years, and continue to provide exceptional learning for a variety of student needs.
2.) Do we provide all necessary school equipment?
We provide a MacBook computer, which we feel offers high quality, as these are reliable machines. We also provide textbooks, calculators, physical education kits, art kits, and more. Finally, we offer Internet connection reimbursement for students in need.
3.) How is the course material presented to the students? Is it all just text on a website?
Teachers use a variety of web-based platforms to deliver content in various ways. Students will receive audio, video, interactive presentations, and text through their learning management system. They will also receive interactive, collaborative learning through synchronous class sessions and one-on-one tutoring.
4.) Can a student work ahead? Can they work ahead only in a particular subject or can they also work through different grade levels as well?
Student learning is entirely self-paced. Students may opt to work ahead or take more time to complete assignments in any subject. Should they work faster through a certain grade level, that is allowed as well. Some of our students have completed grade work in less time than their peers. It is entirely up to you!
5.) What happens if my child has a question regarding an assignment? What if there is a problem with his/her computer?
Teachers are available by phone from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. They are available from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Fridays. There are Virtual Office links provided through our Learning Management System so students may also enter the Virtual Office space for tutoring at any of these times.
Our technology team provides support via telephone or Virtual Office as well. If our tech team is not able to solve a computer problem on the day requested, they will gladly ship out a replacement computer while they troubleshoot the issue.
The school is always willing and able to assist those in need!
