Actually, this is NOT new. APS does offer a high school program on the internet, and has been doing so for a number of years.
Our next door neighbor’s grand daughter did this program has she found that she could learn better at her own pace and times.
Seizing the day should be for every child. Working with kids one on one is crucial in their learning and to gain their respect and trust to learn.
Para-professionals are crucial in helping to give the best to children to help them aim high–not only for one on one interactions but to help with testing and other ways to help children to grow to their full potential!
