California Pacific Charter Schools (CPCS) has an online option available to students in 6-12th grade. CALPAC offers courses online to meet middle school and high school requirements.
Students enrolled in the online option learn with the flexibility of online courses and curriculum [hyperlink to CALPAC curriculum page], but the consistency of a traditional brick and mortar calendar. Students are expected to keep up with their assignments, just like a traditional school program. Each week, students have assignments that are accessible through the online platform--anytime a student has internet access, they have access to their entire curriculum. There are no books or worksheets. Students can access the course content 24/7 and complete work throughout the week at their convenience.
Teachers are available to CALPAC students during regular business hours. Each course has a weekly live session, which is held in real time, in our online, virtual classroom. Teachers may take students on a virtual field trip, prepare for an upcoming test, or present a PowerPoint to enrich the material that the student is accessing online throughout the week in their course. For extra help, students may sign up for online tutoring, offered weekly by each teacher. Teachers are accessible by email, phone, and IM. Homeroom teachers work with students and parents to keep students on pace, making sure they are completing the work each week to stay on track.
Students who come to CALPAC are self-motivated, independent learners. At CALPAC, we celebrate diversity, and welcome all types of students. We have courses for all types of learners, and our students benefit from a personalized approach to education.
