A successful cyber school student is one that has structure and involvement of parents/guardians. Your child's success is a combination of effort from you as well as their teachers. Provide structure by establishing a daily routine. Monitor your child's course work and verify attendance. You should not just take their word that they are turning in assignments. Ask to see their work. Login to Skyward weekly to check grades, missing assignments and attendance. Our teachers encourage you to maintain contact with them either by phone or email.
It is extremely important that you ensure your child comes into school for state mandated testing as dictated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Dates are provided well in advance for you to make arrangements to have your child come in on those days.
It is important that you stay involved with your child's education whether it is online or in school.
Being able to stay home every day and complete school work in your pajamas is appealing at first to many students when they hear about cyber schools. However, a lot of work is still required to make being a cyber school student work.
