IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE ENROLLING:

What are the characteristics of a successful virtual learner?

Online Learning offers a rigorous and unique learning opportunity for Bixby students. Before enrolling families need to consider the following student expectations with age/grade level in mind:

  1. I am self-motivated and an independent learner.

  2. I consider myself to be a proficient reader and writer.

  3. I have effective listening skills and can follow directions without a teacher's direct supervision.

  4. I am comfortable using various kinds of technology.

  5. I can effectively organize my time to meet the weekly requirements of the online course.

  6. I am able to devote a substantial amount of time to the online coursework. 

  7. I understand that online courses are challenging and can exceed the requirements of a traditional class. 

  8. I realize that communication with my instructor is very important to a successful online experience.

Is a supplemental or virtual student eligible to compete in school-sponsored extracurricular activities?

  • Yes, for grades 9-12. The school would establish acceptable attendance monitoring that is equivalent to the OSSAA 90% attendance rule. The OSSAA recognizes that local Board of Education decisions and administrations determine attendance at each school.

  • Typically, students in grades K-8 are enrolled in full-time virtual classes.

Are schools required to provide computers or connectivity to students at their home?

  • Students in grades 7-12 are 1:1 and will receive a device.

  • To ensure access for all students, devices and/or internet access will be provided for qualifying students with a documented need.

Can students who begin enrolled traditionally, choose to opt for virtual learning at any time and vice versa?

  • Staff is allocated based on initial enrollment.

  • If there is a need to move TO virtual, students may be placed on a waitlist and admitted in space allows.

  • If there is a need to move FROM virtual, students may return to in-person classes at any time.


    If my child is on an IEP, can that be accommodated in Spartan Connection Academy?

  • Parents with questions related to special education or related services should contact the BPS Director of Special Education.
