    Program Overview 

    PlatformStudents are provided with access to a web-based student portal which includes access to their coursework, virtual classrooms, online gradebook and numerous other resources. The portal also includes a monthly calendar and weekly progress indicator to help students stay on track and finish their coursework on time. 

    Parents/Guardians are provided with a Parent Portal account where they can view their students’ online gradebook, coursework submissions, graded work, and daily activity, as well as, the monthly calendar and weekly progress indicator. 

    Materials, Equipment & Technical Support:  Students in LEAD Cyber Academy receive a district-issued notebook computer to utilize while in the program. Students will also receive physical textbooks for each of their assigned courses. If needed, Help Desk Specialists and District Tech Support are available daily in order to provide assistance with the online interface and equipment issues. 

    Learning Environment & Curriculum: We recognize that each student has a personal learning style and unique requirements for scheduling flexibility. LEAD Cyber Academy is designed to provide students with the flexibility they need while maintaining daily checkpoints to ensure students are accountable and develop the necessary skills to be a successful online learner. The Virtual Learning Network curriculum used in LEAD Cyber Academy is standards-aligned and district-approved for grades K-12. Courses are designed with a consistent weekly module structure which provides students with engaging content while dividing the coursework into manageable lessons. Courses include a wealth of web-based resources, including: lectures, videos, interactive animations, supplemental materials from textbook publishers and a wide range of other engaging educational media. 

    Mastering the ContentA variety of activities and assessments are vital to a student’s success. While multiple-choice assessments are an important part of any assessment structure, we ask students to further demonstrate mastery with the following exercises: 

    Assignments:

    A set of questions/problems designed to provide students with practice of key concepts.

    Short Answers

    A 5-question assessment that requires students to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson topics and key concepts.

    Essays A topical essay question intended to assess students’ knowledge of the overall concept outlined in the reading assignment and to gauge students’ writing skills.

    Projects Long-term assignments interspersed throughout a course to give students the opportunity to build on multiple units. 

    Students are also asked to show their work on all math coursework so our teachers can fully evaluate their understanding of the material.

    We know that providing students with many options and opportunities to customize their learning is important to their growth and development.  The future our students will experience will be much different than we as parents have experienced in the world of work; therefore, education that develops a wider skill set that is flexible and adaptive can only be accomplished when students are given many opportunities and experiences.  Our new LEAD Cyber Academy is an innovative approach to online learning that ultimately leads to a Lakeview School District Diploma.

    Through LEAD Academy, our school district is able to provide students with the option of hybrid scheduling or full-time cyber school.  We will work with you and your student in developing a custom schedule of online and/or in person courses.  Our cyber academy students also enjoy full access to extra-curricular activities, clubs, athletics, and district resources such as counseling and tutoring services, libraries, and athletic facilities.  We even provide an on-campus drop in study center so our cyber academy students have a place where they can go to work free of distractions.  LEAD Cyber academy students also may participate in a career or technical program through the Mercer County Career Center. And finally, all students may participate in school sponsored field trips and social events, such as prom.
