Another exhibitor was Patty Ferrell, instructional technology coordinator for the Jefferson County Educational Service Center, who shared information about the Ohio Cyber Academy, an online school for students in grades K-12; and the Virtual Learning Academy, which also offers online instruction for those grades.
said through partnerships with all school districts in Jefferson County school districts and many others in Ohio, the Virtual Learning Academy
is able to supplement the education offered by many traditional schools.
For example, students with busy class schedules may pursue additional credit for elective courses available through the online service and those who have failed a course may make it up through the program.
added because the program complies with standards set by the Ohio Department of Education
, it is a popular option for home-schooled children.
