    Digital Access Survey

    Western Academy Charter School will be starting the 2020-2021 school year on Monday, August 31, 2020 with remote learning from home for all students in kindergarten through 8th grade. We realize that some students may not currently have access to a tech device for live lessons, online textbooks, online resources, and digital lessons which will be delivered daily through Google Classroom. In order for each student to fully participate and attend classes each and every day as required, they must have access to their own individual laptop or computer with a camera and microphone with internet access each school day, Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM to 2:45 PM. If your child or children will NOT have their own individual device, access to this type of device with a camera, or had issues with internet access, please complete this survey by WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2020 so the school can distribute them during the pickup dates scheduled from 8/17/20 to 08/24/20 (dates scheduled by last name). You MUST complete a separate survey for each individual student that will require a device. Survey Link: forms.gle/QCQDEi8dxMCo8ddv9

    School Reopening Plan

    As you know our school will be starting the 2020-2021 school year on Monday, August 31, 2020 with remote learning from home for all students in kindergarten through 8th grade. On Wednesday, August 5th at 6:30pm, we will be hosting a Virtual Town Hall Meeting to go over our 2020-2021 School Reopening Plan and to answer any questions you may have about the upcoming school year. While we are all eager to return to traditional face-to-face learning on campus, we must do what is safest for everyone at this point in time. We have created an Innovative Learning Plan for the 20-21 school year that includes beginning the year in distance learning with a phased approach to returning to campus.
